Kung Pao Tempeh

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup dry sherry
1 1/3 cups vegetable stock
2 tablespoons honey
1 lb tempeh
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
3 tablespoons roasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 dried mild chili pepper, crushed or 1 tsp crushed red pepper
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 piece fresh ginger, (2 inch) minced
1/2 cup smooth low-sodium peanut butter
1/2 cup soy milk
4 scallions, sliced, green and white parts

Don't be fooled by a long list of ingredients--this is easier than it looks. Tastes fantastic! Only things I will change next time will be to bump up the spicing a bit (a bit more hot chili or hot sauce, a bit more ginger) and add sauteed red and green bell peppers for taste and a bit more visual appeal.
