General Tso Chicken A variation


One of our personal favorite web recipe sites is woks of Life. Firstly their recipes are usually actually tasty and work, second they give very good descriptions and third they focus on Chinese cuisine.

The picture is from my wife's version of their recipe

Now we were surprised they didn't start with frying finely chopped garlic ginger and scallions, so we added that. We also added hot peppers and we cut the amount of cornflour down to 1 tsp, their recipe makes it very gooey. Shown here it is served on cabbage rice, a great recipe and we will put it on soon.

But this captures the sweet/sourness of take away without the nastiness. Its a great recipe.
