Kathy's Main-Course - Ma-Po's Bean Curd With Pork
January 18, 2015
"Kathy is my sister. She & her DH have lived & spent a lot of time in the orient. He was raised there as his Dad was a marine biologist doing research for the US Navy in Taiwan. I asked her to give me a selection of her favorite recipes for an oriental meal & this is the main-course she picked. She further described it as the "best dish I make". As with her other recipes, her source was her "Wei-Chuan Cookbook" by Huang Su Huei. Enjoy!"
