Oriental Style Meat Balls


Make your meatballs from your recipe

2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp honey
1 1/2 tbsp Oyster sauce (sub Hoisin)
1 1/2 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
1/2 tsp normal ground black pepper

Stir Fry
2 tbsp  canola oil
1 garlic clove , finely minced
1/2 onion , peeled and sliced
 lb ground beef / make meatballs


Mix the Sauce ingredients in a bowl.
Heat the oil in a wok or large heavy based skillet over high heat until it is smoking.
Add the onion and garlic and cook for 1 minute or until the onion becomes translucent. Keep it moving so the garlic doesn't burn.

Add the beef and stir fry for 1 minute until just cooked to your liking, then remove into bowl.
Turn the heat down to medium high, pour in Sauce - it will start simmering very quickly! Let it cook for 1 minute or so until it becomes syrupy - the bubbles will be larger and caramel colour.
Add the beef and onion back into the wok, along with any juices pooled on the plate. Toss in the sauce until just warmed through - 1 minute at most. Don't overcook the beef - that would be tragic!
Serve immediately with rice.

Pop Eye's Chicken Recipe


3 pounds Chicken, Cut up into pieces

Season chicken with
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
1/2-1 teaspoon Paprika
And set a side for 15 minutes

For the Brine:
1 large egg
2 cups Buttermilk
1/ 4 cup  Red Hot Sauce, optional
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2-1 teaspoon Paprika

For Breading:

2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
1/2-1 teaspoon Paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 

Canola or Vegetable Oil, For frying


Place seasoned chicken pieces in a large casserole pan. Mix buttermilk and red hot sauce, if using, with salt and pepper in a large measuring cup, and then pour buttermilk mixture over top of the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for at least 24 hours, preferably overnight for about 8 hours.

Remove from refrigerator about 20 to 30 minutes before frying. 

Mix the flour, salt,pepper, paprika, in a large bowl. Set aside.
Preheat oil for frying. You can use a deep fryer, or a large deep pan filled halfway up with oil. I typically use 2 large, deep frying pans for one batch so it all finishes at the same time and my pans won't be over-crowded. Bring the oil to a bubble over medium heat.
Start taking the pieces of chicken out of the buttermilk and then dunk each one in the flour mixture, making sure to coat on each side.Place on a cooking rack for 20 minutes
Place each piece carefully in the pan of oil. Repeat until all the chicken is in your pans. You can then discard any remaining buttermilk and flour mixture.
Cook the chicken for about 15 minutes.
