This Tuna Steak Ala Pobre, Buttered Veggies, and Chinese Sausage Fried Rice is a complete meal to make use of excess ingredients from other dishes I cooked over the week.
Let’s start with the Chinese Sausage Fried Rice – I cooked Pancit Canton/Bihon to make use of the excess noodles and in turn, I had extra chinese sausage. What’s the best way to make use of extra chinese sausage? Turn it into a super tasty fried rice of course! And this pairs best with everything! You can even add scrambled egg into your fried rice and you can eat it just like that — a complete meal by itself.
Then the Buttered Veggies – these are the vegetables I have in the crisper which I have to make use of or else they’re going to waste soon. Since we are going for a no food waste goal, I just cooked it in butter and salt and tadah! we have a yummy side dish.
The Tuna Steak Ala Pobre? Well, peantubutter
This is the story of how this meal came together.
I’m feeling a bit under the weather. Maybe because I’m stressed or just plain tired.
I hope you’re feeling so much better than me and that everything is going well on your side of the internet.
Happy start of a new week.
