No raw bell pepper, celery or cucumber?

Ahh yes Bell pepper and cucumber. We don't like celery but that is an
option.

That raises the question of *cooked* cucumber. I only know one recipe
for that, stir-fried, Chinese style (it's quite good.)

I adored cooked cucumber when I was in China, but haven't tried it
here at home because I think our cucumbers are too different. Google
images of Chinese cucumbers and you'll see what I mean. Would you
mind sharing your recipe anyway?

It's rather tasteless, isn't it? I try to keep it around for
soups/stock because it's truly a necessary ingredient - but I only
need a little and there's so much of it. That's when peanut butter is
my friend.

That's the only way I like cooking it. Hot and sour!

I've been trying for years to find out what my mother made. She
prepared the sliced cucumbers in a large cast iron skillet. The sauce
and cucumbers were brownish -- kind of like the color of sauerkraut
cooked with some sort of meat. I was very young when she made it
frequently. It was probably German.

The cucumber I ate all over China wasn't hot and sour, it was kind of
bland... but bland in a good way. That's why I've had a big problem
finding a recipe to re-create the flavor.... I am totally unfamiliar
with what they used to compose it.

Thanks, that's nothing like what I ate in China.

Ah, if you give more clues, I have lotso of Chinese cookbooks. But
then, from what you say, the cukes are all wrong here.
