I threw this together last night after looking at a few different recipes. Sorry if it seems a little confusing. I ended up loving this, and it really was easy. It was a little spicy for the kids, but I can adjust that next time. I had pork on hand so that is what I used, but you could substitute chicken.
In ziploc bag mix:
2 T. corn starch
2 T. soy sauce
(This is kind of a strange texture, but once you put the meat in it does work)
Dice 1 lb. (or so) pork or chicken and place in bag, coat well.
Heat ~2 T. oil and once hot, cook meat. When your meat is almost cooked add the following:
2 carrots diced
3 celery stalks diced
1 lg bell pepper diced
You may want to add more, this is what I did but I didn't have a pound of meat.
Continue to cook until meat is thoroughly cooked. Veggies are cooked but still a little crunchy (just like with any stir-fry). At this point I added the sauce.
Sauce: (from this website)
In a quart jar mix the following: (once in just put a lid on and shake)
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic, minced
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup white vinegar
14 1/2 ounces chicken broth (a can)
1/4 cup sherry or 1/4 cup white wine
I just used orange juice cause that's what I had on hand, I know it is no where near white wine or sherry, but what do you do. Also I put this in after I had the sauce warm and thick to thin it out a bit. Also it seemed a little sweet to me so next time I think I will use a little less sugar.
This made a ton of sauce so you may want to half it or just put it in a little at a time, depending on how much meat and veggies you have.
Pour sauce in with meat and veggies and cook until it thickens.
At this point I added just a squirt of Sriracha hot chili sauce and a handful or so of cashews. Stir it up and serve over rice.
Just a warning, I put in a squirt and stirred it in and tried it and I thought it could use just a bit more, well I think it gets spicier as it cooks because it ended up being pretty spicy. So start small and let it sit a few minutes before testing it. I happened to have this on hand, but I'm sure you could use red pepper flakes.
