Best Chinese Red Meat Dishes / Potstickers in San Gabriel Valley

Probably for take - out. Tie-breaker goes to Hunan. (Mandarin in 2nd, other regions tie for third.)

I recognize that the red meat and take-out components of this will seem less-than-ideal for many. But those are my current parameters.

    Ok. I meant like, pork, beef, lamb etc. As in not seafood.

    Traditional examples would be orange or tangerine beef, Hunan lamb, roast pork, etc.

    Duck would also qualify as red meat.

      So perhaps something like the French style beef steak (cut up in cubes) at Tasty Garden or every other Cantonese restaurant in the SGV.

        in this case i'll throw Kim Tar in Monterey Park up

        Their house special pork chops and french style filet mignon are both very good. Anything seafood related is good there as well, even though I know that's not what you're asking. They're kind of like a less bz newport seafood.

        For the quality of food at the prices they charge, I kind of expect them to be more bz, but that isn't the case most of the time.

          Pork pump at Mei Long Village. Call a day ahead to reserve it.

              It's like a big funking hunk of uncured bacon slathered in a savory, pungent and sweet gelatinous sauce that resembles Jell-O more than a "sauce" of any ilk you might be comfortable with ... but better.

                  Words fail you?

                    Was going to say that ns1 was probably referring to the part of that link where you say "you don't have to preorder" (but it definitely helps as sometimes they run out).

                    But then decided to let ns1 explain himself. :)

          OK, I'm a little slow tonight, but what do you mean by red meat, beef? Red meat in potstickers?

            My guess would be barbecued or grilled meat with red seasonings rubbed into the meat. Like char siu?

                  I was just working on a hunch based on the meaning of the 紅 character.
