When the rice is done, remove from the heat and set aside.

When my family moved from Ontario, Canada to Northern Pennsylvania, USA in 1972, we found that there were no ethnic restaurants in the Allegheny Mountains. We had been used to ordering Chinese food in Canada for a weekend treat. In order to compensate for this lack of authentic Chinese food, my dad came up with several "Chinese" recipes that he would cook for special occasions. Since my siblings and I were still young enough and did not really miss the authentic Chinese food, we were thrilled any time daddy made Chinese food. The big thrill was laying out all the ingredients and sorting them into the various dishes. Then helping daddy chop and cook the Chinese food. I have continued this tradition with my kids. We find any frozen Chinese egg rolls or pot stickers and serve them with these dishes. So try these recipes for change of taste in the middle of the week or on a special occasion. Serve with the rice, Chinese Sweet and Sour Chicken, additional soy sauce and any favorite frozen Chinese appetizers.
