Chinese Recipes are among the most popular recipes on the site, second to Slow Cooker Recipes! Chinese Food is the second most popular ethnic cuisine in the United States behind Italian Food (this is mostly thanks to how much people love pizza).
We are team Chinese Food here at Dinner, then Dessert over team pizza any day of the week.
Chinese Beef Recipes aren’t as popular as their chicken counterparts but I dare you to find someone who isn’t a huge fan of Beef and Broccoli or Mongolian Beef (one of the most popular recipes on the site!)
When it comes to Chinese Pork Recipes, we are still working on building out the sections a little more fully but our favorite recipe is Sweet and Sour Pork, full of crispy, sticky and sweet bites of pork with chunks of pineapples and bell peppers.
Chinese Noodle and Rice Recipes are a great side dish option we tend to overlook thanks to free Chinese Steamed Rice that we get with every meal. But Fried Rice is an easy ten minute recipe and Lo Mein and Chow Mein make any meal feel special!
When it comes to tools of the trade needed to cook Chinese recipes you only need a wok or a large skillet and some tongs. Anything else you can make work with what you’ve got.
When you are preparing your recipe one of the most important things to remember is how fast Chinese food recipes cook, so prepare all your vegetables and sauces ahead of time as cook times are less than 5 minutes long usually.
When cooking your stir-fries or fried dishes remember to use your wok or large skillet to prevent your pan from becoming crowded. This keeps the temperature high (we need this to cook fast and hot). Overcrowding your pan will lead to soggy, overcooked food.
