Pork, chopped

Barbecue pork, Asian Food Center

Rotisserie chicken is usually my go-to protein for easy dinners. Recently, though, I rediscovered the barbecue pork at Asian Food Center. For $6.99 a pound, they’ll chop the darkly caramelized meat into bite-size pieces with a huge cleaver. Then all you have to do is throw it into fried rice or wrap it in tortillas with sautéed veg. It’s also a great match for a grain salad as a take-out dinner while you watch soccer practice. While you’re at the store, pick up some mooncakes to celebrate impending autumn. 1301 Broadway, (916) 448-4397.
