I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago and it is a real winner. My husband really loved it. I got this recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks "Better Homes and Gardens" c1972. I will be making this one again tonight for supper. I hope you will give this a try. I know you won't be sorry that you did.

I didn't have a wok the first time I made this so I used an ordinary 10" fry pan with high sides and it worked just fine for 4 servings. I now have purchased a wok (not electric) . Will be using it instead of the frying pan
