This stir fry is very quick and good. If you’re in a rush to make dinner, this common Hmong stir fry couldn’t get any easier! Make sure to serve with white steamed rice.
Wonton Soup is a beautifully crafted Chinese soup for the soul. Hmong people like to make won ton soup with green mustards instead of bok choy. The best wonton soup I ever had was made by my second older sister Christina. What made her wonton soup special is the enoki mushrooms.
Papaya salad is a favorite shared asian dish of southeast asia. It has Lao and Thai roots but everyone makes it a bit different from one another. Hmong people make their papaya most similar to Lao and Thai people. You could even say Hmong papaya fuse a little of both Lao and Thai style together in Hmong papaya salad. This dish is stinky in a good way and quite addictive. Often times, people rush to the Hmong new year festivals just so they can buy some papaya salad. Make sure to choose a nice large (ripe) green papaya for this dish.
Growing up my parents made this dish often for the family and no one cooks it better than they do. Here is a simpler version of sautéed chicken recipe for you and your family to enjoy Make sure to serve with some white steamed rice.
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.
This is a traditional Hmong dish. My dad tells me that the Hmong in Asia often grew cabbages but I’ve been introduced to this dish only recently and it’s probably because my mom never enjoyed the smell of steamed cabbage so never bothered to make it. The first time I actually had cabbage rolls were when a college friend brought lunch after a class we had together. I didn’t know what they were but they tasted great especially with the Hmong pepper sauce.
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!
