This week I'm been assigned to the last shift of the day. What this means is, by late morning, I have to have a microwaveable meal prepared for my husband to heat and eat. What fits the bill for this type of meal is a stir fry which includes your protein and veggies. The only other thing I have to make is a pot of white rice.
For this meal, I turned to a favorite that I found in a weekly flyer that Wegmans use to send out when they first opened their store in Ocean.
The recipe is Stir Fry Pork with Snow Peas in Citrus Soy Sauce. It has an active time of 20 minutes with an overall time of 30 minutes from start to finish. I prepped my pork early in the morning. Around lunch time, I began by starting the water for the white rice. Next, I began trimming, chopping and dicing the vegetables. By the time the stir fry was done, so was the rice.
If you don't have a Wegmans near you, I found several recipes for citrus soy sauce online, but they don't come close to the ingredients that Wegmans lists. To give you a guideline in selecting the one closest to the Wegmans Citrus Soy Sauce, theirs contains water, orange juice concentrate, canola oil, salt, honey, cornstarch, extra virgin olive oil, sugar, garlic, roasted garlic, black pepper, lemon and lime juice. If you feel adventurous, use an online recipe and tweak using some of the ingredients above. Start out with minimal quantities until you achieve a taste you like. My suggestion, write down your additions on the printout of the recipe you chose.
