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.
