There's something about good Chinese takeout. I can taste that slightly spicy and velvety, finely-sliced beef and the crisp, crunchy broccoli with a hint of ginger maybe. Followed by satisfying, sticky rice to cleanse the palate.

1 lb hanger steak, thinly sliced against the grain
1/4 c rice wine vinegar
1/4 c peanut oil - or any neutral oil with a high smoking point
12 oz chopped broccoli or chopped green asparagus
6 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 c oyster sauce
1 Tbsp Sambal oelek - or your favorite chili sauce
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger - optional
2 c rice
2 (with a chance of leftovers)

One of the most amazing things about this absolutely delicious one-pan chicken pasta dish is the consistency of the sauce.

2-4 chicken thighs, depending on size
12 oz pasta
4 c chicken stock - or 4 c water and two Knorr chicken bouillon cubes
1 Tbsp canola oil - or any neutral oil
1 tsp salt, plus salt to taste
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1 shallot, finely chopped
14 oz can of diced tomatoes - or 1 c chopped fresh tomatoes
1 c chopped vegetables - I found an asparagus in the garden
4 basil leaves, shredded - that's what they call chiffonade in fancy cookbook slang
2 oz shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano - or other hard cheese
