5 Minute Meals for the Busiest Nights

Classic char siu pork takes time and a lot of work to make. 

1. Char siu pork with pak choy

Here's a shortcut version with tender pork fillet, lots of ginger and garlic, and a sauce made with soy sauce.

If you have eggs in your pantry, you can always make a tasty meal. 

2. Sweet potato

Even though this frittata is almost too easy to make, it tastes very good.

This super-fast recipe requires almost no cooking and almost no prep work.

3. Salmon and quinoa salad

Protein-rich rice is mixed with hot-smoked salmon and topped with a creamy horseradish dressing. 

This spicy, light, and bright Vietnamese steak salad takes less than 30 minutes to make.

4. Vietnamese steak salad

On top of an onion, herb, and tomato salad goes hot, marinating beef, which is then mixed together at the table.

This dish, which comes from Sichuan, has a lot of spice, which gives it a lot of flavor.

5. Mushroom chow mein

It's a great dish for vegetarians, but you could always add cooked chicken or shrimp strips at the end to make it more filling.
