I am so excited to share this beef pepper rice recipe with you guys now that I got my hubby’s two thumbs up! Have you had beef pepper rice from Pepper Lunch? I tried it once and was hooked! The dish is so flavourful and it’s so fun “cooking” the dish at the table. This beef pepper rice recipe is my take on the one from Pepper Lunch. It’s easy to make and the garlic soy sauce gives it an extra punch of flavour. Let me know if you’ve tried this recipe in the comments below or on Instagram #jansfoodsteps.
Let’s talk about pork belly. Have you cooked with this ingredient? If not, you’re not alone. I always think pork belly is super fatty because of the skin and layers of fat. That’s one of the main reason why I avoided this ingredient. However, I realized that if you look hard enough, you could get a piece of pork belly that has a higher meat to fat ratio! And that’s what I use to make this recipe. This 7-ingredient dish is really easy to put together so it’s perfect for weeknight dinners.

This roasted buttermilk chicken thighs recipe is probably the easiest chicken recipe in my recipe book. It’s super easy to make and you should already have most of the ingredients in your pantry. And the best part is that the chicken can be marinated ahead of time, making this a fantastic recipe for meal planning on Sundays!
Prior to this curry recipe, the only curry I’d make is the Japanese curry from a box. Yes, A BOX! Glico’s curry is so convenient and yummy! However, I wanted to make curry from scratch. So I started off with this easy Thai Yellow Coconut Curry with Mango recipe from Minimalist Baker. Since Mr. Chau is a carnivore, I added chicken breast to the recipe and made a few tweaks so it’s not too spicy for me. I even tried making it with tofu instead of chicken and apples instead of mango. It tasted just as good! So go ahead and explore other protein and fruit combinations!
