How to Stir Fry Any Vegetable – Three Basic Flavors and Recipes (蒜蓉炒西兰花/姜汁炒芥兰/虾酱炒通心菜)
Broccoli with Garlic, Gai Lan with Ginger Sauce, and Morning Glory with Shrimp Paste and Chilis – we’ll be using these three dishes to illustrate three flavor profiles that you can apply to almost any vegetable.
Stir-fried greens are an important part of any Chinese meal, and are a quick and easy thing to whip up as a side dish. When learning how to cook these, it’s best to think in terms of ‘technique’ and ‘flavor profile’. If you guys like this sort of thing, let us know and we can do another video one day with three more flavor profiles.
As always, the detailed recipes and a discussion on other vegetables/flavor profiles are over here on /r/cooking:
Learn how to cook real deal, authentic Chinese food! We post recipes every Tuesday (unless we happen to be travelling) 🙂
We’re Steph and Chris – a food-obsessed couple that lives in Shenzhen, China. Steph is from Guangzhou and loves cooking food from throughout China – you’ll usually be watching her behind the wok. Chris is a long-term expat from America that’s been living in China and loving it for the last nine years – you’ll be listening to his explanations and recipe details, and doing some cooking at times as well.
This channel is all about learning how to cook the same taste that you’d get in China. Our goal for each video is to give you a recipe that would at least get you close to what’s made by some of our favorite restaurants here. Because of that, our recipes are no-holds-barred Chinese when it comes to style and ingredients – but feel free to ask for tips about adaptations and sourcing too!
