That version is more like Moo Shu Lu (gravy style) and pretty common at Americanized Chinese restaurants too. Traditional style is pretty much dry with scrambled eggs. Ive never stepped foot in a Panda Express. I do love some Americanized versions of Asian food though. I adore good hot braised chicken or pork. When its made right hot and sour soup is the bomb when you have a cold.

 

The real classic Chinese "taco" is roast duck with the little steamed flat buns. Ive had them with red cooked pork also at the "authentic" places in town. Man do i feel sorry for you guys that dont have restaurants that serve REAL Chinese dishes.

Au contraire mon frère! We here in Florida are lucky enough to have some stand alone Panda Expresses. (No I haven't been to one either lol)

Had a Taco Mi Casa taco for lunch yesterday. Hector told me that the chicken chipotle was good today so I had one. He was running low on fresh jalapeños, he grows his own, so he grew in a whole pickled one to make up for it. It was super tasty and only $2.50

We had carne guisada tonight. Flour tillas, Mexican cheese, fresh jalapeños and HBD sauce make for a simple tasty taco.

That looks chingon!

 

But it tempts me to dump a 2 pound bag of shredded sharp cheddar scheeze in the stew at the end.

 

In a bowl topped with avocado creme splooge.

 

With a really big spoon.

 

The tortillas would live to see another day.

Si senor.

 

It was.

 

The griddle is really fun to cook on.

 

But there's a little mojo involved.

 

After a while you know exactly when to get the protein off the heat.

 

I generally hit it about 80 to 90 percent done.

 

Let the residual heat take care of the rest.

 

Nothing worse than dried out and over cooked.

 

Except maybe...

 

Liver and onions.

 

Plah!

Give it a tan on the big black iron beach.

 

IMG_0568.JPG

 

Throw down some boneless skinless chicken thighs.

 

And throw on some chile magic dust from parts unknown.

 

IMG_0570.JPG

 

For no reason at all.

 

IMG_0572.JPG

 

Now tune in.

 

Turn on.

 

And drop out.

 

And splooge some Kings Hawaiian Lava.

 

Throw in a little green onion.

 

High five yourself on at least trying to eat something green.

Have mercy.

We had jerk pork tacos again tonight. All the Walkerswood goodies were used, paste, marinade and BBQ sauce. Along with HBDs jerk powder and Matouks hot sauce to top it off. The grocery store did not have habaneros to dice into the pineapple pico so I went heavy on the Matouks 🍻

Do pita bread gyros count as tacos??? If so the here is the steak gyros we had tonight. Skirt steak was marinaded in spicy Italian dressing and a little Worcestershire overnight. The bell pepper, jalapeño and onion were marinaded shortly in olive oil and spices. Some pickled pepperoncini, feta cheese, tzatziki sauce, fresh tomato and Matouks hot sauce finish it off.
