Pork Egg Rolls
Plenty of ground pork and veggies make this take-out favorite quicker and tastier than delivery. The egg rolls can be fried or baked; surprisingly, calorie-wise, both are about the same.
Hot and Sour Soup with Tofu
In this Chinese soup recipe, an egg is stirred in at the end to form tiny ribbons. For more flavor, add a teaspoon of toasted sesame oil just before serving.Note: Be sure to drain the tofu thoroughly before adding it to the soup so it will soak up the flavor of the broth.
Shrimp Chow Mein
The star of this at-home version of the Chinese takeout favorite? An umami-packed sauce made with chicken broth, oyster sauce, rice-wine vinegar, sesame oil, sambal oelek, and fresh ginger and garlic. It's a delicious foil for tender egg noodles, plump shrimp, and crisp-tender snow peas.
Beef and Broccoli with Black-Bean Garlic Sauce
Better than takeout? We think so! What really sets this beef-and-broccoli stir-fry apart is the addition of black-bean garlic sauce, a rich and super-savory Chinese condiment made with fermented black beans, garlic, and chilis into a rich and super savory paste that soaks into this stir-fry with aplomb.
Broccoli and Pork Stir-Fry
Coins of peeled broccoli stalks add a faint sweetness and crunch to savory pork. Round out the meal with fiber-rich brown rice.
