Top 10 Chinese Recipes in 2023

[ad_1]

Jing has more delicious recipes coming soon, and we have many exciting plans for 2024! As we close out 2023, I thought it would be fun to see which recipes were the most searched and requested in the past 12 months. Since most of our readers come from the United States and Canada, I created two lists: one for the top 10 Chinese recipes worldwide, and the other for the most popular Chinese recipes in North America.

I am proud to say that most of the recipes on the list are Jing’s own creation. Some, like the pickled radishes, are old family recipes. Others are dishes she makes for herself and friends. Thank you to our loyal readers for your steady support and comments, and best wishes for a healthy, prosperous 2024!

Shrimp Fried Rice

Shrimp Fried Rice

Fried rice is a snack dish in China: it is an easy way to use leftover rice. There are many fried rice recipes. They all share two things in common: left over, firm, cold rice, and a very hot wok or skillet to heat the rice evenly through rapid stirring and turning. The secret to successful fried rice is in how you prepare the rice beforehand. If you follow the instructions on a bag of rice sold in an American grocery, you will get sticky, gummy fried rice. See the Notes below for guidance in preparing your rice.

Chinese Spicy Fried Chicken Wings

Chinese Hot Spicy Chicken Wings

Have you ever tried atomic Buffalo wings, or the “suicide” chicken wings sold at restaurants near the University of Buffalo? This recipe uses the “millet” xiaomila chili pepper, which is nearly as hot as the Thai chili. If you like hot wings, then you must try this recipe and let me know how it compares. Unlike the deep-fried Buffalo-style wings, we use a small amount of oil to fry the chicken wings until they are golden brown on both sides, and the skin is crispy, but the meat inside is tender. We don’t use the oven, we don’t use a lot of hot oil, and we can still make delicious spicy chicken wings! Less oil makes this spicy chicken wing less greasy, less expensive, and more healthy, and delicious.

Chinese Spicy Crayfish

Chinese-style Spicy Crayfish

It’s hot June, do you know what is popular in China right now? Just like people in the southern US, Chinese really love crayfish. This time of year, when you see a small party of people together, you’ll see that they’re sure to choose crayfish on the menu. Spicy crayfish paired with a cold beer, makes a wonderful summer night. This recipe uses a pre-mixed spice packet for Chinese Spicy Crayfish. If you want to make your own from scratch, then you can use doubanjiang bean paste and chili, with a combination of chili oil, Sichuan peppercorns and spices (star anise, bay leaves, cinnamon). These ingredients are used to make the base for Sichuan hot pot, so you can also use a pre-mixed hot pot soup base.

Pork Fried Rice

Pork Fried Rice

While Fried Rice is a popular snack in China, as a way to reheat leftover cooked rice, I think this recipe falls under the category of American-Chinese takeout. We normally only offer authentic Chinese home recipes, but occasionally, for very popular dishes, we make an exception. Pork Fried Rice in the US typically uses barbecued pork as the protein. This recipe simulates that flavor by using a marinade of dark soy sauce, brown sugar, oyster sauce, and Shaoxing wine. Marinate the pork while you prepare the other ingredients, or overnight in the refrigerator.Before cooking the fried rice, first brown the pork over medium-low heat. Then set aside the pork and add it back to the dish as part of finishing.
