Sweet and Spicy Pork and Napa Cabbage Stir-Fry with Spicy Noodles

Rating: 4.5 stars 153
A Thai sweet chili sauce gives this pork cabbage stir-fry dish a sweet and spicy flavor that my kids love. You can adjust the heat level by adding more or less sauce or adding additional red pepper flakes if you like it hot.

Dong Po (Chinese Pork Belly)

Slices of rich pork belly are cooked three different ways, with a final long simmer that transforms this lowly cut into meltingly tender meat.

Pork Dumplings

Rating: 4.5 stars 372
These tasty treats make a perfect appetizer or you can serve them as a main dish. For a main dish count on about 15 dumplings per person. Serve with hoisin sauce, hot Chinese-style mustard and toasted sesame seeds.

Chinese Pearl Meatballs

Rating: 5 stars 5
These tasty meatballs are easy to make. Wonderful for your Chinese New Year celebration or as an addition to a holiday buffet. Some folks dye the glutinous rice with red or green for a holiday touch. Another serving idea is to whisk together 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, and garlic to taste and sprinkle over the meatballs, rice, and some steamed vegetables.
