Post #7

Reading: Cooking for Kings, the Life of the First Celebrity Chef, Antonin Careme
Watching: Nothing. TV still sucks.
Eating: Stir-fried pork with roasted radishes over rice.

After trying Kalyn's Roasted Radishes, I had a sneaking feeling that they'd go well with pork. I marinated some cut-up lean pork in chili-garlic sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and oyster sauce. Stir-fried that up. Roasted the cut-up radishes for 20 minutes in a thin coating of canola oil until they were starting to brown, tossed in a little soy sauce, mixed with the cooked pork, and served over white rice.

Conclusion: Roasted radishes go well with pork.
Conclusion #2: Not a very photogenic dish. But next time I might try throwing in the radish greens at the end, which could improve it's photographability.
