If you’re like me, when you get home from work the last thing you want to do is prepare a complicated meal. Quick, easy, fresh. That’s always the goal. How do you make your weeknight easy?
I find that buying a value pack of meat and preparing it earlier in the week makes it easier for me on those rushed nights. For example, a value pack of chicken could be broken up into three meals: diced chicken for Fettuccini Alfredo, sliced chicken for chicken with snow peas, and marinated chicken for BBQ chicken.
Also, dicing and slicing the vegetables in advance makes it easier for those rushed preparations.
Last week, I bought a little over 2 pounds of ground pork from the Chinese market. I marinated (Marinated Pork for Stir Fry) it and I made 4 delicious meals with it. Less meat, more vegetables, a win all around. Here are the dishes I made with the 2.3 lbs of pork (all served at least 4 people):
- Family Style Asian Lo Mein Recipe
- Rice Cake Noodles with Chinese Greens & Pork Recipe
- Tofu with 5-spice Pork Recipe
- Vivi’s Fried Rice Noodle Recipe
What are your favorite ways to prepare for your busy week?
