It’s no secret that I have a love for stir fry. I have a growing collection of pork, chicken and beef stir fry recipes on this blog, and I’m sure it will continue to grow as I experiment. I’ve created several recipes myself, most of which are already posted. This time however, I chose a recipe from a friend’s blog.
You see, it’s time again for The Secret Recipe Club! We started this fun club last month as a way to try other recipes and help introduce our readers to each others’ blogs. After its inaugural post, we picked up quite a few new members and are now up to just under 50 participants! One of those new members is an old friend of mine, Barb from Mom’s Fridge. I’ve known her online for many years through my old website, FamilyCorner. Barb is an avid cook and knows her stuff. I was excited to try one of her recipes as soon as I found out that her blog was to the one I was assigned.
I chose a Cashew Chicken recipe from her blog. I kept it relatively close to the original, but I did double it, changed a couple of the vegetables, and changed the method to mirror that of all the stir fries I make. I generally cook the garlic first, then the meat, and finally the vegetables. I always add the green onions last since they have a tendency to turn to mush if you add them too early.
We really enjoyed this dish, it was quite delicious and very easy. I mentioned that I doubled this recipe, which I usually do with most stir fries simply because I have 6 hungry mouths to feed, all of which love stir fry as much as me. I’m beginning to think I was either meant to be Chinese or Mexican, considering my love for both cuisines!
