As far as I’m concerned, one of the chief differences of really delicious Chinese food and home cooked Chinese food is the complexity delivered by blending soy sauce, dry sherry, and rice wine vinegar with garlic, ginger and chiles. Martin Yan taught us this in Yan Can Cook. Remember?
I still believe it today! When I developed hormone positive breast cancer and need to ditch soy, my heart sank, cuz it meant I had to limit eating Chinese food out at restaurants. But thanks to having dry sherry in the pantry and always having dried, fresh and pickled ginger on hand along with garlic and coconut aminos to replace soy – I no longer have to live a life devoid of delicious Chinese food!
I use dry sherry in everything from Cajun FauxTurtle Soup and other Cajun specialties, to delicious savory meat dishes and pan sauces and in the obligatory Chinese Food.
