15 Favorite Chinese Takeout Recipes to Make at Home

Beef and Broccoli by Table for Two

As a kid, ordering Chinese takeout was a real treat. We usually ate home-cooked meals every night. Fast forward a few decades later. I moved to New York City, where ordering Chinese food—or any food—became a reflex action. Seriously, how could I cook in a bite-sized kitchen?

At PBS Parents, I was lucky enough to connect with Alice Currah. Through her recipes on this blog, I learned that many popular dishes ordered in Chinese restaurants can easily be recreated at home. It costs less, and it’s healthier.

Our family still eats out—probably more than we should. But, my kids have given homemade Chinese a thumbs up, which inspires me to try more recipes, more often. I hope the incredible collection below inspires you to try too.
