If you like Chinese dumplings, these vegetarian pot stickers will blow your mind!! They are very easy to make (contrary to what people may think) and dumpling skins are available even in Western supermarket now. This recipe should use up one package of round dumpling skin and enough to serve a big crowd as appetizers. You can make these dumplings way ahead of time and defrost and pan-fry them just before serving. A recipe by Ming Tsai.
A hot, spicy barbecue chicken adapted from Ming Tsai. This is a recipe that you need to start the night before with the marinade. The Sambal Olek is a ground chili paste and gives it the zing. I buy the brand with the red rooster on the label with the green lid. Reduce the quantity if you want it less spicy, but it does mellow overnight. This also adapts well for a delicious chicken wing appetizer.
