Feel free to add the basic recipe to your rotation with anything calling from your fridge. It's a great way to use up leftover rice and veggies—whatever you have on hand.


  • ½ cup low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chile paste
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 6 cups savoy cabbage, thinly sliced
  • sea salt, to taste
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice, break up any chunks
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups cooked shrimp or shredded meat
  • 4 cups cooked bok choy, greens or mushrooms
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed (optional)
  • ¼ cup cilantro, roughly torn


  • Whisk broth, water, oyster sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, chile paste and cornstarch together in small bowl, and set aside.
  • Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a large wok or nonstick skillet over high heat. Add cabbage and a pinch of salt, and saute for 5 minutes, until wilted and charred. Remove to a plate. Swirl in remaining 1-1/2 tablespoons oil, and saute onion for 3 minutes, until softened. Add garlic, and cook another 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add rice, and stir-fry 2 minutes, until softened and separated. Push rice to one side of pan, and pour in egg. Let egg set for 30 seconds, and then chop coarsely with spatula.
  • Stir in meat, veggies, cabbage and peas, and toss everything together to combine. Give sauce a stir to mix, and pour into pan. Toss rice to coat. Cook 5 minutes longer, or until heated through. Spoon onto serving dish or into bowls. Sprinkle cilantro over top, and season to taste with additional soy sauce.

Lemon-Herb Lamb Chops

These lamb chops remind me of my time on Corfu. After we’d close the restaurant late at night, we’d grill up a batch and set them in the middle of the table for everyone to nibble on in between stories or songs.
