Our family loves Chinese food, and I have been known to go all out at least once a year and make a huge feast in our home for family and friends! I’m always on the look-out for delicious recipes to add to these Chinese Dinner Menu Ideas, so that everyone feels they are at a Chinese Buffet! 

Yes, it’s a lot of work, but if you do as much preparation as possible ahead of time, things go more smoothly.

I’ll plan the menu out on paper, deciding what steps I can do ahead of time in an effort to save myself from that last-minute craziness. And it does help. But there’s no stopping it. It’s always crazy at the last minute. Especially when you’ve created this four-course dinner for ten that includes Egg Drop Soup, Fried Egg Rolls, Crab Rangoon, Fried Rice and two-three main dishes–because not everyone may like Beef Teriyaki!

This year, our family is going to do a Chinese Potluck Dinner, where each couple brings a dish or two to the dinner. I think this idea is going to work wonderfully. If you enjoy Asian cuisine or Chinese food, I hope you will give some of these recipes a try! They are some of our favorites!

Making your own Egg Rolls calls for a bit of work, but it is well worth the effort. My family loves them–even more than those at restaurants. These little gems are filled with sausage and well seasoned vegetables, and are then fried in deep fat for a crispy golden shell.
