Chichi's Chinese Chichi Wang Post a comment

If eating the fermented tofu straight-up isn't for you, try stir-frying vegetables with it. One or two cubes flavors a whole stir-fry dish, imparting a salty-sweet depth that's a nice change from soy sauce or oyster sauce. Cauliflower take well to its strong flavor. More

Stir-Fried Rice Noodles with Eggs and Greens

Chichi's Chinese Chichi Wang 2 comments

Stir-frying dried rice noodles is much the same as stir-frying rice, in terms of the amount of oil, the seasonings, and the ingredients you want to add. Eggs, vegetables, ground meat - anything which can be parsed into little bits, works well for stir-frying with the noodles. More

Pork and Vegetable Spring Rolls

Chichi's Chinese Chichi Wang Post a comment

The filling for these spring rolls is tender and full of flavorful cabbage-y liquid, thickened with cornstarch for that signature "velvety" sheen. In addition to cabbage, you'll find little slivers of stir-fried pork, mushroom, and bean sprouts. More
