Chinese Dinner Experiment - Part II

Joe and I were at IKEA Sunday afternoon and they just happened to have those cool Chinese soup bowls and spoons on the cheap, so we picked them up for the dinner. Also, I had picked up some pretty chopsticks on clearance at PierOne a while back and decided it was time to put those to use.

We had a great time preparing the dishes and a nice, relaxing dinner. If you like Chinese food, you've got to try the egg flower soup and kung pao beef recipes...they are both wonderful! The soup was just as good any restaurant soup and the beef dish was SO good. If you try the beef dish, make sure you get the cut of beef called for in the recipe (flank steak) because it was very tender. I don't really recommend the chicken recipe, it was our least favorite.

We had such a nice evening, I think this needs to be a regular thing.

AWESOME! I think "Chinese Cooking" night is awesome. Thanks for the great photos. How did the spring rolls turn out? How did you cook them? You have inspired me to make a dish or two! Thanks for the links too!
Glad you had a fun and relaxing night!!
