NEENA's notes for this recipe:
MY DAUGHTER BROUGHT HOME HER FRIENDS FROM CHINA. I WANTED TO MAKE SOMETHING THEY COULD RELATE TO SO I TRIED THIS RECIPE. IT WAS EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND MAKE. NOT ONLY DID THE FRIENDS FROM CHINA LOVE IT BUT MY FAMILY ALSO LOVED IT. I WILL BE MAKING IT AGAIN.

Neena A simple suggestion I would use sesame oil to give it a little more of an asian flavor.

Sesame oil is a great idea, it makes it do-able for me to try as I'm allergic to peanut.

Sounds yummy, will definitely give this a try. I live in a small town with where there is no good chinese food.

Yum...try throwing in cashews at the last minute, and using Inoki and Shitaki mushrooms.......REALLY YUM! Red pepper flakes make a nice "kick", and cut-up broccoli will stretch this dish even further, if you have a family to feed.
