Leftover Stir Fry

Hey! Remember me?? I said I was back, then I pretty much disappeared again!

I think I'm just not quite as interested in cooking during the summer. Daylight Savings Time makes my schedule all wonky... being light later... YUCK!


This is a leftover from the 4th of July! Yeah... a WHOLE month ago! It's a good thing it's only been sitting in the computer, and not in the fridge!

Remember those awesome Smoked Ribs & Beer Can Chicken?

We had a ton of that leftover. I made two slabs of ribs, a whole chicken, plus burgers and dogs. And there were only 5 of us!

What to do with delicious smoky leftovers?

Jon suggested stir fry. He suggests that often. I like to do it with fresh veggies, so it's a lot of chopping for me. Being in summer lazy mode, I quickly dismissed it as too much work... and well... does smoky meat really 'go' with stir fry??

The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea! Well... not the idea of chopping lots of veggies... but the smoky meat in the stir fry.

So on my way home, I stopped at the store and grabbed a couple bags of frozen stir fry veggies.

Then I started pulling the meat off of the left over ribs.

Yum! Had to be sure to get lots of that salty/spicy/smoky bark!

Also some leftover Beer Can Chicken.

There's usually some kinda Asian noodles hiding in my pantry.

Saute up some onions & garlic in a little chile oil.

Throw in the shredded meat.


Add both kinds of Stir Fry Veggies plus some Asian sauces...
(I probably used soy sauce, oyster sauce & fish sauce)

Some cooked Asian noodles...


Top with some sesame seeds and it's dinner time!

Jon usually comes up with some pretty good dinner ideas... I just need to listen more often!
