Makes 20 Dumplings, or 4 Servings
Fried dumplings have legions of fans, but there is something soulfully satisfying about the simplicity of their boiled cousins. What gives character to these boiled dumplings is the wonderful dipping sauce, seasoned with spicy sesame oil.
From the book The Shun Lee Cookbook by Michael Tong
"The original Sichuan recipe for this dish was for a cold, somewhat chewy appetizer of fried, dried, and shredded beef. It is a far cry from Shun Lee’s Crispy Orange Beef, which was introduced in 1971, and which millions of Americans have since come to love."
The cooking time is a guess. Posting for safekeeping.

"Serve these burgers for the ultimate casual Labor Day BBQ. You'll like the combo of ground chuck and sirloin -- a burger made with chuck alone will be juicy but will lack sirloin's deep flavor, while a burger made with just sirloin will be a bit drier."

This was very tasty! Used chicken breast, the marinade made it very tender. I added chopped green onion along with the ginger also. Next time I make this though I'll add a veggie, snowpeas and onions would be good! This is a quick, easy and tasty meal!
I had originally made a zaar recipe, but then realized I had made a HUGE mistake and it turned out FANTASTIC. The toffee has the best soft crunch. I made it again correctly and it was not as good, so with the mistake I think I can call it my own now??
This recipe is from rasamalaysia.com. It's a food/recipe blog I stumbled upon and it's great food porn. He states in the recipe that this is not exactly authentic but delicious nonetheless. I tried it tonight in bun(Vietnamese cold noodle salad) and it was soooo good! Would be so good on just plain steamed white rice too!
From Cook's Illustrated 'Cover and Bake' cookbook, but I found it on Salt Lake City Desert News website --Sounds good. I know the original recipe calls for from scratch polenta, but this sounds easier.
Not sure about cooking time.
This is from the Williams-Sonoma Cookbook, and it is SOOOOOO good!
*I made this using top sirloin instead of the flank steak. Also to cut some cooking time instead of boiling the broccoli, I microwaved it for 2 minutes in a bowl with a tablespoon of water covered in saran wrap.

OH MAN is this just simple goodness! I didn't expect for this to be as delicious as it is! Splurge a bit on a nice chunk of parm for this recipe. A small piece won't set you back very much at all. DO NOT use the green can!!! I actually substituted cucumber for the zucchini. So easy and tasty!
By far the best tasting chili I've ever had! Easy to make and easy on the wallet. Sometimes I only add the one pound of ground beef and a extra can of beans to replace the sausage. And of course serve it with cornbread!
Tip: If you don't like the acidy flavor/effect the canned tomatoes give off, when the chili (or any other tomato based sauce like spaghetti) is boiling, stir in a half teaspoon of baking soda. It'll bubble and foam up for a minute then disappear. It'll magically remove it. For me, it's a must!
My mom got this from an old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. She under bakes them and they are rich, fudgy brownie perfection! Pull them out of the oven just when the toothpick comes out clean, no longer!! YUUUM!
From the NY Times. Eating this was the first time I'd had kale, and it was simply delicious!! The only change I had made from the original recipe is that I added lemon zest and it turned out even better! For the bread crumbs, coarsely crushed homemade croutons would work also. Instead of bread crumbs, you can use a nice thin slice of toasted country bread. Zaar wouldn't let me enter the word crusty/chewy country bread into the ingredient list. If you have a microplane, that works good for grating the garlic instead of finely chopping it.
