General Tsao's Sauce

The General sauce is super easy and cheap - just take one cup vegetable or chicken broth, one half cup water, a little ginger, onion, and peppers, and about 6 tbsp soy sauce, mix together, and thicken with cornstarch.
The spicy kind. You can either put whole ones in and let it think about itself in the fridge overnight, or sprinkle in spicy red pepper flakes, or use some cayenne! The nice thing about making it at home is that you can choose how spicy or mild it is. I also use a little more soy sauce than the traditional recipes call for, so you might want to start with 3-4 tbsp of it instead of 6.
