Stuffed green tomatoes

This is an embellished version of a dish my mother makes.  She stuffs red tomatoes with ground beef, onion, S&P, Oyster sauce, and garlic.  Served with white rice and nuoc mam.

I stuffed green tomatoes (for the firmness) with ground chicken thigh, dried red peppers (like meatballs), garlic, Oyster sauce (they have this at Central Market now), and S&P.  Fried and serve with white rice and nuoc mam.

In the future, I would fry then pop them into the oven to finish it off.  To ensure cooked chicken, I had to quarter them.  Shame on me.  I’ve been brained washed by health code law.

Nuoc mam is a sauce/dressing in most every Vietnamese dish.  It entails fish sauce, garlic, lime, sugar, and  red chili pepper.  A good wife can get all of that to float on the top of the bowl.

Nuoc mam with anything is my version of white gravy on chicken fried steak.
