We’re kind of obsessed with comfort food right now, with the seasons changing and the weather getting chilly. That means, of course, finding ways to indulge without breaking the piggy bank – or the calorie budget. Re-purposing leftovers is one of the smartest ways to eat like royalty on a shoestring budget, and the secret to avoiding food waste!
Using the leftover sauce created from roasting the chashu pork for ramen the other week, I coated wings that had been first par-boiled then baked a la the crack wings recipe from last month. Combining the method of that meal with the flavors of another, so utilizing leftovers in a new way, made for a hearty, tasty dinner that we enjoyed with some ginger-garlic steamed brown rice. So satisfying, and what an easy weeknight dinner!
