reaping the food tag benefits

posted on: Saturday, April 5, 2008

So I did a food tag a while back and today I tracked down the recipe's that people shared from my food tag. The three I could find were from Kristen, Mariko (private blog), and the LATU-VAKI FAMILY

here are the recipe's that they posted. Yum and thanks for sharing.

Mighty’s Bi Bim Bap
Makes 2
This is my current obsession. I was wanting to eat out a lot so that I could get this dish. It’s Korean, so I can’t really claim it, but this is what I realized I could make on hand at my house. I went to the Korean market to get the kolchugang sauce, but I think it can be found pretty easily. And if you don't like hot sauce anyway, you don't need it. I think it adds good flavor, though.

½ lb Teriyaki sliced beef (or other thin-sliced meat--sukiyaki or shabu shabu style)
½ C Bulgogi marinade
OR-- if none is available--
Soy sauce, sugar, apple/pear/or other sweet fruit juice, sesame oil, garlic
1 carrot cut into matchsticks
½ zucchini cut into matchsticks
Sesame oil
Sesame seeds
½ cucumber cut into matchsticks
2 eggs
Kolchugang sauce to taste (Korean red hot sauce--this is optional, but gives it a good texture and flavor)
Hot white rice

1. Marinate meat for about 1-2 hours beforehand
2. Cut meat up into small pieces and fry in a pan quickly (so that the meat cooks fast without losing a lot of water).
3. Saute carrot and zucchini in a little sesame oil-- add sesame seeds during the last minute. Season with a little salt. Cook until just barely done.
4. Fry eggs, leave yolks uncooked.
5. Put rice in bowls for serving
6. Arrange carrot/zucchini/sesame seed mix on 1/3 of the top, 1/3 beef pieces, 1/3 cucumber. Place egg on top. Put desired amount of hot sauce and stir the whole mixture together before eating.
*You can also put in some cooked, chopped up spinach or other vegetables.
*if you have Korean seaweed, cut into strips and add on top

Oreo cake.

Just prepare a regular white cake mix from a box. The ones that say extra pudding in the mix or extra moist of course are the yummiest.
Then crush up some oreo cookies in a bag and then mix them in the cake mix. Bake as directed on box.
Frost with homemade butter cream frosting or heck, even the stuff in the jar at the supper market is good stuff.
Decorate top with cookies!
Enjoy! Simple, Fun, and of course very tasty. Great for kids birthday parties!

Cilantro Lime Dressing and Pulled Pork
(I shared this before but Kristen explains it in much simpler ways.)

This is sooooo yummy!
Throw a pork butt (yes, I said pork butt, rump roast, whatever here in Hawaii they actually tag it pork butt :) into the crock pot. I just rub it down with salt/pepper and fresh crushed garlic, but you can also do salsa and some brown sugar. Crock it 3-4 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.

Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Dressing
1 1/3 cups sour cream
3/4 cup mayo
1 bunch of cilantro (I put stems in also)
1 pkg ranch dressing mix (dry)
4 tbsp salsa verde (green salsa)
2 cloves of garlic
1/8 tsp. Tabasco sauce
juice of one lime (I also add the zest of that lime)
Mix together in blender and that's it!
Eat with the pork on a salad or taco style on a tortilla, it's sooooooo yummy!
