With six children all in school, and an infant, our home was past turbulent, so fast cooking pan fried food was a go-to for my dad.He’d just cook the chicken with a lot of soy sauce, at that point toss in whatever he had filling in his late spring garden… generally a wealth of chime peppers and new basil. He’d serve his pan fried food over rice and top with peanuts. My father kept his pan fried food unbelievably basic, brimming with vegetables, and a touch on the pungent side. I recall it being not terrible, but not great either great, obviously, I was only a child.
Thinking back Dad’s most likely might have utilized somewhat more flavor and a touch more tone. Yet, we couldn’t have cared less, we as a whole suspected his sautéed food was the bomb.
