Kung Pao Chicken


Ingredients:

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon dry sherry or rice wine
2 teaspoons soy sauce
3 medium garlic cloves, pressed through garlic press or minced (about 1 tablespoon)
1 piece (1/2-inch) fresh ginger, peeled and minced (about 2 teaspoons)
3 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
1/2 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
6 small whole dried red chilies (each about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long)
3 chilies roughly crumbled, or 1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
3/4 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons black rice vinegar or plain rice vinegar
2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil
1 tablespoon oyster-flavored sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch dice
3 medium scallions, sliced thin

Instructions:

Toss chicken with sherry and soy sauce in medium bowl and let marinate while preparing other ingredients, at least 10 minutes.
Mix garlic, ginger, and 1 tablespoon oil in small bowl; set aside.
Combine peanuts and chilies in small bowl; set aside.
Mix chicken broth, vinegar, sesame oil, oyster-flavored sauce, hoisin sauce, and cornstarch in small bowl or measuring cup; set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch skillet over high heat until just beginning to smoke. Add chicken and cook without stirring for 2 minutes, allowing chicken to brown on one side; stir and cook 1 1/2 to 2 minutes more, until no longer pink; stir peanuts and chilies into chicken and continue cooking until peanuts have darkened slightly, 30 to 40 seconds longer. Transfer chicken, peanuts, and chilies to bowl; set aside.
Return skillet to burner and reheat briefly, 15 to 30 seconds. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, swirl to coat pan, and add red bell pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 45 seconds.
Clear center of pan, add garlic-ginger mixture, mash into pan with spoon or spatula, and cook until fragrant, 10 to 15 seconds; stir into peppers until combined.
Stir broth mixture to recombine, then add to skillet along with reserved chicken, peanuts, and chilies; cook, stirring and scraping up browned bits on bottom of pan, until sauce has thickened to syrupy consistency, about 45 seconds.
Stir in scallions and serve.

Having trouble finding a suitable replacement for the Chinese peppers in this recipe ... Scotch Bonnets do the trick. Do not to chop them up, leave them whole and do not eat the peppers. I recommend using the hottest peppers you can handle. But be careful.


Mongolian Beef Recipe

Ingredients:
1 pound lean beef (I used sirloin steak, venison works well also)
Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sweet white wine
5 Chinese red peppers
Oil
1 pound of green onions
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 tablespoons sliced garlic


Directions:
-Slice beef very thin. (Meat will slice easily if partially frozen.) Place in bowl and add 1 tablespoon soy sauce, salt, wine, Chinese red peppers, and 2 tablespoons oil.

-Cut green onions lengthwise, then in diagonal strips. Mix 1 tablespoon soy sauce and sesame oil in small bowl. Heat 1/3 cup oil in frying pan or wok until very hot. Add garlic and cook 3 seconds. Add beef and stir-fry over high heat 10 seconds. Add onion and sesame oil mixture and continue to stir-fry until thoroughly heated.

-Serve at once.

-Makes 6 to 8 servings

Be careful this can be hot!
