Quick Chicken Franks & Veggie Bistik - Bistik Sosis & Sayuran
SC and I felt that we have been spending money like water these days....so we kinda made a commitment to cut back a little. We didn't know where the money went...but I guess it's probably all the good food we eat these days :D
Thus, I agreed to make and pack our lunch most of the days, even if we dined out the night before. Sometimes, we came back from a night out and it's too late to get any ingredients from the market/supermarket...and I don't have a habit of keeping ingredients on hand, I normally just buy what I need for the day (the beauty of living in the city). This was one of those nights...
Luckily, I had a pack of chicken franks and half a pack of frozen veggies. So there you go...lunch. I just did them in flavors that I always love...Indonesian bistik.
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 2 cloves of shallot, thinly sliced
- 4 chicken franks, sliced
- 1 cup of frozen mixed vegetables, quickly defrosted in hot water
- light soy sauce, sweet soy sauce (the dominant flavor), nutmeg, olive oil, white pepper, hot water
- crispy shallot for garnish
Brown the sliced chicken franks in a bit of hot olive oil, add garlic and shallot, cook until fragrant, add veggies, add sauces, add a bit of hot water, serve with rice, garnish with crispy shallot.
More lunch box means more dining out.
Can't wait for my next treat ^_^
