      Velly good! Serve with fried rice to dampen the chilis when they begin to muscle up on you.

      I made this for supper tonight. I totally recommend it. I didn't have fresh ginger but I had it pre-minced in a jar and it was just as good. My husband just loved it and so did I. Next time I make it I think I'll try it with chicken or even pork. SO GOOD!!!

      I made this and it was pretty good. :) Instead of dried chilies I used red pepper flakes, which turned out fine. It did not, however, taste like restaurant Kung Pao. Instead, it had a yummy citrus kick!
