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
SERVES: 4
ingredients
MARINADE

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
SAUCE
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

directions
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.

    I took this cooking class from this girl from China over the summer, and we made some really easy stuff…

    For example, we basically just grilled shrimp with some salt on it, then grilled them inside little rings of cucumber. Simples, but really good.
