    Very nice. What do you use for coating? I use Thai Sweet Chili Sauce for a quick sweet/sour glaze.

    I loves me some sweet chili sauce and I always keep some in the house but.....

    Hoisin sauce
    Ground Chili garlic sauce
    Oyster sauce
    Pepper sauce
    Olive oil
    Chopped garlic
    Chopped Ginger

    I didn't measure anything but

    Heat olive oil in a pan add the garlic and ginger and fry a bit then add the rest of the ingredients and heat.

    I never measure anything either once I get a taste I like...I do when building a recipe, to keep proportions in mind, but once I have it honed I splash and dash. Your formula for Gen. Tso's is real close to mine, except I toss a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste in for color. Yummmmmm

    Why did I click on this thread? I don't have anything around here that tastes as good as that looks. I gotta head for town anyway in a couple of hours but now I'm salivating.

    So Trlsm, in another life were you known by the name Pavlov? You seem to have the desired affect on this old dog, thanks for the recipe.

    Good one, yes it got me, and that is one of my favorite dishes, and it looks like something made up to take pics of for a resturant ad.

    I can honestly say that this was cheaper to feed 4 than a trip to McDonalds!
