Tasty Thai

First post! yay!
I know the title of this blog is lame. Give it time, we'll come up with something more witty. Anyways here is a blog of our fun food creations! hope you enjoy!

Starting off, here is a nice three course Thai dish that I put together. Enjoy!

Appetizer: Chicken Satay


Chicken Kabob Ingredients















  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • juice from 1/2 lime

In a bowl add the vegetable oil, sesame oil, and lime juice. Mix it up.









Cut the chicken into nice little cubes. Add those to the bowl, mix it up, cover and chill in the fridge for an hour.













While that is chilling, put your skewers into some water so they don’t burn when you cook them.


1 hour later

Start your Satay sauce


Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 green chili
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ cup crunch peanut butter
  • 6-8 tbsp of water
  • ½ lime juice

Cut up your onion, chili, and garlic










Put your oil in a skillet over low heat. Throw in your chopped up veggies and sauté til soft.

Add your peanut butter, water, and lime juice and let simmer til the peanut butter is nice and soft and dip consistency.













If you need to, add more water. I started with 6 tbsp and then added 2 more.

While that is simmering drain your chicken cubes and put them on the skewers.


















Put under a broiler for about 10 minutes turning frequently.

When cooked through take out and serve with warm dip. YUM!


















Main Dish: Pork w/ Green Beans


Ingredients:














  • 2tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 shallots
  • 8oz pork fillet

  • 4 tbsp chili sauce
  • 4 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 8 oz green beans
  • noodles to serve it on (optional)I am using Udon noodles

Chop up shallots, garlic, and pork.









Put oil in pan on medium low heat. Add shallots, garlic, pork, and galangal. Fry til the pork is nice and brown.

Add chicken stock, chili sauce, and peanut butter. Stir until peanut butter is nice and smooth.










Add green beans simmer for a bit. While this is simmering get your noodles going.













Serve!















Dessert: Peanut Butter Banana Crepes & Green Mint Chai

  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter


Combine flour, sugar, and eggs in a bowl.










Slowly add milk to make a smooth batter. Grate your lemon and stir in the rind.













Set the batter aside for a few minutes while we make the filling.

Put the peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for a few seconds til melty. Stir in juice of lemon and corn syrup.













Chop up the three bananas and add them to the mixture. Stir it up so the bananas are nice and coated.













Before we make the crepes let’s get the tea ready. Put tea in pot and water on stove to boil. Yay.


















Heat up pan and throw some butter on there. Once nice and hot pour some crepe batter in the pan swirl it around so it covers the whole pan and let cook. Flip let cook for a few more seconds.

Wow! This is excellent! Your photodocumentation is truly superb. You have ingredient photos, process shots... everything.

My favorite part of this post is the photo of the raw cubed chicken in a bowl with a fork, as though you could pop a few cubes in your mouth if you're just TOO HUNGRY TO WAIT.

And the food looks fantastic.
