|When my chicken starts frozen, I toss the whole thing in, and then bring it out to slice into strips|
when it's halfway done cooking. Then I toss it back in to finish the job.
|I sliced my veggies at midnight the night prior, so I wasn't about to use my |
mandolin slicer. Bad idea, mandolin slicer at that hour. So my veggies are a thicker
slice, which is actually really nice at early morning hours to eat!
|This is what it looks like when almost done cooking|
I'd say it takes about 8 minutes or so to cook through. Just look into the pan and see if the eggs look done. It'll depend on how high your heat is. For the above pan, I had the heat on medium high, and it was done in 5 minutes. Just keep an eye on it. Serve with rice.
|You can see the rice peeping through under it..so good!|
Roughly 235 calories and 11 carbs for the Oyako Donburi. Doesn't include the rice.
Skipping around, meal-wise, we'll go to tonight's dinner. TBG felt inspired after my blackberry glazed salmon, and was intrigued to try a raspberry maple glaze for beef. It was really good! We had some leftover mashed potato's from last time, so I served sirloin steak with raspberry maple glaze, mashed potato's and broccoli. He has great ideas, my man.
First, the meat:
|We're trying to portion control, so we each had our own smaller slice of meat. |
Which is actually a lot better for us, than when we'd make a HUGE hunk of meat and split it..
I wanted to sear the meat a bit, so I sprinkled a bit of salt on both sides of my meat to prep them.
|I love cast iron skillets. Great for stove top AND oven use!|
I used peanut oil-enough to cover the pan. Heat the pan until it's
so hot the oil ripples. You know you're ready then.
|Flipped it. Smelled so insanely good!|
After searing both sides (or all sides, if you prefer) toss it in the oven to finish cooking while you work on preparing the other food. I had it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350.
|Once they came out. Drain them well.|
|6 oz fresh raspberries. Mmmm...|
|It's so pretty!|
|I LOVE the colors of the raspberry. So incredibly gorgeous!|
