Rosa's Cucumber Stir-Fry

Rosa is our sister-in-law.  She is originally from Cambodia and makes a lot of really delicious Asian food, but this is the recipe that reminds me of her the most.  It is easy to make, has a light, fresh taste and looks so pretty with the green cucumbers! 

Rosa's Cucumber Stir-Fry

2 Tbsp oil
sugar (just a pinch or two-probably more like two)
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 onion, chopped
2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced (or cubed, or whatever you like)
salt and pepper to taste
3-4 Tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 c. water
1 large cucumber, thinly sliced

Heat the oil and sugar in a large frying pan on medium heat.  Add the onions and garlic and stir it all until it is brown.  Toss in the sliced chicken and cook it until it is no longer pink in the center.  Put a little salt and pepper on it, then add the oyster sauce and water and turn down the heat a little.  Stir in the cucumbers and let it cook for 5 minutes, or until the cucumbers are slightly tender.  Serve it over rice.

  1. I'm glad that you put this on. I think I started to add this recipe a long time ago and never finished it. Or maybe that was you...
