Combined Recipes

What this Means

One thing I’ve never been too keen on is filming recipes twice for different videos. For example, If I added up the times I used my Blackened Seasoning in a video and had to refilm how I make it, each and every time, I would lose my mind. That’s why I always mention that I already have a video to teach you how to make it, so you can refer to it after you learn the recipes at hand.

The problem is, I’ve always wondered if that bothered people… having to go look up another recipe just to complete the one they’re interested in. I make it super simple, though. I always place a link at the end of the video and always in the video description and/or on my blog page where you can find the exact ingredients.

The point is, I’ve decided to combine several recipe videos into one video, so that you get everything you need in one video. In truth, I’ve been leading up to this all along. So you might see a video or two that you have viewed before pop up as a “New” video but they’ll be extremely relevant. Especially since the majority of these videos only have a few thousand views so, it’s very likely you haven’t seen most of them.

I’ll be putting together videos like the ones I’m including in this post, as well as the examples I’m listing below, and many others.

Country style BBQ Ribs = No Bake Boston Beans
Seafood and Crab + Red Chili Sauce = Seafood Enchiladas
Sweet and Sour Sauce + Chinese Fry Batter = Sweet and Sour Pork, Shrimp or Chicken
Fried Rice Noodles = Mongolian Beef & Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Steamed Clams=Stuffed Clams + Clam Chowder + Clam Dip + Clam Sauce
Pot Stickers + Shrimp Dumplings = Pot Sticker Dipping Sauce
Roast Beef = Roast Beef Stroganoff
Naan = Shrimp or Chicken Tikka Masala
Wonton Soup + Red Sauce Wontons
Homemade Pasta = Alfredo Sauce, Vodka Sauce, Pesto, Bolognese

Hot and Sour Soup

One bowl of Hot and Sour Soup.

The Best Hot and Sour Soup

This soup became one of my all time favorite Asian recipes almost 25 years ago. My cooking training originated in a Chinese Bistro so I learned how to cook Chinese food, right. Much like Sweet and Sour sauce, this soup has a hot and sour combination. The heat comes from the rice vinegar, chili paste and white pepper and you can add as little or as much of each ingredient you want.

In this recipe I use Beef broth to achieve a flavor that, to me, seems richer than using the traditional chicken broth. Because I use 2 quarts in this recipe, it might be a good idea to use one of each if you prefer your soup a bit more fare or just chicken broth altogether.

6 whole shitake mushrooms weighing approximately 8 oz altogether.

The vegetable base is a simple mix of carrot, bamboo shoots, black fungus, Shitake mushrooms and spring or green onion. I use firm tofu, cut into cubes, for the protein but it’s not uncommon to add thinly sliced and pre-cooked pork or chicken. If you’d like, you can ditch the protein altogether, even.

I want to stress the importance of NOT substituting the Rice Vinegar for any other. It will not taste the same. Rice vinegar is salty and has almost a Fish Sauce quality to it. So using plain white, apple cider or even black Chinese Vinegar is not going to achieve the taste you’d expect from your local Chinese Buffet, Restaurant or take out.

The video will teach you everything else you need to know, including the secret to making those amazing Egg Ribbons we all love so much in our Egg Drop and Hot and Sour soups. If you’re interested in other Asian Soup recipes, check out my Miso Soup, Wonton Soup or my Red Sauce Wonton’s recipe.
