I showed you the Marinated Turkey Breast that Bob grilled. It was delicious, but way more than we could eat. I needed to decide what to do with the leftovers. I also had leftover Baked Potato Salad and Riced Cauliflower with Vegetables.
 
I heated up the Cauliflower in the microwave and added two kinds of cheese.
 
The only dish that needed cooking was the Asian Turkey Breast with Vegetables. There is no recipe, but depending on how much you’re making, simply start with a little of each ingredient and go from there 🙂 It’s fast, simple, low calorie, and delicious!
 
INGREDIENTS:
 
Leftover Turkey, Cooked and Sliced
3 TBSP Teriyaki Sauce
2 TBSP Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 TBSP Oyster Sauce
2 tsp Thai Chili Sauce
2 TBSP Honey
Assorted Vegetables: Choose from: Broccoli, Asparagus, Onions, Mini Sweet Peppers, Carrots, Snow Peas, Green Onions, Mushrooms, etc.
 
PREPARATION:
 
Drizzle a little Olive Oil in the bottom of a large Frying Pan. Add the Vegetables and cook until crisp tender.
 
Add Turkey, Teriyaki Sauce, Soy Sauce, Oyster Cause, Chili Sauce, and Honey. Stir well. When the Turkey is heated through, serve! I served it over Brown Rice.

YAKISOBA SAUCE

Yakisoba Sauce

     What is Asian Yakisoba Sauce?  Other than delicious and easy to make?  Use it on Yakisoba Noodles, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Shrimp.  What does it taste like?  It’s a teeny bit sweet, a teeny bit spicy, a teeny bit salty, and a teeny bit sweet.  You are welcome to customize it.  If you want it hotter, add a bit more Honey or Hoisin Sauce, if extra Tang gets your taste buds in a whirl, up the Rice Vinegar by another teaspoon.  For a Spicier version, add a few extra drops of Chili Oil or even some Siracha Sauce.  Here’s how I made it:

 

INGREDIENTS:  Yields ½ cup +/-

4 TBSP low sodium Soy Sauce

2 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce

1 TBSP Rice Vinegar

1 TBSP Honey or sugar

1/8- ¼ tsp Chili Oil

1 TBSP ketchup

2 tsp Hoisin Sauce

2 TBSP Oyster Sauce

½ tsp fresh Ginger root, finely minced

 

PREPARATION:

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl using a fork or small whisk.  Cover and refrigerate.

YAKISOBA NOODLES

Yakisoba - Copy

Move over, Mexican Street Corn. 

     These were hands down the best noodles I’ve ever had in my life!  One pan, and just a few minutes is all it takes to create this taste sensation.

   What are Japanese Yakisoba Noodles?  If lightly-Browned Stir-Fried Japanese Noodles sound good, just wait until you taste them!  You can travel to a Japanese street fair, stop at a food stall, or even sporting events.  Yakisoba Noodles are everywhere!   Sometimes it is served in a Hoagie style roll to make it more portable and easier to eat.

     Currently one of the most popular foods in Japan, Yakisoba is flavored with a condiment called Yakisoba Sauce, which foundation is Oyster, Worcestershire, and Soy Sauce.

     Traditionally made with fresh Yaki-Soba Pan Fry Noodles, (Buckwheat Noodles), dried Ramen noodles, or other Japanese-style noodles.  In a pinch, use Spaghetti or Fettuccini will work just as well. Just don’t overcook them because they will be cooked again

     Yakisoba translates to fried buckwheat noodles.  Part of the reason this dish grew so much in popularity is Japan began to grow its own buckwheat.

 

INGREDIENTS:

6 ounces Dried Noodles or 10 oz Fresh Japanese style noodles

2 Drizzles of Sesame Oil, or Canola oil for frying

Assorted Vegetables

Yakisoba Sauce (My recipe below)

A little Salt and Pepper

PREPARATION:

I used my Braiser Pan because I wanted to make a one pan dish.  You can cook the noodles in a Dutch Oven if you prefer.  I used Fettuccini Noodles and cooked them for about 7 minutes, then drained and rinsed in cold water.  Set aside.

In the same pan, drizzle a little oil and begin cooking the vegetables until they are crisp tender, starting with the ones that take longer to cook.  I did the Carrots first, then added the Brussels Sprouts.   I added a few Tablespoons of the Yakisoba Sauce to the Vegetables so they’d get extra flavor.  I always use Low Sodium Soy Sauce, so a touch of Salt and Pepper is necessary.

Once all the Vegetables are cooked, return the noodles to the pan.  I added another Tablespoon or so of Oil here.  Continue cooking and stirring, adding Yakisoba Sauce a Tablespoon at a time until the Noodles take on a darker color.  Taste one every once in a while.  I made enough for 4 servings and only used a little over half of the Yakisoba Sauce recipe below.  Too much Yakisoba Sauce and you’ll have a very salty noodle.  They will soak up the Sauce as they go. It’s up to you how long to cook the Noodles.  They can remain soft or a little on the crispy side.  Your choice.  Garnish with Sesame Seeds if you’d like.

EGG ROLLS, CHICKEN OR SHRIMP

Egg Rolls (7)

If you’d like to do a fun family project, make egg rolls. It is quick and easy, once everything is chopped. Even the little kids can help! We’ve made them for years and SO prefer them over any restaurant’s egg rolls.

MARINADE INGREDIENTS:

1 ½ lbs chicken, skinless boneless (OR 12 oz. peeled raw shrimp)

¼ cup honey

¼ cup low sodium soy sauce

½ cup canola oil

½” slice of fresh ginger root, chopped

2-4 cloves chopped garlic

3 TBSP chopped onion

Dash crushed red pepper flakes

 

Slice chicken into thin slices or small chunks.  Mix all ingredients and let chicken marinate for around four hours.

 

With a slotted utensil, remove chicken from marinade and discard the marinade.  Stir fry chicken until cooked through.  If you want, save some for chicken fried rice.

REMAINING FILLING INGREDIENTS:

 

1 tsp sugar

Salt and pepper

Shredded Bok choy, approximately 4 cups

Chopped onions

½ tsp sesame oil

2 TBSP Low sodium soy sauce

1 tsp Rice wine vinegar

 

OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS:  water chestnuts, sprouts, green onions.

If you’d rather have shrimp egg rolls, cut 12 oz peeled shrimp into chunks and follow the chicken egg roll recipe exactly (with the exception of only marinating the shrimp for an hour).

 

After chicken is cooked, remove to a bowl.  In the same pan, stir fry the vegetables with remaining filling ingredients for a minute or two.  Let cool and add to chicken.

 

Brush one entire side of wrapper with an egg wash.  Add approximately ½ cup filling, leaving at least ½” on the sides.  Fold two corners in toward the center and then roll tightly. The egg wash will add a tad of flavor and allow the rolls to seal when pressed at the edges.

 

Brush with olive oil and bake at 400° F for about 12 – 15 minutes or until browned.  Turn over and bake an additional 5 – 10 minutes. Drain on paper toweling. Serve with various dipping sauces.

BACON WRAPPED ORIENTAL CHESTNUTS

Bacon Wrapped Oriental Chestnuts (5)

     I’ve had this recipe forever.  It makes a great appetizer or side dish when you’re serving an Asian meal.  They are also great party grub!  Serve them with a variety of dipping sauces, Chinese mustard, or my favorite – plain old maple syrup.  I’ve included some dipping sauce recipes below that I pulled off google.  They aren’t my creations.

Roll bacon around chestnut.  Secure with a toothpick.  Lightly roll in sugar.  Cook in 400°F oven 15-20 minutes or until bacon is done to desired crispness.

Hint:  Turn oven off for the last couple of minutes to save energy.  Bacon will continue to cook.
