Home cooked Chinese food is so different from what is offered in your typical Chinese restaurant. I can honestly say that my mom has never, ever made Orange Chicken, Moo Shoo Pork, or Sweet and Sour Pork for us...and she is as authentic as it gets.
Real homemade Chinese food is much lighter and not soaked in five layers of oil by any means. In any meal, there are usually a few different dishes, some meat, some veggies, some mixed.
This is very a basic stir-fry recipe that can be mixed and matched with various meats and veggies. The measurements are all approximates, and since it's light on basic seasonings, feel free to tweak to your own liking. Love sesame oil? Drizzle a little more to finish off the dish! Like salty? Throw in a little more soy sauce! Love spicy? Throw some sriracha in there! Love sesame oil? Drizzle a little more to finish off the dish! Use your creativity, and use those tastebuds!
