Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Chicken Lettuce Wraps by Joanne Weir

This is one of those dishes that I have to order every single time I go to Chinatown and see them on the menu. I love the crunch of the lettuce, the saltiness of the soy sauce, and the sweetness of the oyster sauce. You can substitute turkey, pork or squab with equally delicious results.

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce by John Spottiswood

My father-in-law has become an amazing cook, and he made this as part of our Easter lunch this year with the fabulous pork tenderloin recipe (see linked below). This version isn't gloppy with extra sauce like you find in many Chinese take out places. It's very flavorful but also relatively light and healthful. He made a TON of it,…

Japanese Teriyaki Chicken

Japanese Teriyaki Chicken by manabu masuda

Buy a bottle of Teriyaki sauce? NO!! It is amazingly easy to make teriyaki sauce at home. All you need is soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. The key ingredient is mirin, which adds shiny look (teri). You can find mirin in Japanese, Korean or Chinese grocery stores .

MINCED CHICKEN & LAP CHEUNG IN LETTUCE CUPS

MINCED CHICKEN & LAP CHEUNG IN LETTUCE CUPS by Linda Tay Esposito

There are so many versions of Chicken in Lettuce Cups. This recipe features the classic trinity of chicken, lap cheung (Chinese wax sausages) and dried shrimp. If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, get the Wycen lap cheung (Washington/Stockton or Clement/7th) . They make their sausages locally and offer extra lean 100%…

Thai Ginger Chicken

Thai Ginger Chicken by John Spottiswood

This is one of the most popular Thai dishes and one of the easiest to make. You can substitute lots of different vegetables and it will still turn out great. While this is traditionally served with chicken, you can substitute fish, shrimp, beef, pork or tofu and it will still be wonderful. We made this without chile peppers and…

Shrimp and Tofu with Black Bean Sauce

Shrimp and Tofu with Black Bean Sauce by John Spottiswood

We're on a mission to create the ultimate black bean sauce. This recipe is getting pretty close I think. I took bits from a traditional Chinese recipe and combined those with another few bits that I got from a Martin Yan recipe. The result was not as sweet as Martin Yan's, but with just enough sweetness to fill out the flavor of…

This is a delicious curry flavored shrimp stir fry without a heavy curry sauce. The combination of curry and basil is really delicious. This is normally not served very spicy, but you can spice it up as much as you want.

Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken by Wayne Ehlers

This recipe is much closer to how Kung Pao chicken is done in China. I don't know why restaurants here in the United States try to "Americanize" it, because most who try this version forget about the others.

XINJIANG LAMB MINI PITA POCKETS

XINJIANG LAMB MINI PITA POCKETS by Linda Tay Esposito

On the Silk Road path, the Uyghur cuisine in north western China uses a lot of spices and features goat and lamb dominantly. It's not what one would typically think of as Chinese foods. The Uyghurs also serve most of their dishes with a chewy flatbread that reminds me of bagel just holeless. This Xinjiang Lamb Mini Pita Pockets…

Creamy Cauliflower And Lakers Magic!

Creamy Cauliflower And Lakers Magic! by kathy gori

One thing I love about fixing a tandoori chicken lunch is the simplicity. Once the chicken has been marinated, nothing goes better with this dish than a bread some pickled cucumbers and one veg. The most likely vegetable to find on my tandoori table is cauliflower. Especially when I can get a beautiful organic one for 99 cents!…

World Cup Cabbage. Quick, Easy and Comforting When You Don't Make The Late Goal. by kathy gori

I have to be honest here. I've never watched a soccer game. Basketball has always been my sport. The only reason that I've never really watched soccer is because like most citizens of the US of A, the TV machine has never told me to. But all of a…
