Kung Pao Beef

Kung Pao Beef created by Andrew K H.

Spicy Chinese beef with the crunch of peanuts. Serve with rice. Sometimes I like to make this with part beef, part chicken and part shrimp. Put the shrimp in near the end as they don't take long to cook if you'd like to try this.

    Very good recipe flavor wise. However - I used .550 lb of sirloin steak and half of all the other ingredients to try to get a half recipe. I still used the recipe amounts for the sauce. The sauce measurements are way too small even for my reduced recipe. You should at least DOUBLE the amount of liquids in the sauce recipe for the amount of ingredients used. I probably will skip the egg whites next times as all they did is cause a burnt on goo on the bottom of my wok. (I use a stainless steel non-coated wok)
