Chinese-Hawaiian [Recycled] Dish

I consider myself as the Left-Over Diva because I love to recreate dish out of left-over food. I am frugal in the aspect. I hate wasting food and I hate eating left-over at the same time. So recycling left-over food is the best way to come up with new dish out of the old [but not necessarily spoiled dish].

I had 2 different left-over dishes that I recycled... ooppps... "recycle food" may not sound too appealing or appetizing but trust me... I couldn't come up with a better term so bear with me. The two dishes that I am talking about are... Chinese spare ribs left-over from our "Friday Nigh is Chinese Night" tradition and the Chicken liver and Tofu in brown sauce left-over that I made the other day.

So here goes. You will need the following:

Left-over dishes [Chinese spare ribs and chicken liver and tofu in brown sauce], minced garlic, chopped onion...

... pineapple chunk...

... olive oil [for sautéing], oyster sauce, onion salt and dried thyme leaves for seasoning.

Procedure: 1. Heat pan and drizzle it with olive oil.

2. Sauté garlic...

3. and onion until transparent in color.

4. Add the left-over Chinese spare ribs.

5. Then add the pineapple chunk.

6. Season with onion salt.

7. Add the left-over chicken liver and tofu in brown sauce.

8. Pour pineapple chuck juice.

9. Add oyster sauce.

10. Season with dried thyme leaves.

11. Simmer until half of the liquid evaporates and sauce thickens.

12. Serve hot [with steamed jasmine rice]. 

And there is your new dish out of the old ones. Enjoy a healthy meal.

Ooh that looks really yummy! Oh I love recreating left-over food too.
With the kind of economy we have, it's a mortal sin to waste food.LOL!

Ruthi, not only can't I afford to waste food, but I find it downright sinful to do so. I like the looks of your creation.

haha, i did not know you are very creative with foods, would be glad to have a cookfest with you someday, one of the reasons i really love and have to go hiking is because i have to burn all the foods I ate because I love to cook and eat :)

PS....did not know chicken liver and tofu can go together, thanks for the tip :)
