Expert Tips

"Kung Pao" refers to stir-fries seasoned with garlic, chili puree and peanuts. The flavor for this Kung Pao dish is easily achieved with a stir-fry sauce.

Chinese rice stick noodles are very thin and white; they can be found in most large grocery stores in the Asian foods area.

Can't find broccoli slaw mix at your grocery store? Use a 16-ounce bag of coleslaw mix instead.
