Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Jjajang lamb noodles

    • lizbot2000 on February 17, 2019

      My last attempt at jjajangmyeon was a horrific failure, so I am very happy to say this was delicious! It took a few dishes, which was a bit of a pain, but overall it wasn't much work for a really nice dish. Next time I think I'll pickle the cucumbers and use more scallions.

  • Yu xiang eggplant with cranberries and almonds

    • lizbot2000 on February 17, 2019

      I love dried cranberries, so I had to try this. It was great and very easy to make. I'm planning to make lunch boxes for the week out of this, some rice, some air fried tofu, and some stir fried greens.

Wildly inventive Chinese-American home cooking from the siblings behind Boston’s acclaimed Mei Mei restaurant.

Too intimidated to cook Chinese food at home but crave those punchy flavors? Not anymore. Put down that takeout kung pao chicken and get in the kitchen! Full of irresistible recipes that marry traditional Asian ingredients with comforting American classics and seasonal ingredients, Double Awesome Chinese Food delivers the goods. The three fun-loving Chinese-American siblings behind the acclaimed restaurant Mei Mei take the fear factor out of cooking this complex cuisine, infusing it with creativity, playfulness, and ease.

Take the Double Awesome: flaky scallion pancakes stuffed with two oozy eggs, sharp cheddar, and garlicky pesto; could there be anything better? Ridiculously delicious and unexpected dishes like Cranberry Sweet and Sour Stir-fried Pork and Red Curry Frito Pie will become new staples for your cooking lineup. Throw a hands-on dumpling-making party and let your friends decide whether to serve them chewy and pan-seared or crackly and deep-fried. Packed with pro-cooking tips, sauces to amp up any meal, sustainable sourcing advice, and over 100 delicious recipes, this book is your ticket to making the Chinese food of your dreams any night of the week.
