Here are a couple photos I found online.
This website shows a pic of the brown one and a pic of the red one, but only gives the recipe for the brown one. http://cooking.chinaa2z.com/cooking/html/Recipes/2008/20081223/20081223155921949476/20081223160153638769.html

Here's a photo I found online. You can kind of see the sauce...close enough. Red, not brown.

Actually it seems like most restaurants in Beijing serve the "sweet sticky red sauce" gong bao, whether it's a hole-in-the-wall restaurant where locals eat or a tourist restaurant. Anyways, thanks for the suggestion.

I've been searching and searching for an "authentic" gong bao ji ding recipe and can't find the secret ingredients. By "authentic" I mean "the kind that I ate while living in Beijing that has a sweet, slightly sticky red colored sauce". I even took a cooking lesson in Beijing from a Chinese cook trained in Sichuan and have used Fuschia Dunlop's gong bao recipe. I'm sure both are "authentic" , but how do I cook the one that I ate in the restaurants of Beijing??? What are the ingredients that are missing?

Here is the recipe I have used: http://www.fuchsiadunlop.com/cooking/

This recipe makes a delicious dish, but with a BROWN sauce, and not sticky.

Please help!
