General Tso's Pork

What do you do with leftover fried food? I think some people re-fried the food again the next day for lunch and some people don't like leftover food at all.My family in Malaysia refused to eat leftover food at all,spoilt accordingly to me.Maybe they so used to have fresh food all the times and TV or frozen food is a "NO NO"! Luckily hubby don't really mind leftover food.All the times he eat the same food for 2-3 days . I guess for me living in US for so many moons already ,I don't mind eating leftover food.In fact I love it! I think the food taste better the next day. So usually I cooked our food more than we can eat.Remember I fried-fermented-chili-beans-fu-yee Pork Belly ? So the next day I modified the deep fried food to make another new dish..I sauteed with soy sauce and hoisin sauce..to make General Tso's Pork! General Tso Pork/Chicken/Shrimp/Beef is widely know and found in all Chinese take out and buffet restaurants in the North America. Check out my General Tso's Chicken 左公雞 HERE !!

Wah so `rajin'! You are very creative! I normally just heat it up and eat the samething again! ahahaha I know what you're saying -not everyone loves leftover food...I try to cook in a small portion especially my `low kong' hardly take dinner at home...and my two kids are still small (don't eat much)...hate when I becoming the `DBKL' - but it happens all the time! LOL
