My Chinese New Year Party Food 新年辦桌 – what to cook

Chinese and Taiwanese New year is coming along shortly! One of the big questions that many people will have is what dishes to prepare. One of the best places to find traditional and New Year Taiwanese dishes is Taiwan Cooking on YouTube. It’s my mother’s site and she loves to cook – a lot.

She recently held an early New Year lunch party and made a huge amount of great food for the day. Many Taiwanese sisters managed to share a great, happy, warm New Year together! Please have a look at the wonderful range of food she prepared in the video I have embedded below.

How to make Spring Rolls 春捲 for Taiwanese, and Chinese, New Year

Here’s some great Spring Rolls my mother made. These are beef and onion ones but you can alter the recipe to include any sorts of other fillings including the likes of pork, chicken, bamboo and bean sprouts – whatever you like. Chinese (Taiwanese) New Year is almost here and these would be a great addition to your dinner table spread!

Please watch the video and you will be able to see the cooking method and technique for making beautiful, golden crispy spring rolls at home – using the best ingredients from your local shops.

In my mother’s recipe the following ingredients were used:

  • 500g beef mince,
  • sliced spring onions,
  • spring roll pastry,
  • salt, pepper,
  • egg for ‘glue’
  • sesame oil, rice wine, a little sugar
  • + dipping sauce made from ketchup, lemon & sugar

As mentioned above you can change the contents to suit your own taste and also you might like to use chilli or sweet chilli in the dipping sauce. Hope you like it!
