One of my biggest weaknesses in my budget is take out Chinese food. It's not a food we have really made at home but something we crave regularly and break our budget on to order. So to save our budget I have put this list of 17 Chinese food recipes that are easy to make at home.
17 Must Try Chinese Food Recipes You Can Make at Home
I will say I am a fan of the Chinese food buffet because I can get a bit adventurous and try new foods. If I am un sure I stick to my tried and true fried rice ( no mushrooms please!) But at a buffet recently I fell in love with pepper steak and think it is my new favorite!
Until recently the closest I got to making any Chinese food recipes at home was a box of fried rice and tossing in some shredded chicken and calling it chicken fried rice. Easy and cheap but to save our budget I had to come up with a bit more than that. I found a great easy pepper steak recipes (#13!) for me, a general tso chicken my husband loves (#15!), and an orange chicken that my kids love (#16!).
