seared bean sprouts with pork & sesame orange sauce

well that was an unintended absence.

last week, my macbook pro met an untimely death at the hands of my husband & a full oskar blues g’knight beer.  it was in standby mode, so we threw it in a bag full of rice, made a genius bar appointment & cried hoped for the best.  $1300 & a recovered hard drive later…

DSC 5749 seared bean sprouts with pork & sesame orange sauce

this week’s food matters project recipe was chosen by dominica of wine food love.  the original recipe called for beef, but much to tom’s dismay, i haven’t eaten beef in at least fifteen years.  in it’s place, we thinly sliced a boneless pork chop, added some soba noodles to soak up the sauce & really enjoyed the asian inspired combination of flavors & the crispness of the bean sprouts against the chewiness of the soba.  to top things off, we drizzled just a touch of toasted sesame oil over each serving for a little bit of added richness.

to see what everyone else thought about this dish & their variations, check out the food matters project.  the full recipe can be found at wine food love.

    Simply beautiful! Wish I ate my dish with noodles… I had leftover quinoa so had to settle for that.

  3. Yikes that computer issue sounds painful! I think toasted sesame oil would be perfect on top!
