Pork Takeout Fake-Out

This Pork Takeout Fake-Out recipe came about as the result of needing to use up vegetables we had in the refrigerator and my mom’s desire to have Chinese food Friday night.

My parents were scheduled to visit this past weekend. So, Thursday evening of last week, I took two packages of thinly sliced pork out of our freezer so I could cook it on Friday. I didn’t have a plan for that pork, but I was tired. I told myself “I’ll figure it out later” and went to bed.

Friday was a busy day with my parents, and soon enough it was dinner time. My mom suggested we just get Chinese food, but I had defrosted pork! Plus, we had a bunch of veggies in our refrigerator that needed to be eaten soon. So, I quickly formulated a plan for some “takeout fakeout” and got to work. My parents loved it. I did, too.

Pan Fried Cod with Asian Glaze

Asian Glaze Cod

Sorry this week’s post is somewhat short on dialogue (or you’re welcome to those who just want the recipe!).  Things are a bit crazy on our end, but we hope to get back to sanity somewhat soon.  We’ve been preparing and organizing for the upcoming P3! Paleo, Polyface, PorkFest!  There are lots of giveaways going on, so you’ll want to check it out.  If you’re in the MD/DC/VA area, you should come!  We’re super grateful to be sponsored by none other than Polyface Farms, and we hope we do them proud.  But that’s bacon, and this is cod…

Cod is a fish that we hadn’t been very familiar with, but after conquering fritters we decided it was something we would like to have more often.  Especially when it goes on sale wild-caught at Costco.  This is a pan fried/poached rendition with a tasty glaze.
