Remembering The World’s Greatest General


He was the greatest General. In his time not one drop of blood was shed, well maybe by accident while dicing scallions, he conquered every country he set foot—including the UnitedStates of America. His FIRERY  creation could destroy the world in the wrong hands but this strategist made sure it was used for good…and good he was and now no more.

 

So please give a solemn salute to Peng Chang-kuei, the REAL General Tso!

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE MARINADE:

  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing cooking wine
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 3/4-inch cubes

FOR THE SAUCE:

  • 3/4 cup chicken stock or water
  • 1/4 cup Shaoxing cooking wine
  • 2 tablespoons Chinkiang black vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour (tapioca starch)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

TO MAKE THE CHICKEN:

  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup dried red chiles
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Add the chicken cubes, toss to combine, and marinate for 20 minutes.
  2. Whisk together all sauce ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a wok over high heat until shimmering around 375 degrees F. Put the tapioca flour in a large bowl, add marinated chicken, and toss to coat. Be sure to coat each piece generously.
  4. Fry the chicken in the hot oil in two batches until they are golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Remove all about 2 tablespoons of the oil from the wok. Add garlic and ginger to the wok and stir-fry for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add chiles and stir-fry for another 30 seconds.
  6. Whisk the sauce mixture to recombine and add to the wok. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute.
  7. Transfer chicken to the wok and toss to coat. Stir in sesame oil. Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions.

    Who is Portland’s mysterious, lightsaber-wielding night horseman? http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2016/12/who_is_portlands_mysterious_li.html
    “If you live in Portland, maybe you’ve seen a man riding through the streets at night on horseback, brandishing a lightsaber. You may have thought you were hallucinating or having a peak Portland fever dream. It turns out, you were not.”

    “A fake news story about fake news sourced to fake researchers writing in a now-fake news organization that once brought down a sitting US president with investigative journalism back in the day when cynics still ran the place.
