“Want to cook with Chinese flavors, but not sure which flavorings you really need? Start with soy sauce and toasted sesame oil - they're the most frequently called for ingredients in a range of Chinese-style dishes, like this simple stir-fry. Toasted sesame oil lends a delightful, unmistakable Chinese flavor but must be used sparingly. Store it in the refrigerator to preserve freshness. (From Betty Crocker's "Money Saving Meals" cookbook).”
