In Our Lunch Box – Pork Patties and Mushrooms

Last Wednesday, my kids and hub took a break from chicken and had pork patties with mushroom.

The patties (made of ground pork, minced onions, minced carrots, eggs, and flour… salt and pepper of course…) are browned in a little bit of canola, and then set aside to drain. Sauce is prepared by sauteing garlic, onions and mushrooms in butter; soy sauce is used to season and make the sauce brown. I use cornstarch to thicken the sauce.

My kids aren’t picky eaters now (except for a few of VGood’s episodic attacks), but they used to be in the younger years. Nate doesn’t seem to show any signs of being a picky eater, hehe. But this one trick I share with you: ground meat are a great way of disguising veggies into your kids’ meals. That way, the kids don’t even know there are veggies in there. Or if they do, it’s usually too late (bwahahaha!)
