Five-Spice Beef Stir-Fry

Monday, March 7, 2011

36 Comments

There was a cooking program that I used to love called Simply Magic. It is an Australian cooking show presented by Kylie Kwong and it features Chinese food.  Her recipes are healthy, made with fresh ingredients, and they are attainable in a home kitchen.  Needless to say… I adore her.  It was while watching her […]

Not long ago I had lunch at a little Lebanese restaurant and I discovered some really wonderful new dishes. One of these was shawarma, a meat mixture that is marinated in a spice blend, placed on a spit, and slowly grilled.  It is sliced thin and served with pita and other fresh garnishes.  It is […]

Coconut Curry Shrimp with Spicy Peanut Noodles

When I get a craving for something I want instant satisfaction. Ask anyone who had ever accompanied me to an amusement park, waited with me in line, or sat with me while we waited for a table at a restaurant.  Patience is not one of my virtues.  In fact, I get down right testy when […]

Coconut Curry Braised Short Ribs

I love coconut curries.  They are common on Thai menus and I adore their rich, creamy, and spicy flavors. Thai flavors have become rather common in my kitchen in recent years.  After I have my first bite of Pad Thai nearly ten years ago I became almost obsessed with trying new dishes and deconstructing them […]

Sweet and Sour Chicken

 Sometimes it is all about the sauce.   The best part of this meal is really the sauce.  It is the right combination of tangy and sweet, unlike the neon red sauces served by most Chinese carry-out places. Not to say my mixture of chicken and vegetables in this dish are not fantastic, because they are, […]

Orange Chicken with Fried Rice

Growing up I despised what I knew as Chinese food. What we always got was greasy, over breaded, over sauced American take-out Chinese food.  It was terrible.  This aversion became a fairly serious problem for me when I was first invited over to my future mother-in-law’s house for dinner.  She is from Taiwan and was […]

I don’t pretend to be an expert on Asian cooking.  Far from it. However, I know what I like, and I know what tastes good, and this chicken and noodle dish certainly does taste good!  The chicken and the noodles could stand alone as separate dishes, but I adore the spiced chicken with the peanut […]

 I decided, because I don’t have enough to do, that I would join The Daring Kitchen.  I know.  I know.   This month’s Daring Cooks Challenge is by Jen from Use Real Butter who challenged us all to make homemade pot sticker wrappers.    Overall, it was not terribly difficult, but it did take a little time […]

   When my husband was little his mother, who is from Taiwan, would take him along on her shopping expeditions to Chinatown in his hometown of Chicago.  As a treat, she would buy him char siu bao, or Chinese BBQ pork steamed buns.  I believe food can create memories, and passing a Chinese bakery one […]
