Go girl, this is HOT. If it is too hot, just cut down on ingredients that make a dish more spicy (like onions, green onions, chilies or chili paste).

Very tasty indeed!!! I used chili paste from the Asian store, which has alot of flavor and "kick". It was just spicy enough. I replaced one of the green peppers for a red pepper, for color. Next time, and there will be a next time, I would double the sauce recipe, and add the green onion at the last minute in order to retain crispness! Thats the beauty of a recipe, you can "tweak" it to suit your own taste! Thanks for this tasty and easy recipe!

I did not have chili paste, but a thai chili sauce. I thought the dish was good, but needed more flavor. Also, it took a long time to prepare. Thanks for the recipe

I love Szechwan, and this recipe hit the spot. It was a great candle light dinner for the husband & I. Couldn't find the chile paste, or fresh chile peppers at my local grocery. So I used chili powder. I left out the sherry. The oranges were horrible at the store, so I end up using McCormick orange peel (1/2 tablespoon) I followed everything else to a que, and it turned out great. Not watery, mildely spicy, but does take extra time, but worth it in my opinion. I served my dish with steamed rice, and a Mandarin Orange Oriental salad I made. Will be making again..
