Vermicelli Noodles

Went to Asian market with my Filipina friend the other day and we bought lots of stuff. Of course, one of those things on the lists is the noodles. My taste bud is craving for Filipino food again. So today, I cooked vermicelli noodles or what we called "sotanghon" with shrimp and chicken. Soo yummy! It is also best if served with rice ;).

Stir-fried eggplant

I made more stir-fried eggplant. But this time, I didn't boiled the eggplant and I also used thinly sliced beef and marinated with soy sauce and lemon for an hour. Usually when I cooked, I don't really measure everything. I just do it the way I taste it and my preferences. First, saute the garlic and onion. Then add the marinated beef. Let it set for 15 minutes until it cooked then put the eggplant and carrots. Season it with soy sauce and pepper. Let it stand for another 10 minutes or until the eggplant is cooked. It is best when served with rice. It is really simple and easy.

Anne's style: stirfry eggplant

They are so many simple ways of cooking an eggplant. I used to cook eggplant alot when I was in the Philippines. My parents grew certain vegetables in our garden including eggplant. During harvest time, the quickest way is to fry them and dip with soy sauce. 

Today, I cooked eggplant in another way and style.  A boiled eggplant sauteed with garlic, onion, tomato, little bit of carrots and jalapeno. Instead of pork, I fried tuna fish and cut it into small pieces and seasoned it with soy sauce and pepper. I really miss this kind of food and so glad i got a chance to prepare it. Yum!
