Hunan Hooray!

This Month's Film: Raise the Red Lantern
Cuisine: Chinese

My Hunan Beef was another tasty success last night [although, dare I say it again?... still not as tasty as my Kung Pao Shrimp the night before.] Nevertheless, the sauce was glossy and smooth, the beef was tender and savory, the broccoli held its own in the stir-fry, and the balance of chili spice and tart vinegar was just right. Definitely a dish I will make again.

The recipes and photos for my 'Raise the Red Lantern' provincial Chinese menu will be posted at the end of the month.
