Scallion Pancakes with Spicy Dipping Sauce

The Chinese “street food” version of these pancakes are often served for breakfast, but are more often served as an appetizer in North America. For a softer pancake, add a bit more water to the dough; you can substitute fresh garlic scapes for the scallions for a different flavor. 

Stir-Fried Beef and Broccoli

This classic Chinese dish is quick to make, with deep, rich flavor from soy sauce, ginger, and rice wine. Serve over steamed white rice.

Chinese Fried Wontons

Serve these wontons Cantonese-style, with a bowl of red wine vinegar and slivers of fresh ginger for dipping.

Swiss Chard and Pork Pot-stickers

You can shave off some extra steps by using pre-made wonton wrappers, but this dough is fail-proof, is worth the time, and makes nice fat dumplings.
