Korean Food: Tang soo yook (탕수육)

aeriskitchen's picture
The Korean name of this Deep Fried Meat With Sauce is Tang-soo-yook (탕수육) which is Korean style Chinese food. You can find this food in the Chinese restaurants in Korea. (This is not authentic Chinese food. *^^*) The fried meat tastes really great with the sweet and sour sauce. The onions, carrots, and cucumbers gives this sauce a wonderful combination of different flavors for the meat. I hope you will like this Korean style Chinese food.
Main ingredients:
  Onions 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  Cucumber 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  Carrots 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  Fruit cocktail 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), drained
