Chinese takeout is great… in theory. But so often the flavours are insipid, the sauces are watery or non-existent and the meat is tough, grey and chewy. My recipes for Chinese takeout classics are so much better! I’m using my brand new Mako wok to make three iconic Chinese dishes: egg fried rice, lemon chicken and black pepper beef. It’s homemade, but Chinese restaurant-quality worthy.

  1. Never tried, so silly question. But I thought the "wok flavour" is because of the flame. Has anyone achieved it on an electric hotplate/stove or is getting a wok pointless when you have no gas?

  2. Everytime we eat out even at reputable restaurants which charge big bucks, I always have stomach bug for days. Their offerings have declined in quality too after COVID. So homecooking it is everyone if you want to eat really well.

  3. I'm ordering Chinese tonight! I haven't decided what to get yet, the last two times I've had sweet and sour pork but I'm in the mood for something different. Thinking maybe the seafood special with curry sauce!

  4. Love your vids and been following you for a while. Don't steer away from your style! Seeing the influence of these other "chefs" on your style it's disappointing. Keep your content wholesome. Thank you!!!

  5. hi, how can I ask you questions on a dish I want to make but I can't find videos on it. I want to do a beef rendang but I want to do it on a whole prime rib. I guess the first question is, if its okay to do it this way? and if so how can I make it, thanks!

  6. These are all stolen materials done by the Singapore police in robberies, drug trafficking, prostitute trafficking under Chan Sek keong, Chan Wei Hong, NG Joo Hee, Melvin YONG Yik Chye, WONG kan Seng, Halimah YACOB, Masagos Zukifli with CalCarries, MediaCOP, your WARs in the USA and Europe were all plotted by these Irish democrats tied to Kate Middleton and Megan Markle with Elizabeth2 and her indian, Rosemary Gosling and Barack Obama with LIN-YIH, Tan Chuan Jin, Tharman, Vivian Balakrisnan, and the rest of Li Hsien Loongs ministers since early 90s, they loot to fund personal expenses and all your WARs for two terms of Obamas presidency, Li Hsien Loong plotted all your wars with the police looting CCTVs to Fann WONG, Jeanette AW, Kate Middleton and Megan Markle, she reproduced all these stolen items done by Singapore Police behind all your WARs as a Cover up for themselves, before depleting the tax payers cash or bank reserves during the pandemic

  7. Wow so yummy 😋😋😋 thank you so much Marion your cocking is very very good I'm going to cook tonight for dinner ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  8. Delicious 😋 I am going to cook the black pepper steak for tonight’s dinner and lemon chicken with fried rice for Tuesday night dinner. I love how you the food in your MAKO WOK.🧑‍🦳

  9. 100% Marion, I’ve always said it, you can’t beat home made cooking……there’s no comparison, always make it at home because you know what’s in there 👍
    Cheers 🥂🇦🇺

  10. So right Marion I always use baking soda when sauté beef and natural tenderize and always soak beef in baking soda and water makes the beef fresher and tender

  11. Wonderful, Marion!!! Waiting on my Wok!!! I am so happy you designed one. I have been looking for years, really, from all of the Asian cooks on you tube but nothing ever resonated with me until yours. Because you ARE my favorite Asian chef & Asian you tube channel!!! I was so delighted when you published your cookbooks (I’ve got both) & super delighted when you re-released your first cookbook. I’ve kept searching eBay for it for literally years!!! I ordered it with my wok!!! Thank you!!! Merry Christmas!!! 🎄♥️♥️🎄🤗🤗🎄🌺🌺🎄
