Olympic Inspiration

Chinese Hot Pot - or our version of it anyway! I was watching the "Today Show" a fews days ago, which you may know has been broadcasting from Beijing during the Olympics, and I saw the chef they've been using for segments on Chinese cooking. He made a Hot Pot that looked so good and seemed like a special way to use the very last of our bok choy and snow peas. I was intending to make a plain old stir-fry but this looked like something worth trying, and it was! If we had done it authentically, it would have been a bit like fondue, but cooking the meat and veggies in a hot broth rather than oil. We chose to cook everything together at one time and serve it over the rice noodles. The meat we used was a thinly sliced, marinated, flat iron steak. Yummy.

Has anyone else been drooling over the street food they've been showing over there in Beijing? Wow it looks fantastic.

Well, this is all then.
