now THIS is how you make a cheap, easy, and healty dinner. **PICS**

made a little ‘orange chicken’ stirfry last night. VERY simple.

take 2-3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts – cut ’em up into ~1" cubes. Marinate them with 2 tbsp rice wine, and 2 tbsp corn starch. let ’em marinate for 30 minutes.

sauce: ~1/2cup OJ, 2tbsp soy sauce, 1tsp sesame oil (yum), 2tsp brown sugar, 1tsp chili oil or flakes. I put a tbsp of corn starch in the sauce as well – really helps to thicken it up. If you like more orange flavor (this just has a hint of orange), put some orange marmelade in the sauce. that’ll really kick it up a notch

Good recipe for Kalbi?

I’ve looked online for a good kalbi recipe, but came across so many that I wasn’t sure which to go for. Typical info overload. It is one of my favorite dishes, but so far have been limited to getting it at a restaurant which tends to be pretty expensive.

Anyway, if someone could either type up a recipe or just point me to a website that has a good recipe, I’d appreciate it.
add some Beef Dashida – basically Korean MSG (though not nearly as headachey) – which I don’t believe websites will generally tell you. Also, before you cook the beef wash it. In that I mean douse it in some water and drain it/squeeze – not too much though cuz you don’t want mush for dinner….

would like to make my own fried rice

got any tips?

i was thinking of throwing in snap peas and carrots, maybe a few other ingredients. i’m pretty open to any ideas. can it be done in a wok? after loving it so much for all these years in restraunts, i realized i’ve never made it at home and have no idea how to even attempt it.
Is this my first post?

If you’re gonna put snap peas and carrots in it, you might as well save yourself the trouble and go to Panda Express.

Heat some sesame oil in a wok (or big pan). Throw in some onion and minced garlic (don’t let the garlic burn). Throw in left over rice (new rice gives you moist mushy fried rice). Let it sit till the rice gets a little crusty. Add a little soy sauce and a little salt. Throw in some chopped kim chi & juice and whatever left over meats (kalbi) / veggies (chopped green beans please) you have laying around in your fridge. Put an egg in there if you’d like.
