Boston-style Chinese Food recipes

Here is the recipe for fried rice, this is part of the recipes from Hytzipky. Thank you again Hytzipky.

Here you go........
PORK FRIED RICE
4-6 cups cooked rice
½ lb. (2-3 cups) bean sprouts
½ to ¾ cup frozen green peas
1 cup diced "cooked" pork (or "cooked" chicken if preferred)
8 medium shrimp (optional)
1-2 eggs
1-2 stalk diced scallions (separate white part from green end)
½ small can water chestnuts (sliced)
½ small can bamboo shoots (sliced)
1 tsp. sesame seed oil
3-4 tbsp. double dark soy sauce
2 tbs. hoisin sauce
3 tbs. apple sauce (optional)
2 tbsp. oil
⅓ cup oil
Peal and de-vein shrimp if you wish to add it to the rice. Slice 4-5 slices per shrimp (approx. ¼ inch slices). Dice cooked pork strip or boneless spare ribs (or boneless, skinless chicken breast) into approximately the same size pieces as the shrimp. Make sure you trim any excess fat from pork (or chicken). Place cooked, diced meat in a good-sized bowl. In another bowl, place ½ to ¾ cup frozen green peas. Cook up 2-3 cups of raw rice. This will yield about 4-6 cups of cooked rice.
Prepare wok by making the empty wok hot and then adding cool oil to it. Coat oil in wok. By adding the cool oil to the hot wok nothing will stick to the wok when you cook it. Put 1 clove of crushed garlic in hot oil. Add raw shrimp and cook for approx. 30 seconds. Remove shrimp. Scramble 2 eggs. Fry in the same liquid but spread the egg all around like a crepe. Turn over until cooked flat. Cut into strips and then into pieces. Add the egg to the cooked meat bowl.
Add about ⅓ cup oil to wok. Add white part of diced scallions. Add cooked bowl and fry for about 30 seconds. Add steamed or boiled rice. Stir together and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add 2-3 cups of bean sprouts, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. Continue to cook but turn the heat down a little. Add the peas. Add 14 shakes of dark soy sauce (or approximately 3-4 tbsp.) for color and taste. Taste it. Add the hoisin sauce and apple sauce (if desired). Cook about 5 minutes. Add approximately 1 tsp. sesame oil. Stir. Salt to taste if necessary.
MY OPINION: Very tasty. It's a meal in itself. You could add anything you want to this recipe. You can eliminate the meat/chicken for a vegetarian dish.

Please do not take ofense to this post, I mean no disrespect, I will be terribly sorry if I've hurt you. You took the time and effort to write this and we all appreciate it.

Although this recipe seem very simple, and probably is very good, but without the proper seasoning it sounds very bland, and truly not what us Bostonians are used to. The recipe I have that came from Hytzipky calls for dark soy sauce, hoisin sauce, apple sauce, it also adds bean sprouts, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. I can post the recipe I have if anyone wishes it in entirity. You could try both and see wich one you like.

Thank you, I can't wait to try the Pork Strip recipe. Can I get Char Sui sauce anywhere?

Hi Hytzipky,
I am new to this site, I accidently found it when I tried to find a recipe for Pork strips. We have lived in Fort Myers and Cape Coral for 8 years, I am from Chelsea, and my husband is from Revere, and as everyone else has said, can not find comparable Chines food. The spare ribs are acceptable, but when you ask for Pork strips they have no idea what you are talking about. I would love your recipe for pork strips, please. Thank You Ann
