What a REAL Chinese Home Cooked Meal in China Looks Like

  • Published on Oct 28, 2017
  • Hey Laowinners!
    The Patreons have voted and you guys wanted to see what an average, normal, everyday meal looks like in China. Chinese food is diverse, so we are covering Cantonese food today. We head to the wet market and buy all of our fresh Chinese ingredients, and head home to cook a normal Chinese meal. Vivi did her best!

    That looks like most of my suppers at home with the addition of 2-3 other dish. More vegetables, some tofu and sometime a meat dish. And we leave the rice in the cooker at the end of the day. It's only when therE's a small quantity left that we use it for fried rice.. And she'S completely right on the soya sauce. I used to take the north american one until my wife made me discover the taiwanese one. the taste is completely different.

    I'm a 45 year old Taiwanese American man. Watching this video bought me back to my childhood and teenage years. Watching you cook your family dinner was IDENTICAL to my mom. The preparation of the fish, the soup, veggies...everything. EVERY night I had a bowl of rice, a meat dish, a fish dish and vegetable dish.

    All I had was cabbage with every meal. Apparently, rice is a luxery item in China. Cabbage is the mainstay, not rice, according to my host family. Chicken was available though.

    i'm actually shocked to see not much actually went in the soup. i dont know much about chinese soups so maybe thats why but i'm used to seeing a lot of stock in soup. seeing one lonely pork cut in a whole soup made me think "wait wheres the soup".

    Wait someone explain in another vid when they were visiting America she joked about being shocked when her sister-in-law offered her water from the tap. Because Chinesse tap water is unsafe, yet she is freely washing all the food in tap water.

    I think washing the rice, what it really does is remove excess starch from it before cooking. It turns out better the more you wash it. I know that Sushi rice is washed 2 or 3 times before it’s cooked. You can see the starch start to separate from the rice when the water turns a light cloudy white color. Ideally you could rinse and stir rice with your hand until the water runs clear.

    • Rockin’ Pixels

      In all of the asian cooking stuff I’ve watched here on youtube they always recommend washing the rice before cooking. Even professional chefs. Everyone stands by it turning out better that way.

    “There’s poop and pee in all the vegetables” WHAT? “We put poop and pee in all the vegetables” (as she’s washing them anyway)
