This drawing is now closed. Anyone who ever reads my blog knows what a big fan I am of The Chinese Takeout Cookbook. A few of the recipes have turned into my go-to standards, such as the cold sesame noodles. So I’m really happy to be holding a drawing for a copy of the book, open to anyone who lives in the US or Canada and posts a comment below by midnight on April 29th. A random winner will be chosen (thanks to the publisher for the book). About this recipe, it’s the Sichuan Dry-Fried Beef, another winner. Of course I turned it gluten-free, but it was easy this time because I just had to substitute in some gluten-free soy sauce. Okay, so I also spiced it up a lot with several more dried chilies than what author Diana Kuan calls for. But besides that, it’s fun to make and super easy, and of course it tastes better than anything you’re going to get at your local Chinese take-out restaurant. Just don’t forget to make a big bowl of white rice to go with it.
