And it wasn't easy. It took me three tries, cursing the internet the whole way. This a hybrid of several recipes so I think I can safely call it my own variation. It turned out that the key ingredient missing from so many was tomato paste. It gives you the right color, mellows the ginger and just generally pulls all the flavors together, without ever tasting like tomato. All the other recipes tasted like over-starched ginger goop. If you want to spread out the preparation time, consider making the sauce earlier and reheating when its time to cook the chicken. This makes a lot of General Tso's. I'd say enough for 5-8 depending on if it is the only dish or one of several dishes. Alida's General Tso's Chicken For the sauce: 4 tablespoons tomato paste, mixed with 4 tablespoons water until smooth 1 tablespoon tapioca starch 8 teaspoons light soy sauce 4 tablespoons rice vinegar 1 c water or chicken stock for extra flavor 1/2 c sugar 8-16 dried red chilies (I use Arbol chilies) 4-8 teaspoons finely chopped ginger 8 teaspoons minced garlic 4 teaspoons light sesame oil 2 teaspoons peanut oil 6 scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish, the greens especially. For the chicken: 1 - 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (or other dark meat) cut into small chunks 1 c corn starch 6 eggs 1 tsp white pepper Directions Snip chilies into 3/4 inch pieces, shaking out the seeds. Discard seeds. In a bowl, combine watered tomato paste, starch, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and stock. In a small pot, heat peanut oil on medium heat. When hot, add peppers, stir, toasting for just a few seconds until they start to darken. Add the garlic and ginger. Stir a few seconds, then add the liquid mix from the bowl. Cook until thickened. Stir in 4 teaspoons sesame oil. Cover and turn heat to low. If you don't like a lot of chunky bits in your sauce, strain the sauce and return to the pot to keep warm. Just make sure you've cooked it long enough to get the flavor of the peppers. Keep warm on low until chicken is ready. Fill your deep fryer or pot with a couple inches of vegetable oil, and heat while you prepare the chicken. Cut up chicken, making the pieces no larger than the first joint of your thumb. In bowl, whisk the eggs lightly. Whisk in pepper, and then gradually whisk in the starch. Don't worry about the small lumps. You just don't want lumps bigger than a pea. Dump the chicken pieces into the batter, and stir around. You're ready to start frying. It'll take about three batches if you've got a smallish deep fryer like I do. Cook each batch for about 4 minutes, drain on plate with paper towel, or a cookie rack over something to catch the oil. Discard any bits of cooked batter that doesn't have chicken. When everything is cooked, return all the cooked chicken to the deep fryer to re-crisp everything for a couple minutes. Drain, pour into serving bowl and toss with the cooked sauce. Sprinkle cut scallions over top and serve immediately with rice. Variations Extra hot: Use the maximum amount of the ginger and of chilies. Still don't use the chili seeds though, unless you like crying over your food. Hot&sour: leave out the sugar. You're going to get a touch of sweetness from the tomato paste anyway, and for some that's enough. Sugar Free: If you still like sweet, but don't want the sugar, put in your favorite substitute. It isn't important to the chemistry in this case, as the starch does the little bit of thickening necessary, so anything from stevia to splenda shouldn't be a problem. Just be sure its a sweetener that can be heated. Substitutions You can substitute the tapioca starch, with potato starch (equal) or corn (a little less), but don't substitute the cornstarch for anything else. I find it necessary for the batter. It is a very strong thickener. Rice vinegar can be replaced with sake, white wine, white wine vinegar, white vinegar, and I think even apple cider vinegar would be fine too. I've personally substituted with everything but the apple cider vinegar. Lately I've been using up a so-so bottle of sake as a vinegar substitute. If you don't have peanut oil or you're allergic to it, any vegi oil will do, and don't panic if you don't have sesame oil or don't like it. You can leave it out. The recipe doesn't hinge on the flavor. I use Arbol chilies, because I've found them the easiest to get. If you find the Japones/Japanese dried chillies, they are comparable in heat, but not necessarily in size. I'd go by weight in that case if you're concerned about things getting too hot. Black pepper works just as well as white. I find it entirely a cosmetic issue, as you can see the flecks of black pepper in the batter. But who's going to notice once the sauce is on?
The meat was so tender and the sauce was so rich!!! This is really a hearty meal, with loads of flavor and texture. My Dad use to make this when ever we had company and it was his turn to cook I have made a few changes, he adds green bell pepper to his but in my version I have left it out because I find it to be a little bitter if over cooked, I also use a lot less oil and no added salt and a little less flour The tomato paste and red wine will give the finished dish a rich dark color and enhances the taste of the sauce These subtle changes really allow the flavor of the meat to standout. But even with the changes I think my Dad would say taste wise, it is still very rich and flavorful! This meal is excellent when paired with a good Merlot. Beef Stroganoff Make 4 to 6 servings 11/2 lbs sirloin cut into thin strips (trimmed of excess fat) ? tsp Mrs. Dash ? tsp fresh pepper 2 cloves garlic chopped 3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms 1 large onion sliced 3 tbsp flour 4 tbsp olive oil (divided) 3cup low sodium beef broth * 3 tbsp tomato paste 3tbsp good red wine (or a dry sherry) 2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley (divided) ? cup fat free sour cream Cooked rice or Egg noodles Place strips of meat in large bowl season with garlic, pepper, and Mrs. dash stir to evenly distribute seasonings and set aside. Heat 1tbsp olive oil in large skillet saute mushrooms on medium high for 3 to 4 minutes, remove mushrooms and saute onions until lightly brown this will take about 5 minutes remove onions place in a bowl with mushrooms, add 1 tbsp olive oil to skillet and saute meat on high until brown, about 5 to 7 minutes remove meat and add to mushrooms and onion. Reduce heat to medium high and add remaining 2 tbsp oil to skillet stir in flour until medium brown then slowly add beef broth and increase heat until liquid starts to boil and reduce next add red wine, tomato Paste and 1 tbsp chopped parsley, add meat, onion and mushrooms let cook for 15 minutes then turn heat to low remove 1 cup of meat mixture pour in a bowl let cool for a few minutes and stir in sour cream, add to meat mixture to heat through.

Green Bean Almandine ? lb fresh green beans cleaned and trimmed 1 tbsp butter 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tsp fresh lemon juice 1 clove minced roasted garlic ? tsp Italian dressing(dry not the liquid) fresh ground pepper ? cup toasted almonds Place cleaned and trimmed green beans in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes remove from water , place butter in glass bowl with olive oil Heat until butter is melted about 15 seconds remove and stir in lemon juice, roasted garlic, pepper and Italian dressing add green beans and toss to coat sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve warm. *For an extra creamy dish I sometimes add a small can of low fat cream of mushroom soup in exchange for 1 cup of broth. * To make this dish vegetarian use vegetable broth instead of beef broth and substitute extra mushrooms for the meat and soy based sour cream for a vegan dish A combination of small portabella, Brown and white mushrooms are Great in this dish
