chinese food recipes and easy method

egg bubble soup


4 (250 g) eggs, beaten
1/8 tsp pepper
3 1/2 oz (100 g) lard or vegetable oil
1 tsp scallions, chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
1 tsp MSG

Heat the oil in a work over low heat to about 350oF (175oC),
or until a piece of scallion green sizzles and moves around
when dropped in the oil.

Add the eggs and fry until the egg solution bubbles but has
not yet begun to brown. Add 4 cups (1 liter) of water. Stir
in the salt, MSG, and pepper. Simmer until fragrant. Pour
the soup into a tureen, sprinkle with scallions, and serve.

mini spring roll

(Made with mini spring roll wrappers)
Yield: 20 Spring Rolls


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons peeled and grated fresh ginger
3 1/2 oz (100 g) ground (minced) pork
3 1/2 oz (100 g) ground (minced) chicken
2 oz (60 g) ground (minced) shrimp
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 small carrot, finely chopped
6 canned water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
4 scallions (shallots), finely chopped
1 cup (3 oz/90 g) shredded Chinese cabbage
2 teaspoons cornstarch (cornflour)
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons chicken stock
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
20 frozen mini spring roll wrappers, about 4 1/2 inches
(11.5 cm) square, thawed
2 teaspoons cornstarch (cornflour) mixed with 2 tablespoons

4 cups (32 fl oz/1 L) vegetable oil for deep-frying

Mix together the cornstarch, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and
chicken stock. Set aside.

Heat wok and add 1 tablespoon oil, swirling down the sides
of the wok. When oil is ready, add garlic and ginger,
stir-frying until fragrant (approximately 1 minute). Add
the ground pork, chicken, and shrimp. Stir-fry until they
change color (approximately 3 minutes). Remove the
ingredients from the wok and set aside.

Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the wok. When hot, add, in the
following order, the celery, carrot, water chestnuts,
scallions, and cabbage. On high heat, stir-fry the
vegetables until they have softened (approximately
2 minutes). Add the cornstarch/oyster sauce mixture. Bring
the ingredients to boiling, and then reduce the heat to
medium and continue cooking to allow the sauce to thicken
(between 1 and 2 minutes). Remove the wok from the heat.
When the ingredients have cooled add the pork mixture,
stirring it in to mix well. Add the sesame oil.

Wrappers: Mix together the cornstarch and water. Carefully
wet the edges of the spring roll wrapper with the
cornstarch/water mixture. Mound 1 tablespoon of filling in
the center. Roll the wrapper up diagonally, folding in the
sides. Repeat until all the spring rolls are made.

Heat the 4 cups of oil in a wok, using a deep-frying
thermometer to determine when the temperature reaches 375
degrees F (190 degrees Celsius). (If you don't have a
deep-fry thermometer, just stick a bread cube in the oil -
when it sizzles and turns a golden color, the oil is hot
enough). Cook each spring roll until it turns golden brown,
in batches of 4 at a time. Remove and drain on paper towels.
Serve hot.
