I know Christmas is over, but I’ve got a few more Jewish Chinese hybrid recipes for you. Jew are welcome! I’m a Jew who likes Christmas. Though not for the traditional reasons. I mean mistletoe, eggnog and sparkly lights are great and all, but I’m in it for the Chinese food. Like other Chosen People on this lonely day, I indulge in whatever action flick is in the theaters, and as much moo shu and fried rice as I can handle.
Growing up, it was all about Cheng Du take out, but these days I make my own. This year I made some pot stickers with a nod to my favorite sandwich- pastrami on rye! Fried and served with a spicy mustard, these are seriously addictive. And the best part is when you are hungry again an hour later, all you have to do is fry a few more!
