Mov Kib (Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage)

 

 

Fried Rice with Chinese sausage is a classic dish. Many Hmong people including myself love to add chili garlic sauce to the recipe for a more spicy garlic flavor. I preferably use sriracha hot sauce. adding this certain hot sauce takes fried rice to another whole level trust me on this!

Vietnamese sandwich

Preparation&Cooking: 15 minutes and overnight marinating

 

Hmong people love Vietnamese sandwiches, so don’t be surprised if you ever see a hmong person ordering 10 sandwiches at once because they’re most likely buying it for the whole family! 🙂 My favorite is grilled bbq pork sandwich. It’s actually a very simple sandwich to make that anyone could enjoy. Instead of buying a sandwich for three bucks each, save some money by learning how to make delicious grilled bbq pork sandwich at home for the whole family.

Deep Fried Catfish mixed in Tamarind Curry Sauce

Deef Fried Catfish
Preparation: 5 minutes. Cooking: ~15 minutes

 

Hmong love fish and tamarind as much as Thai do it’s no wonder Hmong people adore many Thai fish cuisine. This dish is a variation of Thai fried fish soaked in tomato tamarind sauce. My dad loves catfish, so I decided to fry catfish nuggets instead of a big fish. it’s cheaper and a lot more convenient to eat without without having to pick out fish bones.

Jajangmyun – Jajangmyeon – Chinese, Korean dish

This is my take on jajangmyun, in which i modified the recipe just a bit to fit our family’s taste. JaJangmyun is a very popular korean black bean noodle dish that has been showcased many times in Korean drama movies. It’s actually a very simple dish if you can find the right black bean paste (not black bean garlic sauce!) which are usually sold only at korean markets. they should only contain: wheat flour, soybean and maybe msg and preservatives. At other asian stores if it says black bean, and is a korean brand then you got the right stuff!

I love oven broiled fish stuffed with fresh herbs! It’s not just yummy but it’s really healthy.  Lao and Thai people use more herbs and seasonings but i just love the simple  way my parents make this fish dish. Some lemon grass, kaffir leaves, fresh mints are enough to give the fish  a wonderful aromatic and tasty flavor!

Preparation: 10 minutes. Cooking: 15 minutes
