I love General Tso's chicken but every once and awhile I crave a different protein. Usually I reach for shrimp but today decided to swap in some lean pork tenderloin and it worked great. Even my favorite pork hater thought it was delicious. Although truth be told, I think he thought it was chicken for the first half of the meal.
