Chinese Take Out Dishes - Want to Make Them at Home

cstout | Feb 18, 201211:23 AM

OK, I know there are many fine books out there covering all aspects of Asian Cooking, but I am looking for some good 'Ole Chinese American (or is it American Chinese?) recipes that don't call for a bunch of exotic spices & sauces I won't be able to find unless I order online.

Authentic is not a priority here, just some dishes that will satisfy my taste for the stuff that comes in those little white boxes.

I know I am settling for "second best" by this request, please forgive me. I do have a carbon steel wok & would like to get the scoop on how to make some decent rice. (I told you I need the basics). My rice cooker took a trip to the thrift store a while back when I was in a minimalist mood.

Any suggestions will be appreciated...I just dabbed my finger on the bottle of soy sauce & it tasted so good...hope I can make something to go with it......
