A week ago, my brother-in-law made a couple of interesting Chinese dishes.
One of them utilized some barbecue pork that I had bought earlier from the Chinese supermarket. He combined it with Suan Tai, or garlic stems, stir-frying them together. The combination of the two was quite good.
The second of the two dishes, he used winter melon, sometimes called east melon, he combined this with pork ribs, and added some red dates and some star anise for flavour. This was also quite an interesting combination, and also tasted good. Winter melon is more like a squash than a melon, it's normally sold in thick slices.
