    Chinese cooking at home

    Chinese vegetable stir-fry is a healthy and easy dish to prepare at

    home. You can buy pre-cut frozen vegetables at the grocery store, or

    fresh ingredients like broccoli, snow peas, green beans, mushrooms

    and carrots. Traditional Chinese cuisine includes vegetarian stir-fry

    but also a variety of meat including chicken, pork, beef and shrimp.



    Vegetable tips

    Vegetables such as carrots take longer to cook than softer vegetables

    like green beans. A variety of colors and flavors are central to

    Chinese cooking, so you want your vegetables to retain their color,

    flavor, and texture but still be cooked properly. If you're cooking

    with carrots, radishes, daikon (a large radish), or ginger root,

    slice them thinly so they cook quickly.



    Stir-Fry like a pro

    To stir fry, you'll need a wok or a deep round-bottomed pan. You can

    use an ordinary skillet but make sure not to overcrowd the pan, as

    the vegetables may not cook evenly. Use just enough oil to coat the

    bottom of the pan when you swirl the oil around. Usually one or two

    tablespoons of olive, corn, vegetable or peanut oil, and/or a

    teaspoon of sesame oil, make enough for one to six people.



    All about rice

    Stir-fry is often served with rice. Most supermarkets sell rice in

    small bags and boxes, with cooking instructions on the package. Some

    white rice is pre-peeled with a chemical wash that you will need to

    rinse off. Most common brands will not need washing but if you

    purchase an economy bag from an Asian market, you may need to wash

    the rice.



    Add rice to water, usually about twice the volume of water for the

    amount of rice you're cooking. Bring to a boil, cover, and leave on

    low heat until done. Knowing when rice is done is a common challenge

    for the home cook. Natural brown rice usually takes 40-60 minutes to

    cook, and has a healthy, nutty flavor of its own. White rice usually

    takes 20 minutes and can dissolve into a pasty, starchy mush if

    overcooked. You can also buy individual serving packets of precooked

    rice that take only 5-10 minutes to prepare.



    Noodles, anyone?

    Noodles are an alternative to rice. In many take-out Chinese

    restaurants, noodles are made from refined wheat flour. At home,

    experiment with whole wheat, buckwheat, rice-flour, bean thread, egg

    or cellophane noodles.



    Don't forget the sauce

    Traditional Chinese sauces are more complex than simple soy sauce.

    The Chinese like to prepare sauces by fermenting fish, which is not

    as popular in America. There are many ready-made sauces available

    that accommodate the Western palate, including sweet-and-sour sauce,

    duck sauce, teriyaki sauce, Szechwan hot-pepper sauce, peanut sauce,

    hoisin sauce and many other types of sauces available in the Asian

    foods aisle. You also can use marinades, like Teriyaki Marinade, to

    make your own sauces at home.



    Experiment and enjoy

    Exploring other cultures through cuisine is a great way to expand

    your dinner menu. Experiment with ingredients and flavor combinations

    to personalize each dish. Don't worry about sticking with tradition—

    have fun!



    Tip: When making stir-fry, cook the toughest and thickest vegetables

    first (carrots, broccoli & cabbage). Once these are soft, add the

    more delicate veggies (bok choy, snow peas & bean sprouts).
