Making light of a serious situation! Because for anyone who’d watched Shokugeki no Souma, they’d know that the feature image is from one of the most intense moments of the first season.
Yesterday I woke up super late. I didn’t feel like going outside for a take-away for that matter.
So, after having a good stare at my opened up fridge, I’ve decided to pull out some of the remaining ingredients to make probably the laziest dish that would give even Chinese take-aways a run for their money.
Mung Bean Sprouts Stir Fry
- A wok and something to stir fry with
- A chopping board
- A chopping knife
- A rice cooker or a pot
- Cooking oil – 2 + 2 tablespoons
- Mixed vegetables – easily found in supermarket! Look for the stir fry bag if there happens to be any.
- White soy sauce – anywhere from 3 tablespoons
- Oyster sauce – a cup
- 100-200 g meat of choice
- Spring onion (optional)
- Mung bean sprouts
Finely chop the onions and spring onions shall you have the latter as well. Make sure you cook the rice before starting to cook this meal because it really only takes ten minutes.
Heat up the oil in a wok, throw the meat in and fry it. Make sure to rid of the sour juice that comes out of the cooked meat.
Clean the wok and pour another two tablespoons of cooking oil in there again. Cook the onion until it gets a little crispy. Throw the cooked meat back in there and stir around for a minute or two. Add the vegetables, mung bean sprouts and white soy sauce. Keep them stirred while letting the soy sauce seep into the meat and veges.
Lastly, pour down oyster sauce and throw in the chopped spring onions. Stir for a few more minutes and wala~
This is actually one of those dishes that you may go full on creative. I kept mine simple by using only two sauces. I got the sweet taste from oyster sauce while I didn’t need any salt; I had plenty of that taste from the white soy sauce!
The only thing that mattered to me was that it tasted similar to how a Chinese take-away would. Oh and this recipe is for three servings.
Thank you Tadokoro Megumi! You have certainly saved Souma (and I) from having to cash in on the more expensive meal outside. 🙂
