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)

This headline may sound like an exaggeration, but it's not. This recipe perfectly fuses the chicken's flavor and texture with a deep-flavored, umami-rich broth. And the best part…actually the two best parts are: It tastes like you cooked this for four hours & it takes less than an hour from start to finish.

4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin on - about 1.5 lbs
3 Tbsp canola oil - or any neutral oil
2 c chicken stock
1/2 c red wine
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
10 oz mushrooms, sliced
10 oz fresh spinach, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno, finely sliced
1 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 (plus leftovers, maybe..)
