    GingerlyJ's Note:

    This recipe was taken from the book "the most decadent diet ever" by Devin Alexander. It's as healthy as it is good. It's like a combination of General Tso's Chicken and Kung Pao beef but healthier

      Very nice recipe. My wife and I both loved it. I made exactly as directed. I caould have had it hotter but it was perfect for my wife. Also, next time I think I will use just a bit more hoisin sauce to head the dish a little closer to to General Tsao!

      This is really good. The directions are spot on, and it is super simple to put together. Next time I would add bean sprouts and other veggies to the mix. It does not have a lot of heat, but adding more crushed red pepper flakes solves that easily. Thanks for sharing this very low fat recipe.
