SFoodie: Mysterious Chinese 5-Spice Carrots

Includes Gratuitous Gong Sound Effects

By Chef John from Food Wishes Video Recipes

I've had a lot of requests lately for easy, but different, vegetable side dishes. So, today's video recipe is an extremely easy, yet unusual, carrot side dish using one of my favorite “secret” ingredients; Chinese 5-spice. This spice mix was invented literally thousands of years ago, and is suppose to season food in perfect balance with the five elementary flavors of Chinese cuisine (and all cuisines for that matter); sweet, sour, bitter, salty and savory.
