If you were wondering, like expateek often does, about why it is that your homemade Chinese dishes are never as fabulous as take-away, then today's your lucky day! Because during her back alley ramblings in Peoria, Illinois, she came across this behind the local Chinese joint.
Awesomeness, times twelve! Because not only is the secret ingredient grease, it is recycled grease, people! Obviously these guys are taking the whole greener planet thing very very seriously.
expateek was simply thrilled to learn about this amazing new development in Chinese cooking, and can hardly wait to incorporate recycled grease into her own home cookin'. It won't even matter that there's no Cock Sauce!
The only worry that expateek has is that she might not be able to gain access to the restaurant-type quantities of grease necessary for proper Chinese cuisine.
expateek's going green, but not in that good, planet-y way.
