Product Description


I ve had my eye on the Cranberry-Hoisin Chicken recipe in Simply Ming One-Pot Meals by Ming Tsai and Arthur Boehm (Kyle Books) for a long time. The introduction says it s the "perfect dish for entertaining," and I have no reason to dispute the claim.--Barbara Revsine "ChicagoNow, 1/2/14 ""

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Recipe Book for Even A Novice Cook interested in Asian Fusion 29 Jan. 2011
By Mama2babynpuppy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I often don't know what the heck cook books are telling me to do. I was looking for healthy and affordable recipes that I could actually follow and would have good and interesting flavor, preferably Asian, so I bought this book. My husband is Chinese and his parents are fabulous Chinese cooks. I am not Chinese and I am not a fabulous cook. This recipe book has worked for us and I feel more capable as a cook every time I use it. I've had it for about 10 days and I've made 5 recipes from it. I'm really pretty novice in the kitchen, but Ming Tsai's simple instructions work for me.
What I really like that is unique about this book:
1. It is organized in a useful and intelligent way in chapters based on cooking style rather than meat or dish type. I love that. When I need a quick dish, I look in the wok or high temp section. When I have some time, braise or roast. As I type this, my first EVER braise is cooking away. I'm excited. I've never found a recipe I trusted enough to try braising. I've never BOUGHT short ribs before. The "aromatic short ribs with root vegetables" that is boiling away smells so good. It doesn't smell like my kitchen -- in the past.
2. My favorite chapter so far is the Toss chapter. From this chapter, I've made the sesame chicken cucumber noodle salad, spicy shrimp and avocado salad, and the tofu green goddess salad. These dishes could easily be main courses for many people. I make them as appetizers or lunches for my DH.
3. EVERY recipe has a picture that actually is what you can make. The pictures really help me because, although I don't have the plating gene, with the picture as a guide, I can make these recipes LOOK pretty nice too. It's not like Bon Appetit recipes that I make that NEVER look like the picture. Ming's recipes and pictures actually go together.
One caveat:
I do STRONGLY recommend this cookbook with this one reservation: since it is asian fusion, it does require a few (common) asian spices, sauces, and condiments, so I'm not sure this is a good recipe book for someone who lives in an area that lacks Asian markets or Asian sections in markets. However, if you have access to an asian market, even if going into one is totally foreign to you, his descriptions help tremendously and you'll be able to find what you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way Beyond East Meets West 13 Nov. 2010
By M. Schmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a Food Network follower from the early days, I remember Ming Tsai and his soothing, elegant cooking show "East Meets West" from the late '90s. When I saw his familiar smile on the cover of his new book, "Simply Ming, One-Pot Meals", I was intrigued. Upon opening the book I found myself making a dash for the register, salivating over which creation I was going to try first. This book is beautiful and very well thought out. EVERY recipe has a gorgeous photograph to accompany it and the range of recipes is astounding. Delightful beverage pairings accompany each dish. Next up on my list are his "Orange-Ginger Lamb Shanks with Barley" (with a Bordeaux blend, like Chateau Centemerle, Haut Medoc, France) and "Chile Pork Fillets with Garlic Brussels Sprouts" (with a big, buttery California Central Cost Chardonnay like Peter Michael). These one-pot wonders and their pairings are my new entertaining secret!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy healthy recipes, unusual ingredients, wine pairing! 20 April 2014
By Shawkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We became fans of Ming while watching him on PBS. He makes really tasty dishes that are healthy, not because they replace unhealthy items with the low-fat version, but because the real recipe starts out healthy and pure. His recipes are great because they appeal to people with high-brow tastes while being easy to make (as opposed to say, some fussy French recipe). His recipes have a wide appeal, I would serve these to my pickiest relatives as well as the down to earth ones.
The book is beautifully put together. The recipes all have full-page photographs of the meal. What I love is that he recommends a wine/beer to go with every dish. You'll be able to achieve the right pairing the first time you make the meal, without having to taste it first. I am no chef, but I do love to cook; I find myself having all of the tools necessary to make the meal, the only issue I have is finding the ingredients. Granted, I live in a suburban area of a boring city, but even if I moved back to a major city, I wouldn't know off the top of my head where to get oxtail. The harder to find ingredients don't make me like this book less, because I feel it rounds out my recipe collection, but I was surprised that the meals in this book contained more hard-to-find ingredients than his show does. That is the only reason for four stars. I will likely look for others of his cook books to try to find more of his recipes that contain ingredients I am familiar with cooking. In addition to the drink pairing tips, Ming provides lengthy descriptions of the meals, so that you can imagine what you are about to make and know how to aim for that end. He gives tips at the bottom of the page about, for example, handling various meats or cutting a certain vegetable.
Examples of some of the recipes are:
- Star anise-ginger "braised" whole chicken
- Red-roast duck legs with sweet potatoes and daikon
- Oxtail and shiitakes with quinoa
- Aromatic short ribs with root vegetables
- Curry beef with potatoes and onions
- Orange-ginger lamb shanks with barley
- Garlic with osso buco with celeriac
- Pork belly with jalapeno-pineapple salsa
- Chicken and tri-bell pepper chow mein
- Kung pao chicken with house rice
- Beef shiitake and broccoli stir-fry
- "French Dip" orange beef
- Green peppercorn beef with asparagus and rotini
- Pork kimchee with noodles
- Gingered pork with leeks
- Scallop and bacon fettuccine
- Clams with pork and jicama
- Black bean scallops and zucchini
- Black pepper sake mussels with granny smith apples
- Mirin clams and leeks
- Sweet and sour mango pork
- Beef and onion "sukiyaki"

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing..... 21 Jun. 2016
By Wylie C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having watched Ming Tsai prepare fairly simple but apparently tasty dishes on televised programs, I erroneously assumed the recipes in this "one pot" cookbook would be fairly simple. Had I realized there were so many hard-to-find if not impossible to find ingredients, I would not have wasted my money. I certainly won't order another one.
