There are a lot of ingredients, and this one got away from me so fast I ended up with enough to feed an army, not just the wife and myself. One of these and one of those adds up to a big pile of food in a hurry. So much so I actually had to cook this in 2 part and combine at the end as everything would not fit in my wok at once, and a overloaded wok is not very efficient. Boy was I not efficient.
