Sue and I missed out on posting about our Chinese New Year Dinner last year so we wanted to have lots of photos and recipes for this year.
2015 is the year of the Ram/Sheep/Goat in the Chinese zodiac.
We went with some of our favorites and some new dishes and everything turned out pretty darn tasty.
For the dishes that we are sharing the recipes - there will be a link to the separate post where you will be able to find more photos and the recipe. Just click on the name of the dish and it should take you there.
Let's start with our appetizer. Asian Inspired Cream Cheese Dip. (Click HERE for the recipe).
Our second appetizer was some crunchy spring rolls from sister Orra. We don't have her recipe but this is a link to our Baked Egg Rolls, which are similar. (Click HERE for the recipe)
And then on to dinner....
We had some delicious Chicken Chow Mein using our Double Happiness Chow Mein recipe but different noodles. Click HERE for that recipe.
And, because we had some gluten free people at the dinner, we also had Veggie & Rice Noodle Stir Fry. (Click HERE for the recipe.)
Speaking of veggies. We also had a veggie chop suey. Unfortunately it got a teeny bit over cooked whilst being kept warm on the stove. Fortunately it was still very tasty!
And... it wouldn't be a Chinese New Year Dinner without rice. We went with white rice cooked with Chinese sausages. If you haven't tried Chinese sausage and rice then I definitely recommend it.
So so so so good.
As for meat dishes... Sue outdid herself this year.
We will definitely share the recipes for these 2 amazing dishes.
The first one is Char Siu-Style Ribs. (Check back for that link soon!)
And, second, Sue whipped up some A-to the-Mazeing Mongolian Beef. (Check back soon for that link soon!)
I think the Mongolian Beef was probably my favorite!
Lastly, for dessert we made some adorable little sheep pies to help celebrate the year of the sheep/ram/goat. (Click HERE for full photo tutorial/how to)
We hope you liked our 2015 Chinese New Year Dinner recipes.
Kung Hei Fat Choy everyone!
