Tasty Chinese Stir-Fry Recipes

With traditional Chinese food, meals usually have two elements: a starch or source of carbohydrates like rice, noodles, or steamed bread, and an accompaniment such as meat, fish, or vegetables. Chinese stir-fry recipes offer something for everyone.

Bok choy has been cultivated in China for thousands of years. Our Beef and Bok Choy Stir-Fry recipe offers a scrumptious modern take, with Unsalted Beef Stock, sirloin steak strips, sliced water chestnut, and chopped Chinese cabbage.

Looking for another quick, delicious way to get your greens and protein? Dig into our Gluten-Free Stir-Fried Beef and Broccoli. Featuring Gluten-Free Brown Gravy Mix, it’s easy to make at home, ready to serve in half an hour with cooked rice.

Seafood lovers go wild for the Shrimp and Broccolini Stir-Fry, best-prepared with a wok or large frying pan. The scent of fried garlic and sesame seed is heavenly. Another can’t-miss option is Stir Fry Sesame Chicken and Vegetables, including sliced red pepper, onions, and snow peas – and we’ve got a gluten-free version of this Chinese food recipe as well.

Delicious Chicken Chinese Food Recipes

From traditional Chinese food to American takeout-style dishes, chicken is a mouthwatering mainstay of many Chinese food recipes.

Don’t miss Slow Cookers General Tso’s Chicken. The original General Tso’s Chicken recipe was created by Peng Chang-kuei, a chef from Hunan province, in the 1950’s. Our contemporary reinvention incorporates Slow Cooker Limited Edition General Tso’s Chicken Recipe & Seasoning Mix and French’s Ketchup. It’s a sweet and satisfying dish.

Fun fact: sweet oranges were first mentioned in Chinese literature in 314 BC. If you can’t get enough citrus goodness, Grilled Asian Orange-Ginger Chicken is one of the most delicious Chinese food recipes to make at home. Featuring grated orange peel, orange juice, and soy sauce, it comes alive with seasonings like Garlic Powder and Ground Ginger.
