  1. The description says: "Steamed Clams in a Spicy White Wine Butter Broth!" Say, what?

    The video recipe does look delicious, however. Thanks.

  2. It takes less time to cook this than it does to DRIVE to the Chinese restaurant! Plus it is $2 a serving instead of $10. Thanks!!

  3. Looks good. And thank you for not adding nasty canned baby corn. It is in almost every Americanized Chinese dish. And it tastes awful.

  4. I don't think this will turn out right. The chicken will be overcooked. For one thing the stir fried chicken, once removed, should be added at the very end of the cooking process and immediately served. The stir frying process for the chicken is also too long. The musfrooms should be added earlier as well.

  5. Looks nice!
    A little suggestion:
    Heat up the oil first. Before putting the chicken into the wok, put some fresh shredded garlic&ginger, some Chinese peppercorn, and some dried chilli pepper. Give them a little stir, then drop the chicken. That will enhance the flavor.

  6. This looks good and has motivated me to experiment. But water chestnuts = textural dissonance, so I'll leave them out and substitute broccoli. Would it ruin it to use less oil? Why napa cabbage instead of bok choy? Are they similar? On the website recipe it only shows 2 mins cooking time for the chicken, then later "bring to a boil." Is this enough total cooking time? Seems short.

  7. I have been craving this dish for months, and with no good Chinese food in my town, I figured I'd try my hand at it. I've gotta say it was a big win in my house tonight, and I have two little picky eaters! thanks so much for sharing this! cooking it always seemed to intimidate me, but it was super quick and easy. I'll be trying out some more of your dishes in the future!

  8. A few differences with the original chinese way of doing it…but oh well….
    In China it's a 4 component dish chicken,mushroom,peppers and ginger.

  9. I have been looking for a very long time for a dish/recipe called Steak Kew. Have you heard of this dish? When I was young there was a fine dining restaurant in my town called the Hong Kong House. The owners were fantastic cooks. I know it was probably an expensive dish to cook, that could be why restaurants today don’t seem to make it. Do you know of this dish and do you know of a recipe. Thank you.

  10. I went to the Wolf Pit and searched "fish" and found nothing. Do you have any fish dishes?  Another great video. I am going to mention your channel on my FB page it is so good to me. thanx
