I can't believe I like this dish as much as I do. I was surprised. This is a variation of a rather bland scrambled egg mix that I found on the net but turning it onto an egg foo yung is really special. Add your own favorite things but this is a good start. If you add water chestnuts, ham, shrimp, pork, whatever- then you will have to adjust the cooking time. This is a basic recipe- make it your own. But an easy recipe to amend- as soon as the egg is set- then it is done! I really love this and it is so good for a family on a budget or a bachelor short on time. If you want a terrific egg foo yung sauce then try this one Recipe#45270 .
Chinese fried rice that tastes just like in the Chinese restaurants. I have tried many recipes and was never able to make it taste like in the restaurants until I met someone who was a chef in a Chinese restaurant and let me in on the secrets.
I wanted to make Lemon Chicken like the Chinese restaurants have. After trying many recipes, I found one that was OK. I played with the recipe and tweeked it to my liking...a Lemon Sauce that is lemony with a good balance of sweet. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
I make this with Shanghai Bok Choy, a smaller Bok Choy than the regular one with light green ribs rather than the white ribs. If you have Bok Choy in a Chinese restaurant, they tend to slice it lengthways and cook the whole thing at once. I decided to cook the ribs and leaves separately and accidentally came up with this recipe because I was distracted after adding the ribs. I found that by overcooking the ribs slightly, they take on an almost buttery flavour, a nice contrast to the freshness of the leaves.
I make this with Easy Prep Vegetable Stock (Recipe #247153).
One serving of this soup contains quite a lot of protein and is suitable for South Beach or Sure Slim weight loss programmes.
We LOVE Chinese food and General Tso's has long been a favorite. However the high fat content of the regular version in a restaurant isn't always a great option.
This is a moderately spicy version of the recipe. Reduce the ginger, garlic, scallions or red pepper flakes as your tastes desire. You can also substitute higher calorie options, such as regular sugar for the Splenda, or vegetable oil instead of Pam cooking spray.
I have been making this for years and it is my husband's favorite seasoning! Great over brown rice! Gomashio is a macrobiotic seasoning and is said to de-acidify the blood. Eating too much acidic foods is said to cause many diseases. Gomashio is said to strengthen digestion and improve energy immediately. It is claimed to be healing for all blood related diseases, including diabetes and cancer. I don't know too much about that, but it is delicious and we eat it all the time! I find the unhulled sesame seeds at the health food store.
People always ask why my rice comes out perfectly, even though I don't use a rice cooker. Siu Siu Korzilius, my Chinese cooking teacher, taught me that the secret to flaky rice is in the washing. Rice must always be washed before it's cooked to remove the excess starch which keeps it from being sticky. For brown rice, follow these same instructions but add more water (to several inches over the rice) and cook three times as long.
