Molasses is the Secret Ingredient for Making that Tasty Brow Chinese Macaroni you Only Dreamed Of.


Ever wondered what to put in that macaroni to make it look and taste exactly like the one you ate at the Chinese restaurant/buffet?  I did. First, I thought soy sauce was the secret, turns out it is only part of the solution.  Way too salty to be the only ingredient browning the macaroni… hum… let’s Wordpress it!

Here you go, finding this amazing and easy recipe, ready in 1/2 hour (4 servings):

  • 1 1/2 Cup of raw vegetables sliced or chopped (put more if you like but you will have to adjust the liquid)
    • My macaroni will have anything that is left in the fridge: celery, mushrooms, green and red peppers, zucchinis, onions, cauliflowers.
