I usually alternate at home but never even get asked when I order at a bar. Until the other night at Lucca in the North End. Decent selections of bourbons (I let the bartender pick and ended up with Buffalo Trace). But I didn't get a cherry!
The Broccolini stays perfectly al dente while picking up a nice bit of sear from the hot pan. Fish sauce and sambal oelek (ground fresh chile paste, available in the international aisle) give this side a Vietnamese profile.
Pork tenderloin is ideal in a stir-fry because it cooks so quickly and stays tender and juicy. Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple combines it with crunchy celery and hot chiles for a dead-simple and deliciously spicy weeknight dinner.
