Karl’s Japanese Coca-Cola Braised Pork

Karl’s Heirloom Carrot and Daikon Ribbon Salad

I decided that I wanted a cool salad to go with my lasagna. Jan really likes carrot salad. Since she had forbidden me to be too creative with the lasagna I decided that would express myself on this dish.

Karl’s Spicy Giant Bamboo and Daikon Stir-fry

I needed a vegetable side dish to go with my twice-cooked pork. I wanted something with spice, color and crunch. I had some daikon radish, red bell pepper and green onions left over from another meal that would add the color. I only needed some chili garlic sauce to add the spice and some giant bamboo for the crunch.
