What's Your Best Asian Recipe?

Spill the secret sauce.

by ,

We can all agree that homecooked Asian food is the best kind of Asian food.

And some of us with immigrant backgrounds have family members who know culinary secrets from the homeland, which are inexplicably greater than anything from a recipe book.

Whether it's a simple bowl of spicy Korean kimchi stew...

A bright pot of Chinese Mapo tofu...

Or Sri Lankan sour fish curry — no restaurant dish will ever top the homecooked version of your favorite Asian food.

We want to know: What is your family's most delicious, tried-and-true Asian recipe?

From stews and curries, to noodle and rice dishes, to desserts and baked goods, we want to know 'em all. Don't let that authentic knowledge go to waste!

In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM), we're compiling and immortalizing all of YOUR best family recipes.

If you don't know one off the top of your head, now is the perfect time to beg your mom, uncle, or whoever for their best recipes — this is for posterity, people.

They may tell you they don't know "recipes," that they just have "a feel" for cooking, but make them try!

Lest their American-born descendants be left cobbling together a generic impostor dish from the instructions on the back of a label.

Whatever it is, tell us all about it — including ingredients and step-by-step instructions — in the Dropbox below, and your submission could be featured in our upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!

Got a photo to include with your recipe? Even better!
