Motherfucking Chinese Food / Bruce Lee diet

So, I've had a lot of success lately with a "Bruce Lee" diet but I'm getting a bit tired of it. However, nutritionally it's fucking dope, and seems to work well for me. I can do like three variants of stir fry, beef with broccoli (sin starch), chicken on a stick, and mapo tofu when I feel ambitious, but I avoid things like dumplings and noodles.

I'm not picky on authenticity, more going for flavor and nutrition. Anybody have some suggestions for novel dishes that are also healthy Chinese food?

Check out Chinese cooking demystified on youtube.

It's a couple that live in China, and they're meticulous about the recipes. I've rarely actually replicated one of their recipes, but I've learned a ton of techniques and how to treat certain ingredients. Here's some vids you might like

I've never heard of the bruce lee diet, but I imagine it's lots of cantonese stuff, so: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC54SLBnD5k5U3Q6N__UjbAw/search?query=cantonese

Also, I love that graphic you posted. The youtube channel helps build on all of that, though.

You sould DEFINITELY get oyster sauce. That shit is delicious, easy, and there's not a lot to replace it.

I live in China and would probably benefit from watching some videos like this.

Shame I'm living in a god damned hotel and don't have a fucking kitchen.

Sichuan, but before that I lived in Guangdong for 2 years. Posted about it a couple of times on here, but not in a while.

lol not criticizing, the buns look great, but that pic on the left looks somehow so american, like "yeehaw we gonna BBQ some of that chyneeze food"

That is a distinctly unAmerican style bbq setup so I'm not sure what you're on about.

google image search shows it's from a malaysian restaurant.

I kinda see what he meant. At a glance it, kinda looks like a barrel smoker.

But It's not even a BBQ setup. That's just the steamer for the buns.

>BBQ isn't an American cooking style.
Barbecuing was probably one of the first cooking methods ever. Slow roasting, smoking, etc. Every meat-eating culture does it. They all have different methods, and different words. "Barbecue" is the english word, and has huge cultural significance in 'murica. There's like a dozen styles of murican BBQ.

Also interesting:
>The word barbecue comes from the language of a Caribbean Indian tribe called the Taino. Their word for grilling on a raised wooden grate is barbacoa. The word first appeared in print in a Spanish explorer's account of the West Indies in 1526, according to Planet Barbecue.

>Since then, the popularity of barbecues has spread like wildfire. The history of barbecuing in America dates to colonial times, and it has been a part of American culture ever since. In fact, one of the first laws enacted in the colony of Virginia during the 1650s forbade the discharge of guns at a barbecue.

I get that you're just being an edgy cunt, but... African Americans invented american-style BBQ and murican fried chicken. That's a fact, and both are influenced by african cooking. Of course asians love fried chicken and BBQ, but they're completely different styles (except when they're obviously influenced by american style, as in korea and japan).

Anyway, I used the OP image to make a meal tonight and it was spot on. The suggested meals are dumb, but the pro tips came out with aromatics and the sauces.

I've been making stir fry for a decade but the OP image is a great encapsulation of how easy it is to mix it up. Green onions are god, praise the ginger.
