Roast Duck – Seasoned and Stuffed

Roast Duck

This Roast Duck is Fantastic

Here’s a Roast Duck recipe that I would highly recommend.  It’s very easy to prepare and the taste is out of this world.  I stuff the duck with a wonderful array of aromatic flavors that completely permeates the breast from the inside out when it marinates and bakes and I Salt the outside with Kosher and Smoked Paprika, leaving you with an irresistible taste and an unforgettable experience.

Chang’s uses on their Cantonese Duck and Chicken recipes.  I also have recipes for Beer Can Chicken, a Tin Can Chicken Brine and a tutorial to teach you How to Carve Whole Poultry.

Grocery Shopping – Ingredients for Oriental Recipes

Believe it or not, it’s so easy to shopping for ingredients for Oriental recipes.  I’d dare say, it’s even fun.  You get so much culture in such a little place and sometimes its just really nice to get out of my comfort zone only to realize it can be just as comfortable somewhere else.

The folks at this 1st Oriental Market are amazing people.  They’re so eager to help with all your needs.  And I find that this is common just about anywhere I go when it comes to foreign food.  People like to share their experiences and culture.  I find that it isn’t any different here and the owner, Earl and his wife, make it a real pleasant experience.

Most Oriental Cooking, these days, is very simplified because almost all of the guess work has already been cut out for you.  I don’t have to make every individual sauce that is used to combine with other sauces to make one great recipe.  For example: when a recipe calls for Hoisin Sauce, you don’t have to make you’re own Hoisin Sauce from scratch(which would require several other ingredients), you just crack open a bottle.  And what about Plum Sauce… could you imagine having to make that beforehand too?  Both of these ingredients are in my Chinese Barbecue Sauce recipe, which only has 5 or 6 ingredients: Hoisin, Plum Sauce, Ketchup, Sugar, 5 spice powder etc., and that makes it really simple just buying each one of those premade bottles.  But, could you imagine having to make all of those ingredients as well?  You’d be making ingredients for your ingredients.

That being said, I would just like you to understand and realize that you don’t have to learn translations of ingredients you’ve probably never heard of in the first place.  Because, most of the basic ingredients I show you in this video are very versatile to most of the popular Americanized Oriental recipes that you’re likely familiar with anyway.

So get familiar with the few I show you now and I’ll introduce more as we go and you’ll be a pro before you know it!

Chinese Barbecue Sauce – P.F. Chang’s China Bistro Recipe

The Best Barbecue Sauce

This Chinese Barbecue Sauce is based on P.F. Chang’s recipe which is used in several different menu items, including: Spare Ribs, Pork Medallion and their Barbecue Chicken Salad.  I’ve taken the exact Restaurant size recipe and dumbed it down to a house hold portion.  And when I said this recipe is “based” on the Corporate recipe, I mean, it’s more or less the exact same one, only I cut the sugar in half.

The Barbecue Sauce Breakdown

Chang’s makes 5 gallons of this sauce at a time and 2 1/2 gallons of it is sugar.  That’s just ridiculous.  Half of their recommended sugar amount still gets you a fantastic BBQ sauce.  So rest assured, knowing now, that you have everything you need to know about the China Bistro’s Barbecue Sauce Recipe!

I’ve also got their Spare Rib Recipe and their Northern Style Short Ribs Ribs recipe already filmed and posted below.  And if you’re interested in my Oven Baked Ribs, those are listed here as well.
