I started out my cooking evening testing recipes for my work in progress: the Chinese dish Shrimp with Crispy Walnuts in sweet creamy sauce. I was working on the phase cooking the shrimp (all the different ways) and came upon one I prefer and will document soon. (Not to deny you, it's S+P+minced garlic+Balsamic vinegar, marinate, then toss in cornstarch before frying them.)
Then I cooked Trader Joe's Orange Chicken in my remaining oil, threw in some large diced brown onions, threw in some left over (frozen) pineapple chunks in juice, didn't want to bother with the spice packet so I splashed some Balsamic vinegar (sour) and went with the pineapple juice (sweet) and squeezed a garlic clove through my Zyliss press, then stirred it up and served it over white rice.
It was pretty good and I have two Orange sauce spice packets for next time on the TJ's recipe. And my shrimp experiments gave me a pretty good idea how I want my shrimp phase to go on that recipe. I still have the walnut phase and the creamy sauce phase (honey, mayonnaise, condensed milk) left to perfect. Then there's a few things to add and voila!
