Food is an important part of the Chinese Lunar New Year celebration and certain foods are included for their symbolic value: noodles are served for longevity, oranges for wealth and prosperity and a whole fish for abundance and togetherness. The Chinese New Year began on January 23, 2012 and ushers in the Water Dragon. The year promises to be full of excitement, exhilaration and also lots of celebration!
I received a variety of specialty Asian products from HOUSE of TSANG® to create a Chinese New Year feast to celebrate this holiday. HOUSE of TSANG® would also like to offer one of you the opportunity the chance to win the same products I was able to review, all valued at $25.
HOUSE of TSANG® products to sample and use to create a meal:
- House of Tsang® Bangkok Padang Peanut Sauce
- House of Tsang® General Tsao Sauce
- House of Tsang® Ginger Flavored Soy Sauce
- House of Tsang® Sesame Seed Oil
- House of Tsang® Sweet & Sour Stir Fry Sauce
- House of Tsang® Hibachi Grill Sauce Kobe Steak
- Chopstick Gift Set
With the sauces above I made beef and broccoli! I marinated the beef in kobe steak sauce for an hour before I cooked it. The sauce smells just like a hibachi restaurant! I made general tsao chicken with peapods and carrots. I also made sweet and sour chicken with the sweet and sour sauce and I mixed in red peppers and pineapple. We had rice with our meal as well and used the ginger soy sauce. I also used a little bit of the sesame seed oil in everything I cooked! The only thing I didn't use was the peanut sauce. I wasn't sure what to make with it! Have any of you ever cooked with peanut sauce? I'd love to hear what you used it on! We also had some Trader Joe's potstickers! Everything was delicious and we will for sure keep using these sauces! The chicken meals were my favorite!
Here is all of our yummy food!!
If you want a chance to win all the sauces and the pretty set of chopsticks just leave a comment!
