Ginger Soy Pork

Isn’t it fun to run into a grocery store with absolutely nothing in mind?  I made the first step and bought a menu planning calendar but it’s blank.  Empty.  Not one idea written down for the week.  Oh well – guess I’ll start planning next week right?

This blog is dedicated to something with pork in it because it was on sale!  Nothing better than good organic farm raised meat that is on sale.  I’ve been brain storming all day thinking of what is in my cabinets that would pare well with some kind of pork.

You will love this – SO easy and incredibly tasty.  There are so many ways to prepare this pork!  I’ll work on the different ways you can serve this.  It’s definitely something that can be refrigerated and served another way the next day.  Leftovers!  YUM!

Soy, ginger and star anise – have you had anything made with star anise?  If you like Chinese food, then I’m sure you’ve eaten something with it!  It’s the spice that looks like a star – literally…. as star.  In this dish, you just throw a few pods in and let the pork simmer.  If you love soy…. ginger…. good food…. and fall apart tender pork, then you HAVE to try this.  You will not be disappointed.
