Chinese Fajitas

P1000875, originally uploaded by yellojkt.

One problem in trying to describe the food we ate in China is that we rarely knew what the dishes were called. Often we were just told the major ingredients. Pork, chicken, beef, and lamb were all common.

Some foods like the one in this picture required some assembly. A thin piece of dough like a tortilla was to be filled with strips of meat and vegetables like carrots, onions, and green and red peppers. I immediatey dubbed them Chinese fajitas.

Other foods like Peking duck and whole baked fish were served on a platter and diners just tore off the parts they wanted with chopsticks.
