  1. What a yummy dish….snow here, so kind of comfort flavors/textures too. I did use pork loin as my meat and cut into thick boneless chops. To get the texture I wanted I did use a pressure cooker. Brown rice was handy, so I happened to use that, though I love all kinds of rice. I was in a hurry, or I’d have allowed juices to reduce longer to caramelize a bit more. Hope everyone had a fun Valentine’s Day in the kitchen today preparing for your cupid-match.

    1. Cindy, your pic looks like such a nice generous portion. Looks great. Those eggs….I guess I’m gonna have to just go back and try those, they look so interesting; I cook w/some teas but I don’t eat eggs much…..must try. They are beautiful.


      1. Thanks Steve. Yes, those eggs are fun and beautiful. I had never cooked with tea. Interestingly, I had a pastry this morning with figs that had been soaked in black tea….it was really good. Now, I’m curious what else would be good cooked in tea?!


  2. If you make a concentrate of tea it is a nice marinade for chicken or whitefish. If you grind loose leaf tea to an easy texture it makes a great dry rub for chicken, pork, beef.
