This may seem like a lot of ingredients, but it goes together so quickly supper will be on the table in no time! It can serve 8 people easily if you choose to add the Jasmine rice to the menu. We love the Hoisen and 5-Spice flavors and for our taste I use 4 Tablespoons of the Hoisen & 1 Teaspoon of the 5-spice.
