    Anyhow i really know nothing about chinese food and i love the stuff. I like mongolian beef, general tsoes(sp) chicken, sweet sour anything, basically about any of it. I have tried a couple recipies online and they have sucked. So looking for real car guys inputs on recipies. Thanks

    I have never had any luck trying to cook my own Chinese food, always ends up mushy and bland. I have learned just to buy that favorite from the source

    I love me some good Chinese food. Pork Lo Mein is probably my favorite. Then Beef fried rice, steak teriyaki and crab rangoons. I miss the Chinese food back home in the NorthEast. It was so much better than this crap they call Chinese in the South. :screwup:

    You can't make it as cheap as most Asian joints sell it, its dirt cheap arounf here for a meal, just hunt down a decent place , they are everywhere.

    we have a place called ding how- its a mongolion bbq place, they have a nice set up, you get what you want, etc, they throw it on a huge circle grill and stir it with huge sticks, pretty neat. SO GOOD. OMG. delicious
