Does anyone have any good real Chinese recipes?

Published by at 4:03 am under Chinese

I'm talking about recipes of dishes from China, not the sort of sweet and sour cantonese stuff we get in the UK. I want to make MaPo tofu, Yuxiang qiezi, or anything from sichuan or hunan cuisine.

Can anyone help me out? Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Ma Po Tofu

1 tablespoon oyster-flavored sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 pound ground pork or beef
1 package (14 to 16 ounces) soft or regular tofu, drained
1/3 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
1 teaspoon black bean garlic sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground toasted Sichuan peppercorns
2 tablespoons cooking oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 fresh red chile pepper, minced

Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl. Add pork and mix well. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut tofu into 1/2-inch cubes. Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl; set aside.
Place a wok over high heat until hot. Add oil, swirling to coat sides. Add garlic and chile pepper, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add pork and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add tofu and sauce. Cook, stirring gently, until tofu is heated through and sauce boils and thickens. Place in a serving bowl and garnish with green onions.
