Easy Chinese Recipes
Give dinner an Asian spin with classic and modern recipes using traditional ingredients, including soy sauce, rice vinegar, and fresh ginger.
Spicy Beef and Broccolini Stir-Fry
This one-dish meal is ready in 20 minutes, so it’s on the table faster than had you ordered Chinese takeout. If you have a wok, now’s the time to use it, but a large skillet will work just fine. Because you don’t want the spice from the Fresno chile to overpower the dish, be sure to look for a small pepper. If you prefer no heat at all, use a sweet pepper instead. If you’re hoping to start your meal prep on Sunday, cook the rice ahead of time. Then, simply reheat when you’re ready to serve.
