  • About

Rice crumbs are the Chinese counterpart of bread crumbs. They are seasoned and mixed into ground meats to improve texture and flavor, and they are used as a light, flavorful coating for steamed foods. Rice crumbs, always used crushed, go particularly well with pork, which takes slow cooking and allows the flavor of the crumbs to develop fully, but they may be used with beef, fish, and chicken as well. The crumbs can be made ahead and stored in a tightly covered jar at room temperature indef
