@VI, looking to give this one a try this week. How much oil we talking about to "deep fry" the chicken in a wok. This one scares me a bit. Video please??!! [-O<
Just kidding on the video. Sort of.
I did kung pao shrimp twice last weekend.....very good. As a beginner with a wok also very easy.
@VI. I gave the generals tsos a shot today. It is really windy so I had a tough time getting the nice big open flame. It turned out pretty good. I cut up chicken thighs, and they were really good. My only issue other than the flame was I could not find rice wine. Do you know of a good substitute? Also, the sauce seemed a little chalky even though I blended the corn starch really well. Has that happened to you?
Things got a little hectic at the end when I realized I had forgotten to bring out my serving plate :)
