Moving from Japan to Hawaii was a big change. The best part is, while we are still able to find many Japanese products and ingredients, we now have access to all kind of Hawaiian delicacies. One day, while browsing the shelves in a supermarket, we decided to buy this Hawaiian Pride BBQ sauce to spice up our soy meat patties. It was a decision we do not regret!
This dish consists of 3 parts: the Hawaiian BBQ meat, the roasted veggies, and the pho noodles. They are prepared separately, and you can substitute each with different items if desired (e.g. you may prefer rice instead of noodles)
- Hawaiian BBQ Meat
- Roasted Veggies
- 2 Bell Peppers (Combination of 1 Green, and 1 Yellow,Red, or Orange) chopped in 1″ sq pieces
- 3 Garlic cloves, heads & butts chopped off, lightly smashed (leave the peel on)
- 1 Onion, chopped in 1″ sq pieces
- 1/4 c Extra Virgin Olive oil
- 1 Tbsp Salt
- Pho Rice Noddles
- One bag of Pho Rice Noodles
Morning Star is our favorite brand when it comes to vegetarian meat. They have everything from corn dogs to bacon. For this recipe we will use the Sausage Patties. Simply toast them in your toaster oven (or regular oven) for about 15 minutes at 400oF. Immediately take out and let them cool. After they are cool, slice them in half on the sides so you have 2 circular, half-thick patties. Then cut the each piece in to six pieces. This way you will end up with 12 slices. Your meat is ready to be marinated. The BBQ sauce recipe calls for more meat, because fake meat absorbs juices more readily, we altered the proportions for this recipe. Mix the BBQ sauce with the meat, and leave it for at least half an hour. The longer you leave it, the better is gets marinated and less hot it tastes. Ignore the recipe instructions on the seasoning packet to grill the meat.
