Number 1: Chinese Garlic Green Beans
My most popular 2023 recipe on the list is this classic, stir-fry Chinese Garlic Green Beans side dish. The green beans are blistered until tender, and tossed with tons of garlic and a simple, spicy Asian sauce with a touch of heat from the sambal oelek chili paste. This easy side dish pairs so well with just about everything!
Number 2: Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
Tender, seared flank steak strips, broccoli florets, and sliced mushrooms are tossed in a flavorful, savory sauce in this easy, 30-minute, Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry recipe. Everyone loves a good stir fry, so it's no doubt why this restaurant-style dish is number two on the Top 10 Recipes list!
TOP RECIPE TIP: Before slicing the flank steak, place it in the freezer for about 30 minutes until just firm. When using this method, the meat won't fall apart, and allows you to cut thinner slices!
Number 3: Furikake Chex Mix
This highly addictive, sweet and salty, Furikake Chex Mix snack is made with a combo of your favorite cereals and snack foods. Mixed with Japanese Furikake seasoning, and baked in a syrupy, soy-butter sauce, it's like crack. Once you start, you simply cannot stop! Try this recipe for game day!
Number 4: Easy Chinese Chicken Salad
This vibrant Chinese Chicken Salad is way better (and healthier) than takeout! This easy salad features shredded chicken, crisp vegetables, and crunchy Chow Mein noodles, tossed in a tangy Asian dressing. And, it's on the table in less than 10 minutes!
Number 5: Miso Glazed Salmon
Sweet, savory, and full of umami flavor, this Miso Glazed Salmon recipe is beyond easy to make! The yummy miso marinade is the star of this dish. The salmon is perfectly cooked, flaky on the inside, and slightly browned and sticky on the outside from the miso glaze.
DID YOU KNOW? Salmon improves your cardiovascular system, brain, eyes, and liver due to a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins D, and B12. So, eat up!
Number 6: Chinese Salt and Pepper Shrimp
Skip the takeout! This Chinese Salt and Pepper Shrimp is on the Top 10 Recipes of 2023 for good reason! Crispy, spicy, and aromatic pan-fried shrimp are tossed in a sauté of spicy chili peppers, garlic, and herbs, for a dish that literally comes together in just 30 minutes!
Number 7: Crispy Rice with Ginger and Scallions
One bite of Crispy Rice with Ginger and Scallions will have you hooked on this crunchy, easy recipe! Aromatic jasmine rice is the base for this delicious side dish, with crunchy bits of fried rice, ginger, garlic, and chopped scallions. Top with a runny, fried egg for a winner dish the whole family will rave about!
TOP RECIPE TIP: I like to use frozen jasmine rice (which is pre-cooked) and heat it up in the microwave. (Make sure to cool the rice in the refrigerator to dry it out before using.) Or, use leftover rice, which holds up so well in this recipe!
Discover a whole new level of deliciousness when it comes to roasting Brussels sprouts in the air fryer! In just 15 minutes, you can whip up a batch of crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts with Gochujang that will leave your tastebuds tingling.
Korean Gochujang is a popular fermented chili paste that is widely used in Korean cuisine. It's made with red chili peppers, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, and salt, and has a complex and robust taste profile.
Gochujang is a staple in Korean households, and an essential element of Korean cuisine. Gochujang paste can be found in the Asian products section at most grocery stores, or here, on Amazon.
Number 9: Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken
This easy, Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken recipe features tender, succulent chicken infused with the mouthwatering flavors of sweet honey and aromatic garlic, all simmered to perfection in a convenient slow cooker! Who needs takeout when you can make this classic, comforting Chinese dish at home in your own kitchen?
