12-16 Chicken Wings
1/2 cup Mo'er [Cloud ears, Dried Tree Fungus, Dried Vegetables]
1 12oz Coca-Cola NOT DIET diet soda totally changes the flavor.
3-4 oz of Chinese cooking wine/any dry white wine
1-2 tablespoons Chinese Soy Sauce- do not use Kikkoman, it's too thin
Water as needed
This is a recipe from Beijing given to me by my brother-in-law.
1Place wings in wok/pot and just cover with water. Add soy sauce and bring to boil, lower heat to a gentle simmer. Add coke and wine and let cook for about 45 minutes.
In the meantime, soak the mo’er in hot water for 45 minutes. Remove from water and pick off any hard woody parts. Add to wings and cook until liquid has reduced and thickened.
The sauce should be the consistency of pancake syrup. Finger Licken Good.
These deliciously tender, juicy chicken wings will definitely give you something to squawk about. While you don’t have to be a pitmaster to whip these up, they do come out looking positively professional if you follow these easy steps.
