Well, today I had my parents over for dinner. I made everyone's favorite dish, Bulgogi. Granted I can't eat it anymore, and Monkey, who was born in S.Korea wants nothing to do with this ethnic wonder, it turned out great. Instead of the normal beef used, I used some venison backstrap. I sliced it thin and added the CORN allergic marinade (this is per handful of meat per a Korean friend):
4 tbl Soy Sauce
2 Tbs Mirin
2 Tbs Sugar or Honey
1 Tbs Chopped Garlic
1 Tbs Sesame Oil
Some Sesame Seeds and Pepper
2 Tbs Pear or Apple Juice
Let this marinade for a bit with the meat in the fridge, a few hours is all that is needed and then put in a nice flat pan. I love my big All Clad, and use chopsticks to move the meat around as it cooks. What did I partake in you ask? Oh, how sweet of you!!! I had some venison marinated in Our Daily Red Sulfite Free and Organic Red wine and Garlic with a touch of EVOO from Italy. This was all served over rice.
Mr. Chicken ended up going home with my mom to cook. It appears that frozen chickens can take a while to defrost, more than the day that I allowed so he will be ready for me around 5:30 tomorrow night after we get done with Sweet Pea's ortho appt.
In non food or allergy related issues, Baby Beak needs love! I told Hubby to relocate his house back to the family room so he can be more a part of our daily activities. Hopefully we will do this soon. Isn't he cute???
