    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    This is a very popular dish on most Chinese restaurant menus, but is not always made the same from one restaurant to another. I think this is a GREAT recipe of mine.

      This was a fun recipe to try and our family really liked it. I used all cashews instead of peanuts and cashews and it was good. Thanks for sharing.
