Ever wonder how Chinese restaurants  get their meat so tender? It's called Velvet-ting and I will show you an easy way How To Velvet Meat. Baking soda breaks down the meat, when you let it set for 30 min. When you rinse it, it will have a velvet texture, (you can feel it with your hands)  It's easy to do as you will see in the recipe below. It's what makes this recipe incredible. (besides the sauce that is) The only thing I would of done different is, I would of doubled the sauce!  To soak my rice in. Yum~

I do hope you enjoy this recipe, it is so good!
