Speaking of food. I'm serving some guests a Chinese Barbecue tonight. Oddly named since no BBQ is involved. It's either slow roasted or in this case, in a slow cooker at home right now. The pork will be shredded when it's done and the remaining sauce reduced to something that goes nice over the meat and basmati rice.

What I'm looking for is a good variation for the stir fried vegetables. Simple is the theme, as you can see, since we won't have a lot of prep time between work and the guests arrival. I'm looking for quick and easy and a flavor that won't overbear the Chinese BBQ sauce but still has some flavor over a straight oil.

Suggestions?

Edit:
P.S. I found it rather disturbing that my spell checker wanted to change basmati rice to baptismal rice.

My standard stir fry: some sort of high-heat oil, a dash of sesame oil, soy or teriyaki sauce, crushed ginger and garlic, veggies. If you want a little heat, add crushed red pepper.

You could also another route and use black bean paste, mirin, ginger, and garlic. If you don't have black bean paste, you could use concentrated mushroom stock to get your dose of umami. smile

Oh, and baptismal rice is pretty rare these days. When people used to throw rice at weddings, some of it inevitably ended up in the baptismal font of churches. Church weddings are usually on a Saturday, and baptisms are usually on Sundays so there's not much time between one event and the other to find all the stray rice grains.

Anyhow, many parents would freak out when they found what they thought was lice in the hair of their newly baptized children. Naturally, they blamed the churches for this.

And that's the real reason why throwing rice at weddings has fallen out of fashion.

Thanks Peter. Looks like your standard is my standard. I've never tried bean paste though. I won't have time to hunt it down this evening but added it to my mental grovery list for next time.

Ha. I typo-ed grocery but I like the above better, so I'm leaving it.

That does sound yum. I'm just glad I won't be standing next to you at a urinal any time soon though with all that asparagus.

Our regular supermarket actually had some anaheim and Thai chile peppers lately beside the usual pile of jalapeno so I went crazy last two weekends. We made & canned 14 large mason jars of Anaheim Pepper Salsa. So much work, but soooo good.

I also made some hot sauce by substituting the Thai peppers for Habenaro in my Habenaro Hot Sauce recipe. Wasn't as hot but still yummy. Finally, since I had a few Thai peppers left over but not enough for more sauce, I made some 'Ginger, Thai Pepper Oil' to spice up future salads & stir fries.

Spinach salad with pears, walnuts and goat cheese with a balsamic vinaigrette. Simple to make and very tasty.

I don't understand. And this is something you garnish a steak with?
