Gong Bao Chicken – Dini’s Kosher Restaurant

Owner: Chabad Beijing | Location: Beijing, China | Yield: 4 servings | Category: meat

 

At Dini’s, Beijing’s only kosher restaurant, the chefs cook authentic Chinese food along with traditional Jewish dishes and Western favorites that travelers expect (there’s a sushi bar too). The restaurant is named for Dini Freundlich, the local Chabad shlucha. Local Chinese residents also enjoy eating at Dini’s because they feel that kosher food is
Gong Bao Chicken LR safer to eat; the Chinese term for kosher is “Jie Shi,” “clean food.”

1 lb chicken breast, cubed

3 Tbsp cornstarch

2 Tbsp water

Pinch coarse black pepper

oil, for frying

2 Chinese leeks or scallions

3 Tbsp salted peanuts

Sauce:

2 tsp soy sauce

2 Tbsp sugar

4 tsp vinegar

2 tsp hot sauce

4 tsp ketchup

Place chicken into a small bowl. Sprinkle with cornstarch; top with water and black pepper. Mix to coat the chicken. Let stand for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a wok or sauté pan over high heat. When oil is very hot, add chicken cubes in batches; fry for 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.

Drain oil from the pan. Add soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, hot sauce, and ketchup. Cook until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 minutes. Add chicken and scallions; toss to coat. Top with peanuts.

Tidbit: Dini makes her own version of hot chili sauce to use in the restaurant. She says it’s the Asian equivalent of Israeli red schug.

Home Cook: We’ve tested this with all different types of hot sauce and they’ve all been successful. Halve the quantity if serving this dish to children -L.

Savory Hamantaschen

Recipe from Fresh and Easy Kosher Cooking by Leah Schapira. Copyright ArtScroll/Mesorah Publications. 

Click here to download a printable version of Savory Hamentashen on The Official ArtScroll Blog

Ingredients:

4 (10-inch circles) frozen malawah dough

2 tbsp honey

3 cloves garlic

1 full tbsp salt

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp apple juice

3 chicken cutlets, cubed

¼ cup red bell pepper, finely diced

oil, for frying

Apricot Dipping Sauce

1 cup apricot jam

2 tbsp mustard

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp honey

Instructions: 

  1. In a medium bowl, combine honey, garlic, salt, soy sauce, and apple juice. Marinate chicken in mixture for a minimum of 30 minutes. Add the diced red pepper.
  2. Remove malawah dough from freezer to begin defrosting.
  3. When dough has slightly defrosted (approximately 10 minute after removing from freezer), use a cookie cutter to cut out 2º-inch circles. Defrost circles for an additional 5 minutes. Using a rolling pin or pressing down with your hands, roll the dough circles slightly until they are 3Ω inches wide.
  4. Place a heaping teaspoonful of chicken mixture into the center of each circle. Pinch the edges together to form a hamentash.
  5. Heat a thin layer of oil in a skillet or frying pan. Add hamentashen to pan, filled side down. Fry over medium-low heat for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through or until golden (the heat needs to be low enough so the chicken is cooked before the dough browns).
  6. To prepare dipping sauce, add all ingredients to a bowl and stir to combine thoroughly.
  7. Serve hamentashen warm with dipping sauce.

They Won’t Be Bored This Summer: Kids Cooking Made Easy + Giveaway!

Scroll down to the end of the post for instructions on entering a giveaway for a free copy of Kids Cooking Made Easy!

This summer, keep your kids busy in an educational and fun way: introduce them to the kitchen!

kcmep

My mother always said that hungry children are cranky children. Bored, hungry, cranky…these are the less exciting aspects of having children on vacation for three months. But we have a solution: introduce the kids to the joys of cooking with Kids Cooking Made Easy!

There’s a great educational aspect to cooking and following a recipe. As explained by the authors, Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek. “Kids Cooking Made Easy is a picky eater solution,” says Victoria Dwek. “Kids either become more open-minded when they see how something is prepared, or they learn to prepare their own favorites.” Aside from kitchen skills, learning to cook has hidden educational benefits. As Leah Schapira points out, “Children learn about math and fractions when following a recipe.” They also learn to read and follow instructions – all while having a good time!

Chock full of exciting summer recipes such as Teriyaki Beef Sticks, Peach and Mango Salad and Creamsicle Sorbet and fun crafts and edible activities such as Edible Sand Art and Homemade Button Candy, this book will be a delight for your children and a lifesaver (or at least sanity saver!) for you.

Here’s a sample recipe for you and your kids to enjoy. Make sure to scroll past the recipe for a chance to win a copy of Kids Cooking Made Easy!
