I searched and finally found this recipe on the internet. It is a copycat of the Bourbon Chicken sold in Chinese carry-outs in my hometown. This recipe is so good that my sons gobble it up leaving me just a spoonful. Their excuse was they thought I had eaten. Editor's Note: Named Bourbon Chicken because it was supposedly created by a Chinese cook who worked in a restaurant on Bourbon Street.
Tired of using ground beef the same old way? Try this spicy dish! Feel free to double the sauce if you like it really saucy! Update: the hoisin sauce is quite sweet, so you might start off with just a little and work your way up!
Adapted from Martin Yan's Chinese Cooking for Dummies. This is my favorite stir-fry sauce. It makes enough for two meals. Having extra on hand makes for a quick meal. My son will actually eat vegetables he can dip in the sauce! WARNING about the amount of soy sauce. When I used Kikkoman soy sauce, I found this sauce far too salty. I now use Angostura, which is much lower in salt. When adding soy sauce, start with less than half the amount and slowly add more to taste. Using vegetable broth makes this vegetarian. Yield: 1 3/4 cups (couldn't get that amount entered)
These pot stickers are 100% better than any you can buy and well worth the extra effort. I like to make them and then freeze them so all you have to do is the final steps just before you serve them. I make them every Christmas to have as a quick appetizer. One review commented that she had trouble with them sticking together when she defrosted them - I have not had this happen however to be sure it doesn't happen to you defrost them separated. I have also fried them directly from the freezer. They only take a few seconds more to cook.
Recipe from AussieChef at the Fine Cooking board... thanks Aussie! This is a great summer salad, makes an excellent side dish for a picnic, or top with grilled chicken for a simple and delicious main course.
This recipe makes perfect rice every time, simply because the temptation to stir isn't there. This foolproof rice goes well with roasted chicken or broiled fish. I sometimes like to add a 1/2 cup of shredded carrots in addition to the onion to give it a flash of color.
I found this on a website and tweaked it, after having this in several restaraunts while living overseas. I cannot find it anyplace stateside so this is the best interpretation of Chili shrimp I could find.
This a really terrific filling for those Asian steamed dumplings. The recipe was given to me by a good friend who is a chef at Benihana. You can use ground pork, ground shrimp, or ground turkey with great success. I have posted the recipe using ground pork because that is the typical mixture most people are accustomed to... but shrimp is a great indulgence and ground turkey is what I usually use and I love it.
This recipe is an adaptation from a basic soy sauce chicken recipe from the internet and consultation with my grandma. I can eat this everyday! You can use skinless, boneless chicken parts, but the taste won't be the same.
I fell in love with this dish at my local Chinese Buffet several years ago, but no sooner than I discovered it, it disappeared from the selection--and it was never on the takeout menu. When I inquired about it, they didn't understand what I was talking about. I spent years searching high and low for a recipe. The sauce at first tastes sweet, but then it turns hot...so, so good. I had to have that magic formula..I finally found it! Sweet and spicy fans--this is to die for!
UPDATE: I made this again and I wanted a little more fire to it. I added About a tbs or so of "chili garlic sauce" it comes in a little red jar with a green top and has a picture of a rooster on the front, its made by "huyfong foods" and it's in the asian section. This really made the dish especially good! It added not just heat but some really good flavor. I'll be making it this way from now on!
Quick and easy dish, and it's delicious! It's important to use mirin as sherry/other wine does not give the authentic taste of shogayaki. Serve it with steamed cabbage/other vegetables and japanese rice for a yummy meal! You can substitute pork with sliced beef too.
So easy to make, only 4 ingredients... it's the super-ultimate party dish! Just a few minutes in the microwave with will make everything gooey and hot...so easy to make. This is so simple to put together and so good, and takes less than 10 minutes to throw together and heat in the microwave! You will be making this every weekend! Prep time includes microwaving time. Feel free to throw on other ingredients like onions and chopped tomatoes after cooking. Got lots of people to serve?... then make up two plates or three or four!
This has to be just about my favourite Indian dish to make, and I make it a lot! It's also one of the few recipes that I make exactly as written! I sometimes vary the ingredients by substituting the potatoes with carrots and sweet potatoes (but then of course it's not Rasadar aloo anymore!), or by adding extra tomatoes. You may wish to use less oil, but the spice mix is perfect (and I never change it). If you've never used asafoetida before, don't be put off by the slightly strange smell; the results are worth it. This recipe comes from "The Complete Indian Cookbook", edited by Meera Budhwar and I'm posting the ingredients specified. You can easily scale the quantities up but I think this serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a side dish.
The right name for this appetizer is Har Gow. This can also be part of a Dim Sum Brunch.For a Dim Sum Brunch you would usually serve about 8-10 dishes different dishes, depending on the appetites of your guests. This recipe can be frozen and when you wish to serve it take it frozen and steam them over very high heat. I prefer to freeze them unsteamed. These are tasty!
