White Trash Wednesday! Hot Dog & Veggie Stir-fry

A quick thanks to you guys for continuing to forward me some pretty spectacular white trash recipes.  From Becki D’s black ‘n blue pancakes to Amy’s fire pies, you guys do not disappoint.

And this week’s white trash recipe is no different. Thanks to my good friend Lindsey (sadly, no blog to link up, but she was the original guest blogger at YAWYEOR) for shooting the following email to me last night:

“Please make this.  It’s educational too…I had no idea what “julienne” meant.” 

She’s a funny one alright. You’ll understand in a second.

So I clicked on the link and it lead me to this glorious recipe:

Hot Dog & Veggie Stir -fry*

  • 4 to 6 hotdogs or 1 can of SPAM or 8-ounces of baloney
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 4 large carrots
  • 2 or 3 stalks celery
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Garlic Powder, Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Cooked Rice

“When you prepare this recipe, you may use whichever meat you have available. They all taste good in this recipe. Try to cut the meat into narrow “match-stick” sized pieces. This shape is called julliene. I cut the hotdogs by slitting them long-ways into 4 to 8 long “worms”. Then I quarter them short-ways to get a lot of pretty, skinny julliened hotdogs. Baloney can be stacked after removing the red plastic, and then cut into long skinny strips. Cut the Baloney in half, or thirds the other way and you will have pretty pieces. The SPAM is easy to cut and stack and slice into slivers.

The carrots are cut into narrow slices and then each slice is cut in half. The celery is cut into thin slices and the onion is halved and then sliced into thin half-moons. After preparing the vegetables and meat set it all aside.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the vegetables. Stir-fry the veggies for at least 5 minutes, or until the onions begin to turn tender. Add the hot dogs or other meat. Cook and stir until the meat browns slightly. Season with Garlic, Salt & Pepper to taste. Add about 2 or 3 tablespoons of water to the skillet. Stir quickly until the water evaporates. There, you are done. Serve the stir-fry over cooked rice. Makes 4 servings.
The spiciness of the meat, the sweetness of the carrots, the subtle bitterness of the celery and the piquancy of the onions make this dish quite good.

VARIATION: If desired you can add 2 or 3 cups of finely sliced cabbage in addition to the other vegetables. Add them to the dish along with the other veggies.

Homemade bean sprouts are also a nice addition. Add them at the end, right before servings. Bean sprouts are best if they aren’t overcooked.”

Happy hump day everybody!

  1. I had to mention that this recipe made me smile. :D

  2. I am determined to use the word “piquancy” in a sentence today. Brilliant!

  3. What are all those vegetables doing in a WTW post? ;)

  4. Hotdogs belong on a bun. Or in a blanket.

  5. This is so wrong that I can not comment.

  6. rhooby

    this looks just awful. so WT…… it’s a good thing you don’t have “tasters.”

  7. I can’t believe it’s WTW already!! A popular Filipino breakfast (something I grew up with) is hotdogs or SPAM, fried egg and fried rice. So white trashy.

  8. Amy

    Hot dog worms?! Seriously! I don’t care if it’s white trashy, don’t use the word worms to describe anything in a recipe!
    And “piquancy” – classic!

  9. Neighbor

    SPAM all the way. Add some soy, some sesame oil, and you might as well be in Maui (or at least Billy Bob’s Tiki Hut…)

  10. Mrs. Neighbor

    Yes, Neighbor does make it with SPAM. Thinks its fancy by adding sesame oil… but its still just SPAM. Its the asian’s version of being white trash.

    • Mrs. Neighbor- I’m on the floor dying right now! Poor Mr. Neighbor. Although, my pal Perpetually Peeved has mentioned that Spam Fried Rice is actually pretty decent stuff. And now Jun says it’s good too. I’m thinking Mr. Neighbor needs to make up a batch so I can test it out for myself. And then photograph it. And then blog about it.
      Just sayin’.

    I forgot to mention that this recipe was in the “Florescent Foods” section of her website. Therefore, her website is lacking in piquancy. For some reason, it doesn’t have the same effect when I use it.

  14. I’ve always wanted to have a White Trash Party, where everyone brings the trashiest food and beverage they can find. Maybe cocktail wieners and Boones…..or Box of wine and spray cheese. Everyone could dress trashy too….lots of man tanks and clear heels. Awesome!!!

    I recently attended a wedding and one of the appetizers was “A la pretzel wrapped in deli meat”
