My friends and I love getting Chinese take-out and binge watching netflix. It'll be so much fun to try making these recipes ourselves.

I do love the occasional Chinese takeout, but it would be so fun to try making some of these dishes myself! There are so many options here...I can see all of my favorites listed.

Do you have a Recipe for Chinese Red Sauce. The dipping sauce you get when you order Chinese BBQ Pork or Fried Shrimp

I think you might be looking for sweet and sour sauce. You could try our "Simple Sweet and Sour Sauce" recipe in the list above.

Crab Rangoon. Though the Dragon and Phoenix roll my local eatery had a while back was great, too.

Peking Sesame Chicken.

Szechuan Beef from T'Jins

looking for Chinese Special Soup and the other heavy duty soup (can't remember the name).

Look up the recipe for Twinkie cupcakes on this site, this might be what you want.

I would like a fried rice recipe that uses snow pea pods, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, green onions, been sprouts and BBQ pork. Like the restaurant I used to go to called Dan Chan's in Fitchburg Mass Yummy that fried rice was so good and I have never found any other fried rice that even came closes to it wonderful taste. Does any one know how they made it? or what they used for sauce in it?
