Pan-Fried Chinese Pancakes

Rating: 3.65 stars
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: 4.63 stars
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: 4.62 stars
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.

Chinese Spareribs

Rating: 4.38 stars
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: 4.49 stars
Pan fried chicken cubes served with a sweet and sour sauce.

Fun Karnal (Beef and Broccoli)

Rating: 4.14 stars
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: 4.02 stars
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.

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Tsao Mi Fun (Taiwanese Fried Rice Noodles)

Rating: 4.44 stars
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: 4.21 stars
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.

Chinese Steamed White Fish Fillet with Tofu (Cantonese Style)

Rating: 3.91 stars
This looks like a lot of ingredients but you'll find it's really easy to do...and so beautiful and tasty at the same time!!! Serve this with steamed jasmine rice and stir-fried or steamed Asian veggies. An easy and healthy meal!
