Pan-Fried Chinese Pancakes

Rating: 4 stars 25
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

Rating: 4.5 stars 131
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.

Pork Dumplings

Rating: 4.5 stars 356
These steamed pork dumplings make the most delectable dim sum.

Chinese Spareribs

Rating: 4.5 stars 125
After searching the internet for a good Chinese Spareribs recipe and not finding any that caught my eye, I decided to make my own. This recipe is pretty simple, and yields tender, juicy, tangy ribs. In Japan, I cooked this in the fish broiler, but it should be fine on the grill or in the oven.

Sweet and Sour Chicken I

Rating: 4.5 stars 1277
Pan fried chicken cubes served with a sweet and sour sauce.

Fun Karnal (Beef and Broccoli)

Rating: 4 stars 14
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

Rating: 4 stars 90
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.

A Hong Kong–style fried shrimp recipe features crispy, mochiko-battered shrimp tossed in a creamy honey-mayonnaise sauce and topped with homemade candied walnuts.

Hunan Kung Pao

This recipe is similar to a famous food chain! Serve over thick noodles.

Tsao Mi Fun (Taiwanese Fried Rice Noodles)

Rating: 4.5 stars 39
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

Rating: 4 stars 61
One of the beer-lovers' favorites in Taiwan. This dish requires three main ingredients - soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil. An abundant amount of Thai basil and ginger make this chicken-stew like dish a heavenly spicy meal to have. Serve with noodles or rice.

Asian Fire Meat

Rating: 4.5 stars 278
For a great tasting beef dish from Asia, fire meat is delicious and easy to prepare. Ice cold beer is the beverage recommended with fire meat.
