This is an adaptation of #98584 because my husband does not like cabbage and I had no dark sesame oil or green onions. I did have regular vegetable oil and sesame seeds. The serrano peppers add a bit of pepper heat, but not as hot as jalapeno. My husband loves warmed sweet and sour plum sauce on anything Asian -- and it is good with this.
