What happened there???

Anyway... Mike retired and sold both restaurants. The best grub ever. No MSG. Nothin else... all natural.

I ran into him the other day at the grocery store and asked him if he would tell me his recipe for almond guy ding. He gave me his phone number. I just talked to him and gave him my eaddy. He is sending me ALL his recipes. All he asked is that I do not share them except with close friends and relatives and I that ask them to do the same.

I can't wait to replicate!!!

We had the funniest chinese recipe book - it would list all the ingredients with letters, as in A- onions; b- leeks, etc. Then it would say in the instructions "chop K finely" and you had to look up wht K was. Highly entertaining.
What I like about chinese cooking is you get to use ALL your cooking vocabulary: mince, chop, slice, dice, julienne; reserve; and so on. Plus it's incredibly calming to have to get everything ready (45 mn of chopping and measuring), then you cook for about 5 frantic minutes, then you eat.. for another 5 minutes. Yum.

Let us know how it works out, gnu. It sounds great.

I make only two Chinese recipes: broccoli beef and tomato beef.

Well, there's Korean chicken:

Put chicken parts in the slow cooker (I like thighs)
Pour on 2 T soy sauce
Slow cook till tender

Make rice
defat the sauce
stir some chili powder into the juice
take the strings out of some snow peas and put them on top
sprinkle with chopped green onion

Serve. Oranges or pineapple are nice with this.

The first really good Chinese meal I had was with Tom Paley, who took Eric Leggoe and me to a 'little place he knew'. Not in Chinatown, but it was one of the best Chinese meals I ever had. Now that I live far away from the big city I make my own - not hard, but it can be a palaver. I particularly like making dim-sum, and I recommend this to anyone who's never tried it - great fun.

It certainly tastes better. The food served up by the Chinese restaurants and takeaways anywhere near where I live is disgusting.

Mike never used any MSG. All natural. Most expensive in town but it was worth the splurge every couple of months.

Well I quite often make a basic stir fry, which is basically put some oil in a large non stick pot (I don't have a wok). Get it hot and add onions, celery, peppers, and whatever other vegetables I have (a bag of frozen works, if I don't have fresh). I saute till crisp/tender, then add a sauce made of soy sauce, a little cornstarch and some sugar or honey. Serve it over rice. You could add meat or shrimp (or tofu) as well.

For Lo Mein - you can use any kind of noodles (I've used spaghetti!)if you don't happen to have the real chinese noodles. Cook the noodles, sauté assorted veggies (onions are pretty much a must - the rest is at your discretion)and then I have a basic stir fry sauce that I purchase. Mix the veggies and noodles, pour on the sauce to taste, toss, and you have a reasonable approximation of Lo Mein (that is a lot less oily than what you usually get in a restaurant).

And fried rice, which I usually do when I have leftover white rice (I often freeze leftover rice for just this purpose)- again sauté the vegetables you have on hand - onions, peppers, peas are all good. When the veggies are about done, add an egg and scramble it up well, then the rice, then soy sauce - and mix it all up.

Pineapple chunks can be added to all of the above if you like - gives it more of a polynesian twist.

These aren't gourmet recipes - but they're quick and fairly healthy.

Silly gnu, of course it's not two tons of soy sauce. We measure soy sauce by the gallon, not by weight.

If you can't get snow peas, see if you can find sugar-snap peas in the frozen food section of your supermarket.

I have that "mince C,D,E,F,G finely, add to B, then drizzle with half of H and sprinkle with I..." cookbook as well. It's called "An Encyclopedia of Chinese Food and Cooking" and it's the best Chinese cookbook I've every used, despite its peculiarities. Everything's in there someplace...
