A great recipe! A tad on the hot side, next time I am going to cut the red pepper down to a 1/4 tsp and add some veggies.
You have to make the sauce and cook the meat in order to appreciate this recipe. You can taste the sauce first and determine. This recipe is used by all of the oriental resturantes. If you want the bourbon add 2-3 tablespoons.
