My taste buds have graduated from Orange Chicken to General Tso's Chicken recently.  I like the sweetness of it mixed with the heat of the red pepper.  This is my new meat compliment to a chow mein noodle dish.  You like it hot?

I love lo mein at the local buffet but I'm not real fond of the vegetable to noodle ratio that they have.  I do love my vegetables.  Since I am not able to find the correct type of noodle for this dish, I compromised with ramen noodles.  It was delicious and loaded with veggies.

I love Panda Express, and my favorite dish to get from them is the orange chicken with a side of "chow mein".  In my opinion what they call chow mein is actually lo mein.  The chow mein that I make is a wetter dish with more vegetables and served over crispy noodles.  Oh call it what you may, this "chow mein" copycat recipe was so close to the real thing, except the noodles.  I know that is a big part of the dish but the vegetable to noodle ratio was correct and the flavor was right on.  I thought the noodles were too soft and soggy.

The beef in this dish is so tender due to the teriyaki marinade.  You could use the base recipe for the beef to stir-fry with any combination of vegetables.

This little concoction has all the flavors I long for.  The tangy orange, hint of sweet coconut and the salty and nutty cashews.
