Five kernel moon cakes are quite classic and have a long history. They can be said to be the “originator” of the moon cake industry. Many types of moon cakes have evolved from it today.

The so-called five-kernel moon cakes refer to moon cakes made from five kinds of “nuts”: walnut kernel, almond, olive kernel, melon seed kernel and sesame kernel. In other words, only 5 kinds of “nuts” must be included in the filling of moon cakes before they can be called “five-kernel” moon cakes.

For many elder generations, five-kernel moon cakes are full of memories that make them unforgettable. Therefore, they prefer to eat five-kernel moon cakes. They feel that it tastes full of fragrant taste, and the more they chew, the more fragrant it is, and the aftertaste is long.

However, although five-kernel moon cakes are classic, many of the young people today don’t like to eat five-kernel moon cakes. They feel that it has a strange taste, a bit hard, and it has a lot of fillings, and it tastes full of scum. It’s like dark dishes.

How to make China lanzhou ramen noodles

Rinse the beef stick bones and place them on the bottom of the pot, so that the meat will not stick to the bottom of the pot.

  • Rinse the beef and put it on top of the stick. I chose the beef brisket and the first half of the beef ribs. These two parts have fat and tendons, and the soup is very fresh. If you doesn’t use beef brisket, you can choose a little fat beef!
  • This is the beef breast meat, which is a delicacy among Lanzhou beef noodles!
  • Soak the beef in clear water for 4 hours. It can also be soaked for 2-3 hours. Basically, the water is changed every 1.5-2 hours. The blood water in the noodle shop is reserved for use, so we can skip this step of making it at home! The picture shows the soaking good beef. It must be soaked until the flesh is whitish! This is very important!
  • Put the soaked beef on the grate to control the moisture. The pre-processing of the meat must go through the four steps of one flush, two washing, three soaking and four controls. You can’t save one step!
  • The controlled meat can be boiled in a pot under cold water. Be sure to use cold water! As the heating process, you will slowly see dirty blood foam emerging, so patiently beat the foam until the soup is clear.
  • Add ginger slices and material packets.
  • Press a plate on top of the meat, let the whole meat soak in the soup, start to simmer, add salt after an hour! The cooking time varies from place to place, usually about 3 hours, turn it over in about an hour, let the material package give the meat at an even taste.
  • Boil the seasoning water while cooking the meat, take an appropriate amount of Lanzhou beef noodle soup, put it into the pot, add water to the pot, boil for about 30 minutes, leave the heat to clarify and set aside (more water, or it will take a long time to boil it dry).

After the soup is boiled, add sliced radish, butter and ginger garlic juice. Just add salt and chicken essence. Look at the pot of soup, how beautiful!You can choose machine noodles as noodles. For fine noodles, you must choose cylindrical ones. Of course, you can also choose wide leek leaves and so on, add some dietary alkali, the noodles will have the flavour of Lanzhou beef noodles when you cook. The main ingredients of the commonly used noodles are actually salt and alkali!

It is easy to control the heat and temperature, it is more convenient and safe to use. Such an electric hot pot is not easy to burn the pot and the electric heating element.

  • Power selection

When we are choosing electric hot pot, it is also very necessary to understand its power. The power can be selected according to the needs of the family population. At present, most of the electric hot pots on the market have power between 1000W and 2000W, with sufficient firepower and high power, relatively speaking, the electricity consumption will be relatively large. Therefore, it is recommended to pay attention to the socket and power cord when choosing. The power is matched to avoid tripping or short circuit. Generally, a normal family of three people can choose an electric hot pot with a power of 1500W, which is enough to use.

Hot pot soup

Basic soup

Choose chicken bones, shiitake mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, radishes and tomatoes. Of course, you can also add one or two pork bones or keel bones for better flavor. Every time I make a hot pot, I use a lot of chicken thighs, and the chicken bones must be left behind. At this point, it can be used together. When processing mushrooms, some unsightly or unpalatable parts can also be used as ingredients for soup. Some radishes that are cut badly are also used to make soup. Since hot pot needs a lot of meat products, some tomatoes will be added to relieve greasiness. Usually, I would suggest that you cook the bottom of the pot from the beginning of the preparation, while cutting and throwing the leftovers into the boiling soup. When the preparation is over, the flavor of the soup will be very good. (It is worth noting that it takes 40 minutes for 8 servings, and novices may have to increase the preparation time by 50%) At this time, it is recommended to add 70% of the soup and 70% of the hot pot base. Add boiling water to the soup part and continue boiling. When the soup base is not enough in the middle of the hot pot, add the remaining hot pot ingredients and the re-boiled soup to maintain a good soup base.

Hot-Pot Ingredients

What are the hot pot ingredients

  1. Meat

Such as beef and sheep pork, pig offal, pig tongue, pig liver, bacon, luncheon meat, hairy belly, yellow throat, duck intestine, chicken wings, crispy sausage, quail eggs, ham sausage, sausage, liver tendon, bullfrog and etc.

In fact, any meat is suitable for hot pot. Beef, pork and lamb are best sliced in advance (you can buy ready-made in supermarkets). These meats are generally ready to be eaten after a few seconds. Cut luncheon meat, ham and etc into thick slices.  

Beef is a must-have dish for hot pot, and fat beef is usually used in hot pot. If you can’t buy fat beef, you can use beef ribs or beef balls. It usually takes four to five minutes to cook the beef balls.

Lamb is also an indispensable meat. Like fat beef, the lamb usually used in hot pot is called fat lamb (meat on the thigh and shoulder of lamb). You can buy them in general supermarkets.

If you like to eat offal, pork offal, pork tongue and pork liver are best to put in the hot pot after removing the fishy smell in salt water or wine. If you can buy duck intestines at the vegetable market, when you cook them in a hot pot, remember the “seven ups and eight downs” method. Chop the duck intestines and boil them in the pot for one to two seconds, then pick them up, repeat eight times. The duck intestines cooked in this way are crispy in the mouth. 

Chinese seafood hot pot
  • Seafood

Such as crab meat, fish balls, fresh shells, oysters, squid, sea prawns, cod fillets and etc.

Like meat, there are many kinds of seafood that can be put in hot pot. There are two types of seafood here: one is fresh seafood, and the other is semi-finished seafood like fish balls.

Fish is usually cut into thin slices, because it cooks quickly, so it is best to put it in the hot pot after the filter spoon.

Shellfish. For example, shrimp, scallops, crabs, oysters, clams, mussels and shrimp are the most common side dishes. Usually shrimp and shells are cooked together (the head of the shrimp can be pulled out or not). Remember to put the shellfish ingredients in the water basin in advance to let them spit out the sand.

Squid and cuttlefish. Use both fresh and dried material. It can add unique flavor to the hot pot soup. If you use fresh cuttlefish, make sure it is cleaned. Dried squid is a bit more troublesome and needs to be soaked in water for 24 hours before using.

Fish balls and fish cakes. These kinds of ingredients are available in supermarkets, and the taste of fish balls is soft and smooth. Because the fish balls are already cooked, they don’t need to be cooked for too long (except for frozen fish balls). 

  • Vegetables

Such as white radish, carrots, tomatoes, winter bamboo shoots, lettuce, leeks, potatoes, yam, kelp, lotus root, cucumber, winter melon, lettuce, lettuce, baby cabbage, cabbage, spinach, cabbage, water spinach, broccoli, coriander and etc.

Seafood and meat are the protagonists of hot pot, but hot pot without vegetables is incomplete. Vegetables can not only relieve greasiness, but also enrich the taste of the soup. You can add any vegetables to the hot pot. I prefer those ingredients that can keep their texture after cooking for a long time. Leafy vegetables. For example, spinach, lettuce, wormwood and etc, the soup will be smashed as soon as it touches the soup, and it will be ready to cook for two or three minutes. This kind of vegetables will taste better in a clear soup pot. If you eat a spicy pot, the leaves will be covered with chili oil, which will taste more spicy. If you like spicy food, you can try it.

  • Mushrooms

Such as mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, eryngii mushrooms, fresh mushrooms, phoenix mushrooms, straw mushrooms, tea tree mushrooms and etc.

Larger mushrooms like shiitake mushrooms are best cut in half and then thrown into the hot pot. It takes 3-4 minutes for such mushrooms to cook. Enoki mushrooms are cooked quickly, about 30 seconds.

Chinese hot pot
  • Soy products

Such as soybean sprouts, mung bean sprouts, tofu, dried tofu, tofu skin, old tofu, oily tofu, yuba, konjac silk and so on.

6. Staple food

If you are afraid of not being full, use the remaining soup to cook the noodles after eating the above ingredients. You can add some hot pot noodles, instant noodles, sweet potato noodles, wide noodles, vermicelli, hand-rolled noodles, gluten and so on.

Essential ingredients for cooking hot pot

Vegetables are healthy foods that contain a variety of nutrients, such as iron, magnesium, vitamins, etc., and when eating meat dishes with some vegetables, it is not easy to feel greasy and can promote digestion. Therefore, when eating hot pot and green vegetables are indispensable, they can be cooked directly when they are eaten.
  • Sweet potatoes and potatoes. Hot pot is delicious, but some people worry that excessive food intake will lead to obesity. If so, you might as well eat sweet potatoes or potatoes before eating other dishes. These two ingredients are rich in starch and can increase the body’s fullness, so you don’t have to worry about eating too much. We can cut them into slices, rinse them in the soup and eat them soon.

3. Soy products. Soy products are rich in nutrients, such as calcium and protein. Therefore, if we eat hot pot at home, we can soak some tofu skins in advance, and put it on for the hot pot, which is simple and nutritious.

4. Fish and shrimp. Fish and shrimp are rich in protein, but not much fat is inhaled by the body. Therefore, if you are worried about gaining weight by eating meat, you don’t have to worry about this level if you eat fish and shrimp. However, it should be noted that some people are allergic to shrimp, etc., so choose carefully.

5. Chinese yam. Yam is rich in a variety of nutrients. It has a good health effect, can nourish the skin, improve eyesight, enhance memory, and also has a good nourishing effect on the kidneys. But pay attention to those with constipation, those people should eat less.

Chinese recipe: How to make bean curd?

This piece teaches you to make bean curd at home. We will shows you steps by steps of making it. The bean curd produced by this method is fragrant and tender. The key method is simple. Then we will tell you how to cook it.

bean curd

Bean curd is a yummy food that everyone eats often, and bean curd is used to make a variety of delicacies, but has anyone tried to make bean curd at home? Generally speaking, gypsum or brine is used to make bean curd, and the production process is more complicated. Therefore, most people choose to buy ready – made bean curd at the vegetable market to cook. Today, I will share a method of making bean curd. There is no need for gypsum or brine. You can make delicious bean curd by adding a little bit of common stuff at home, and the bean curd produced in this way is fragrant and tender, and the main production method is very simple.

Bean curd is the main raw material of vegetarian dishes in our country. It was unpalatable in the memory of the ancestors. After continuous transformation, it has gradually become popular with people and is known as “plant meat”. Bean curd is rich in nutrients, can prevent a variety of diseases and cancers, and is easier to become a dish; Cold salad, fried stew are good ways to eat.

Hand-made bean curd is clean, safe and very pure. Hand-made bean curd is actually very simple. Today, I used two methods to make it, one is bean curd with brine and the other is bean curd with white vinegar.

Bittern, a kind of food additive, is a commonly used coagulant for bean curd in the northern part of our country, which can condense the protein solution into a gel. Bean curd made with bittern as a coagulant has strong hardness, elasticity and toughness, and is called old bean curd, or northern bean curd or hard bean curd. The ingredients used in the bittern bean curd are: 750 grams of soybeans, 3750 ml of water, and 15 grams of bittern.

tofu bean curd

Steps for making bean curd:

Some bean curd with white vinegar, ingredients used: 750g soybeans, 3750ml water, 75ml white vinegar, 375ml diluted white vinegar water.

Step 1: Soak the soybeans in clean water for one day in advance, and let the soybeans soak to about 600g. At this time, everyone will find that there are some soybean grains that can’t be soaked. First, pick out these soybean grains and put them aside.

Step 2: Pour 1300ml of water into the bowl of soybeans, then pour the water and soybeans into the cooking machine and grind it into soy milk. Note that the soy milk should be polished a little longer, so that it will help to polish the soy milk more finely, and the resulting bean curd will be tender and delicious.

Step 3: After the soy milk is polished, you will find a lot of foam on it. Firstly, use a spoon to skim the foam on the soy milk, and then prepare a western gauze and put the soy milk on the western gauze to filter it bit by bit. After filtering twice, you will find a lot of bean curd residue on the gauze. After the bean curd residue is removed, you will get a pot of fine and fragrant soy milk.

Step 4: Pour the filtered soy milk into the pot and boil it on high heat. When the soy milk is boiled, turn it to a low fire and slowly simmer. When there are no bubbles on the surface, turn to the high heat and boil again, then turn off the heat and cool it aside.

Step 5: After the soy milk is cooled for a while, you will find a thin layer of soy skin on it. After picking it out, prepare 50ml of rice vinegar and pour it into the soy milk several times. Each time you pour the rice vinegar, use a spoon to gently stir. Once the rice vinegar is poured into the soy milk, put it aside and let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Step 6: After about 15 minutes, you will find that the soy milk slowly takes on the shape of bean curd. Pour it into a square container, cover it with a layer of gauze, and slowly press out the water and pour it out.

Step 7: After the water in the bean curd pressed almost at largely, put a heavier item on it (such as a water bottle or unopened milk). After standing for about half an hour, you will find that the bean curd is ready.

The bean curd produced in this way is exactly the same as the one bought outside, and it tastes more soy. People can try it by themselves if interested. The ingredients are easy to obtain, and there is no technical difficulty, and it can be made successfully in one time.

Chinese bean curd

Cooking tips for homemade bean curd:

  1. The ratio of soybeans to water when grinding soy milk should be 1:5. The soy milk produced by this ratio has a very strong soy flavor. If more water is added, the taste may be relatively weak;
  2. When making the bittern, use a spoon to push the soy milk into a small vortex, slowly drip the brine along the surroundings, until you see the bean curd, then reduce the frequency of pushing;
  3. The aging and tenderness of bean curd is determined by the amount of brine, the weight of the weight and the pressing time. The longer the pressing time, the firmer the taste of the bean curd;
  4. The bean curd brains from the brine are relatively large, and are firmer after pressing, with a strong bean flavor and a strong taste. The bean curd brains in the white vinegar are relatively fragmented, and the taste is loose and soft after pressing, and you can taste the sour taste. In daily home production, you can produce according to personal preference;
  1. When making soy milk, it is recommended to use a juicer or a cooking machine. This type of machine has a higher juice yield and a larger amount of soy milk. Generally, the capacity of household soy milk is limited, so you still need to make bean curd according to the required size.
