Sweet and Spicy Pork and Napa Cabbage Stir-Fry with Spicy Noodles

Rating: Unrated
The Thai sweet chili sauce gives this dish a sweet and spicy flavor that my kids love. You can adjust the heat level by adding more or less of the sauce or adding additional red pepper flakes, if you like it really hot.

Dong Po (Chinese Pork Belly)

Rating: Unrated
Named after an ancient Chinese statesman, poet and gourmand of the Song Dynasty, the pork belly is cooked three different ways, rendering the meat succulent, tender and very flavorful. (If you can't find pork belly, ask the butcher; it is what bacon is before it is cured and sliced.)

Taiwanese Ground Pork and Pickled Cucumbers

Rating: Unrated
This is a Taiwanese-style minced pork, usually eaten over rice with a vegetable. Can easily double or triple the recipe if needed.

Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork)

Rating: Unrated
"Char siu" literally means "fork roast" - "char" being "fork" (both noun and verb) and "siu" being "roast" - after the traditional cooking method for the dish: long strips of seasoned boneless pork are skewered with long forks and placed in a covered oven or over a fire. This is best cooked over charcoal, but it's important to cook with indirect heat.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Rating: Unrated
My husband's grandmother was Chinese. She taught me this one. This is the way Gramma made Sweet and Sour all her life (she died 6 years ago at age 94). The secret is apple cider vinegar.

These tasty treats make a perfect appetizer or you can serve them as a main dish. For a main dish count on about 15 dumplings per person. Serve with hoisin sauce, hot Chinese-style mustard and toasted sesame seeds.
