I had a craving for some egg rolls. I bought some wrappers some time ago and found them in the freezer the other day so figured it was a sign to make these! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to put in them, so I thought of all the best flavors I’d had in egg rolls and what sounded good to my palate and came up with these. Simple, tasty, and only a few ingredients; just how I like to cook!
I love rosemary and garlic combined with pork. In these rosemary pork skewers I added the sweetness of honey too. I found the honey left a nice caramelization on the meat when it cooked. Trust me, the chicken ones from last week were good and preferred at dinner by over half the guests, but these pork ones were preferred by me and a few others. Maybe it’s because it’s pork. Maybe it was the flavors. I’m really believing that it’s both things!
I had a craving for salt and pepper pork. It’s one of my favorite things to get when I go for Chinese. Unfortunately a lot the Chinese restaurants in my neighborhood don’t serve it. They have this in chicken form, which is delicious, but not what I was craving. I googled what to do to make this delicious dish. I found a great recipe here that I altered a bit to make it more what I was used to eating.
Years ago my friend shared her mom’s recipe for chimichurri. I was obsessed with this Argentine sauce. You can put it on any meat. Even better on grilled meat in the summertime. Since I don’t have a grill, I had to find a way to make this at home. I chose chicken thighs to enjoy this with.
