Search for an "authentic" Gong bao ji ding recipe

maocookie | Aug 4, 2010 09:31 AM

I've been searching and searching for an "authentic" gong bao ji ding recipe and can't find the secret ingredients. By "authentic" I mean "the kind that I ate while living in Beijing that has a sweet, slightly sticky red colored sauce". I even took a cooking lesson in Beijing from a Chinese cook trained in Sichuan and have used Fuschia Dunlop's gong bao recipe. I'm sure both are "authentic" , but how do I cook the one that I ate in the restaurants of Beijing??? What are the ingredients that are missing?

Here is the recipe I have used: http://www.fuchsiadunlop.com/cooking/

This recipe makes a delicious dish, but with a BROWN sauce, and not sticky.

Please help!
