I just found this sauce yesterday at my local Giant. It was in the "international foods" aisle.

I bought it, but haven't tried it yet.

Dear runner girl,

I read that Choy Sun is made by Lee Kum Kee, and safe. The site has not been updated, though. You may want to call and see if the sauce is still safe. Go to http://usa.lkk.com/Common/corporate/faq.aspx to find where I got the info. Also, if it is safe, you can buy it on amazon .com at http://www.amazon .com/Lee-Kum-Kee-Premium-...r/dp/B00023T3J4

so you can get some!

Sincerely,

I have been using CHOY SUN OYSTER FLAVORED SAUCE by LEE KUM KEE for a long time. Last time was two days ago in a snow pea and shrimp stir fry. Never a problem.

Dear rajawali,

Thank you for posting this! It is always good to have another confirmation! I need to get some of this stuff! There are so many things it would go great with! I need to look around for it. If I cannot find it locally, I know I can order it on Amazon!

Sincerely,

Just another note about this sauce...

I mentioned that I found it at Giant. I also wanted to mention that I found it at my local asian food market (I'm fortunate enough to have 4 of them all within a 10 min drive of my house) and I found a MUCH BIGGER bottle of it, for the same price as Giant.

So, for those of you who are looking for this, try an Asian food market first and try Giant next. You COULD try Whole Foods as an absolute last resort, but it's quite a bit more (at least near me) than even Giant's price.

As a bit of a sidebar, I made egg rolls with this sauce (using rice paper spring roll wraps, of course) with this, and my roommate/best friend (who is not gluten-free) said that they were the best egg rolls she ever had. She ate FOUR (!)of them and is already begging me to make more this weekend...!!

Could you give up your recipe for egg rolls? I have been looking for a way to make them.

Yellow Rose

Sure... It's pretty simple really (well, I think it is...)

Please note that I don't do too much "measuring" with this recipe. I just "eyeball" it and taste it :P ... This recipe will make about 6 small-to-medium egg rolls. Your measurements may be more or less depending on preferences and amount you intend to make.

You'll need:

1/2 bag of coleslaw mix/shredded cabbage (I use the kind without carrots)

1 small chicken breast, cut into very small pieces (or whatever meat you want to use, or meatless)

oyster sauce (Lee Kum Kee Choy Sun Brand)

vegetable oil

sesame oil

chili oil (optional)

ground ginger

minced garlic

dash of soy sauce (whichever gluten-free soy sauce you prefer)

rice paper spring roll wraps (I used the smaller, "bread plate" sized, round wrappers.)

Filling

Start by heating a large skillet on med-high/high heat. Add about 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil and 2 Tbsp of sesame oil. Add about 1-2 tsp (or more) of minced garlic and the chicken. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink and add cabbage. Cook until cabbage wilts and softens a bit (or until to whatever degree of "cooked" you prefer). Add a dash (or 2) of ground ginger. Add 2 Tbsp (or so) of oyster sauce. Just enough to coat the filling, not enough to make it "soupy" or anything.

Add a few drops of chili oil (optional... gives it just a little kick) and a dash of soy sauce.

Continue cooking for about 30 secs - 1 min. Just enough for everything to get all incorporated and yummy. You can taste and decide if you would like to add any additional spices/sauce.

When it's done, dump it all out onto a plate or dish lined with paper towels and let it cool COMPLETELY (I did for about 1 hour to be safe).

Wraps

These can be a little tricky to work with (at least for me) but I developed a bit of a trick to make them work better for me.

*Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray it with a bit of cooking spray (or use a little bit of vegetable oil and spread it around the foil. This makes it much easier to work with the wraps, as they get sticky when you go to wet them to work with them.*

Get a dish of boiling water (some people use other methods to wet the wraps, but this works for me). When you get the wraps they are sort of hard, and you have to wet them with the boiling water to be able to fold them.

*Another note, because the wraps are so thin and I like a more substantial wrapper with my rolls, I used 2 wrappers for one roll. Just lay them together before you wet them. When you dip them in the water, they will stick together.*

Dip your wrappers until they begin to soften and then carefully pull them out of the water. If you pull them out too quickly, they will fold in on themselves and are a nightmare to get straightened out.

Lay them out on your cookie sheet and fill with about 2 Tbsp of filling. Fold the top and bottom ends up, and then start from one side and roll, making sure the top and bottom stays tucked in. Place on your cookie sheet, and continue until all of your rolls are done.

What I did next was to let them "set up" in the fridge for about an 30 mins or so, just to make sure everything stayed in place when I fried them.

Then, fry in vegetable oil (with a bit of sesame oil added if you like) on very high heat for a few minutes on each side. If you use a deep fryer or sauce pan, it will work better, I think. Another note, try to fry them one at a time, because I learned (the hard way) that if you put more than one in at once, they will float towards each other and stick together. They can be separated when they are done, but, again, it's a pain. Also, I found that they didn't "brown" the way I am used to my pre-gluten-free egg rolls browning. I guess because it's a differen't wrapper. They still get crunchy, but not as "golden" as I remember other egg rolls to be.

Drain WELL on paper towels and serve with gluten-free sauce of choice (I like duck sauce).

That's it!! You know, now that I read over this, it sounds A LOT more complicated than I intended, but I promise it's not as "long and involved" as it sounds. ;)

Enjoy! :D

Dear JustMeInMD,

Thank you for sharing your recipe! I bought a huge cabbage I need to shred myself, when I could have bought the pre-shredded stuff! I know you have to be careful with those, because some may have cc issues unless they solely deal with produce. I am anxious to make Spring Rolls! You are very right about the Asian markets. They are much less expensive and have high quality items. For my cookies, I use sweet rice flour, and for other things, I use plain rice flour you can get for only $1 or so per box or bag, instead of much more. We do not have a Whole Foods or Giant here, but do have a Super Wal-Mart, which has a lot of stuff we can have.

Sincerely,

I'm so glad I read this thread! I just printed off a recipe yesterday for Thai "cashew nut shrimp" on another site...oh my gosh, I could eat Thai food everyday....and I was missing my veggie spring rolls so much. I'm going to gather all the ingredients I need....just gotta find a store that sells them first.

Anyway, my mouth is watering for my favorite Thai restaurant now. :rolleyes:

Thanks so much for the info. and happy cooking! Julie

Dear Julie,

Have you had Thai Kitchen's Peanut Noodles? They are delicious! They are very filling, tasty, and really hit the spot! I am almost always hungry. I really enjoyed these, because they taste great, and are keep me content for a while.

Dear Julie,

You are so welcome! They are delicious! Thai Kitchen and A Taste of Thai both make them. I think they are actually the same company, but go by different titles at times. Those will fill you up!

Dear Elena,

Choy Sun is the brand made by Lee Kum Kee. You probably could find it at a mainstream grocery. Some Asian markets carry it, too. That would be less expensive. Whole Foods charges a lot more. We do not have one here, but I know some other people said their items are higher even if they are the same brand as in the regular store.

I actually looked at my regular grocery store first and did not find any gluten free oyster sauce. Since I use very little of it, one bottle lasts me a long time. :)

Dear Elena,

That is good it lasts a while! It is so odd how one store might carry something, and then another does not. I do not know why that is. We have some mainstream stores that do not carry things many of the same stores in other cities do. At our Super Wal-Mart, they do not always carry the same stuff. That drives me crazy! They might not have something for weeks or months, and then it will pop up again.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

    • Thank you all for your great suggestions! Will take all of it on board
    • Dairy is a major issue with celiac, due to the enzymes to break it down being produced by the villi tips being mostly destroyed or damaged first. Eliminating for a few months may be critical. I might suggest digestive enzymes, I am taking Jarrow Enzymes at 2x the dose, Jarrow Bromelain, and sometimes some extra papaya enzymes. I have issues breaking down the large amounts of foods I consume otherwise (I am trying to body build bulk). I also would look at some protein powders if I was you. Vegan protein powders are easy to digest most times an can be great. Pumpkin Seed protein is the easiest on the stomach, being a balanced PH, high in zinc, iron, magnesium, it is very good for recovery and putting on weight in addition to others. Might also consider blends, try not to get anything with too much gums in it. I like NutraKey V-Pro and MRM Veggie Elite. I also buy a whole list of others. On her food, veggies, and meats should be cooked to almost mush, try using a crockpot and stewing them. This will make them easier to digest and break down.
      Is she having any other issues? Like Bowl issues? I find I can loose hunger if I back up, and I have to take magnesium like crazy and eat a whole lot of fiber to keep it moving. Take it you already read the newbie 101 section about getting all new cookware, and deconing the house? Bit of a extra tip I swear by to everyone, Freezer Paper/Butcher Paper. Makes a nice clean prep surface and easy clean up.
    • Hi Kirsty, Gluten messes me up in a lot of different ways, some of which I recognise in your first list. You can find a massive list of symptoms associated with celiac here: https://glutenfreeworks.com/gluten-disorders/symptom-guide/ and it may be that some of your other symptoms can be found there. It's also worth searching this forum as it's been going for a long time, in internet years at least.  It certainly messed with my blood sugar and like you I'd take tests which didn't reach the extreme values, but that didn't stop the symptoms. The only way I realised this was when I removed it from my diet, for other reasons and found that a load of different other symptoms also resolved.  After this happened I then went back on to gluten for a test, a gluten challenge. My symptoms came back, but my blood test and endoscopy were negative for celiac. My consultant told me to avoid gluten for life.  In your case you need to decide whether to push for more celiac testing or not. If not, please consider fully excluding gluten. My own experience is that it's not something that you can have a little of and get a health benefit, you are still engaging your auto immune system. Obviously if you're experiencing extreme symptoms when you remove it you should do it in consultation with your doctor, but maybe if you could just get through those difficult first few days you may experience relief from some of your symptoms? Best of luck matt    
    • So... his gp did a genetic test - positive - and has referred him to a gi. His paed and diabetes educator have ordered the genetic test and another coeliac screen for 3 months and then they will decide if he needs to see a specialist because they're still convinced its most likely a false positive. Why test at diagnosis of diabetes if they don't believe the results anyway? Why is this disease so confusing for the medical world?  Anyway we're sticking with the gp and hopefully it won't be too long before he gets into a gi.  It seems that blood tests don't matter in any situation. If they can find any excuse to invalidate them they jump at it.  Makes me so infuriated I just laugh about how I already seem to know more. 
    • Thank you! I have been considering lactose, though I'm reluctant to remove more things from her diet. She has not had the classic lactose intolerance symptoms of diarrhea, gas, or bloating, though I know she could still have trouble with it. She's been on the medication for less than a week, so it's not the cause of her symptoms. I did not call the manufacturer but it is listed as safe on glutenfreedrugs.com (under the brand name periactin). It was prescribed by a pediatric GI who specializes in celiac. The first question my daughter had for the doctor was whether the medication is gluten-free, and she told us it was.
