Since everyone has their own favorite recipe for wonton soup I am only posting the dumpling recipe but don't just use these for wonton soup these can be cooked in any flavored broth that you wish, or the cooked dumplings may be served on the side with gravy from a stew just make certain that you cook them first in boiling water --- I usually get about 35-40 dumplings, use as many as desired and freeze the rest to use another time, just drop from the frozen state into simmering broth --- I make mine in "nurse's hat" shapes you may make them into whatever shape you like, I also like to add in some cayenne pepper for heat ---these are just as good if not better than any Asian restaurant, they are very easy to make, very addicting and you will be making them all the time!
Plan ahead the salmon will need to marinade for at least 8 hours, this marinade is enough for up to 16 ounces of salmon- you may adjust the fresh garlic and cayenne pepper to taste --- you will LOVE this!
I make this often it's easy and a great way to use up leftover cooked spaghetti, after you chop the garlic and green onions this takes only about 5 minutes to make, the amounts listed are really only a guideline you may use any amount of spaghetti and adjust all other ingredients to suit your taste --- I have left the chili flakes as optional you may omit or adjust to heat level, we like spicy so I always use lots! --- make certain to use only cold spaghetti for this, you may use cooked Chinese soba noodles if desired in place of the spaghetti, I like to add in a few teaspoons sesame oil also while cooking, prep time does not include cooking the spaghetti
I have left the crushed chili flakes as optional if you like more heat then add them in ---plan ahead the pork needs to marinade for 8-24 hours, make certain to line your pan with foil for easy clean up ---this is very good!
This is a wonderful stir-fry sauce that I recently developed, if you don't use all the sauce up at one time it may be refrigerated tightly sealed in a glass bottle for another time just make certain to shake it up really well before using as the cornstarch settles to the bottom, I have left the chili sauce as optional if you like some heat then add it it, this is a fairly thick sauce, for a thinner sauce you may reduce the amount of cornstarch slightly --- don't omit the sesame oil it is what makes this sauce, and if you don't have any run out and get some you will never cook Asian again without it!
This method will create a perfect cooked rice --- remember not to stir at anytime while cooking or the rice will stick to the bottom of the pot, and do not cover with a lid until all water is absorbed, for this method use only long grain white rice, please see directions for water amount.
The soy sauce has a slightly dominent flavor to this glaze so if you are not a lover of soy sauce then pass this by, or you may use 1/2 cup soy sauce and 1/4 cup water --- depending on how sweet you want this sauce you may adjust the honey or brown sugar to suit taste, start with stated amounts and add in more if desired ---you may also adjust the chili flakes to suit heat level, if you are in a hurry you could omit browning the chicken firstly --- serve with cooked rice.
The secret to the best Chinese fried rice is onions, garlic and sesame oil, you may add in cooked chicken, beef, pork or shrimp, also you may add in some frozen thawed peas or fresh sauteed or canned mushrooms, whatever you have handy in your fridge! --- for this recipe it is best to use slightly undercooked rice that is more firm that soft the best recipe is the firm option on my recipe#350260 the amount of egg does not matter, if you like lots of egg then use as many eggs as desired, if you like a little heat then add in some cayenne pepper, I most always do you and you will probably need to adjust the soy sauce to your liking --- you will love this rice!
This sauce takes minutes to make and you may reduce the amounts to half if desired but you will will not have a lot of sauce, I have left the cayenne as optional if you like a bit of heat then add it in --- also see my recipe#79469
Although it is not listed in the cheese mixture ingredients you may also add in one slightly beaten egg if desired --- to save some time and to further increase the flavor I strongly suggest to prepare the sauce up to 1-3 days ahead, just warm before using in the recipe, preparing ahead will allow the flavors to "ripen" and intensify you will really notice a difference in flavor if made ahead.
If you are not a garlic-lover then you may omit, I like to add in a pinch or so of cayenne pepper also, for best flavor use a sharp cheddar cheese for this such as Kraft Cracker Barrel Sharp Cheddar Cheese and for a main meal add in 2 cups chopped cooked ham or cooked chicken.
Don't be fooled by the list of ingredients this is not at all hard to make, and may even be better than any take-out you may have had in the past! --- for authenticity of this popular dish the pork must be deep-fryed firstly and this may be done well in advance to save time, adjust the chili flakes to suit heat level my family likes spicy so I use 1 teaspoon or a little more --- serve with cooked white rice.
This is plain and simple but makes a wonderful chili, you may add in other ingredients if desired, my family likes this topped with cheddar cheese and sour cream then served with recipe#105726 --- I strongly suggest to make this 1-3 days ahead the flavors will intensify and ripen, you will really notice a difference in flavor if made ahead --- all amounts may be adjusted to taste.
