Pan-Fried Chinese Pancakes
A delicious brunch snack that can be found in many Chinese breakfast shops. Its various names include 'cong you bing,' 'jiu cai bing,', 'scallion pancakes,' 'green onion pancakes,' etc. This particular recipe is passed down through my mother's family, and brings back many good, yummy memories! Can serve with hot-sour sauce, or your favorite Chinese sauce.
Chinese Lion's Head Soup
This is my family's version of lion's head soup and for me it is the best type of comfort food! It is best served with white sticky rice, and wonderful enjoyed on a cold winter day.
Fun Karnal (Beef and Broccoli)
Instead of ordering out Chinese food, do it yourself. Great with white rice or sticky rice (jasmine rice). Family recipe! Substitute beef with 1/2-inch pieces chicken breast prepared the same as the beef above or 2 cups cooked shrimp prepared as above.
Chinese Green Bean Stir-Fry
Asian-style green beans with lots of flavor! This recipe is made for a large party; but can be scaled down for a family dinner. Serve cold or warm.
Hunan Kung Pao
This Hunan kung pao recipe with chicken, shrimp, bell peppers, dried chile peppers, and Sichuan peppercorns tastes similar to what you get from a famous food chain! Serve over thick noodles.
Tsao Mi Fun (Taiwanese Fried Rice Noodles)
My mom's been making me tsao mi fun, in Mandarin, or tsa bi whun, in Taiwanese, since I was a little girl. Tsa bi whun literally translates to 'fried rice noodles'. You'll most likely find all the ingredients at your local supermarket except for the five spice powder, dried Chinese black mushrooms and rice vermicelli which can be found at your local Asian food mart. All the measurements here are pretty much to taste, some people like more pork, some less, some more soy sauce, some less, etc.
Taiwanese-Style Three Cup Chicken
This chicken dish is one of the beer-lover's favorites in Taiwan. It requires three essential ingredients — soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil. An abundant amount of Thai basil and ginger make this chicken dish a heavenly spicy meal. Serve with noodles or rice.
