Chinese-Style Recipes You Should Try At Home
Have a taste of Chinese flavors with these inspired recipes.
These Chinese recipes don't need to be authentic! All you really need are the flavors and ingredients to make it taste as it would if someone were to make it taste just so.
If you're curious about how the Chinese do it and what flavors are best when cooking something that's inspired by their cuisine, here are all the recipes you need to know:
1 Chinese-Style Fried Chicken Recipe
You can't go wrong with fried chicken! This fried chicken is particularly flavorful, thanks to the spice rub it gets before it is cooked. The chicken gets extra crispy skin from the steaming, before it even goes into the hot oil.
2 Chinese-Style Pork Adobo Recipe
Adobo may not be Chinese in origin but we still made it into a delicious recipe. This Chinese-inspired version adds sweetness and more ingredients to make it heartier than usual. This has mushrooms with the pork plus an extra spice (Can you see the star anise?) to make it taste different from the usual.
3 Chinese-Style Pork Asado Recipe
There are many different versions of the asado recipe. There are those which use fresh tomatoes instead of tomato sauce, some don't use star anise but use other ingredients to make it taste sweet and aromatic. This Chinese-style recipe uses five spice, cooking wine, hoisin sauce, and star anise to make it aromatic, sweet-savory, and delicious with just a hint of warmth.
4 Chinese Fried Chicken Recipe
This fried chicken is not your ordinary fried chicken. There's no need to steam this Chinese-inspired recipe but instead, it gets to soak in a supremely flavorful marinade before getting a light coating of batter that crisps up the outside. This leaves the tender and juicy meat flavored with the Asian marinade bursts of flavor with every bite you take.
5 Yang Chow-Style Fried Rice Recipe
Every Chinese restaurant has its version of the Yang Chow fried rice so it's hard to pin down exactly how it's made. That's why we came up with this easy recipe that will help you not only recreate the flavors you love. Unli rice? Serve it up!
6 Oriental-Style Nido Soup Recipe
This recipe is tasty yet still satisfying enough to be what you're looking for in a soup as simple and as easy to make as this one. Plus, we used a substitute for bird's nest that's easier to find.
7 Lechon Macau Recipe
There's no question that we love our pork so this recipe comes from the heart of our love affair with the meat. There is something deeply satisfying when you see a crispy pork belly recipe that you're not only anticipating to be delicious but also looks amazingly appetizing, too. Take a bite and you'll find this pork has a punch of five spice to make it better than your ordinary lechon kawali recipe.
8 Chinese-Style Steamed Tilapia Recipe
Simple flavors don't need to be complicated to be delicious but in this recipe, we find that it's best if the flavors are complex enough to help bring out the flavors of the tender fish.
9 Chinese-Style Vegetable Stir Fry Recipe
This is not your ordinary chop suey recipe! In fact, this is your leveled-up recipe that boasts of not just chunks of cauliflower, slivers of carrots, and squares of bell peppers, but it also has slices of zucchini, thinly sliced pork, chunks of eggplant, and strings of green beans to boost the vegetable count in this hearty recipe.
10 Chinese-Style Beef with Broccoli Recipe
We may have all fallen in love with this dish as soon as we took a bite of it at the restaurant, but amazingly enough, it's a simple and fast stir-fried recipe that is easily doable at home.
