Must Haves and Curry for the Weekend

Five Spice Seared Filet with Vegetable Stir Fry

No matter how busy you are, there’s always time for a stir fry. So while I spent the last month a bit on the busy side, we’ve been eating a ton of the stuff. But last night I had a craving for a restaurant style meal with some real deal flavor. Making a stop at Kalustyans on the way home I picked up some must haves if you want to come close to replicating the distinct and bold flavors of asian cuisine. Ginger, hoisin, and siracha only take you so far, but Shaoxing style cooking wine, chinese five spice, and sichuan peppercorns are three ingredients that really transform an otherwise simple dish.

And after an awesome dinner and waking up to a perfect Fall day, I’m in the mood for some curry. But what the hell type should I put together…I’ll let you choose. Enjoy the weekend!
