Our second class in the "Authentic China" series is here, taught by Chef Timmy Kirk, who lived and worked in China for 5 years! This time he's covering the Guangdong Region (formerly called Canton), the home of Cantonese Cuisine, one of the most famous regional cuisines around the world. You'll learn the proper techniques for a successful stir-fry.
A classic and well-rounded menu in China isn't too different to the western way. This meal has some veggies, some meat, and some starch. The difference lies in the techniques and flavor profiles.
The first dish is a stir-fry vegetable with a common ginger sauce served on many vegetables in China. The second course consists of two dishes. The protein is a dish simply translated as "Cumin Beef" but its so much more than that, it's bursting with flavor that keeps you coming back for more. Finally, the starch of the day is stir-fried egg lo mein, guaranteed to be better than the take-out place around the corner, these are the real deal.
- Gailan (Chinese Broccoli) w/ Ginger Sauce
