Simple, quick and delicious! I used beef broth instead of water just because I had fresh broth on hand. I also reduced the salt as we're on a low salt diet. The family really enjoyed this!!

This was good, but defintiely felt like it needed "something". I didn't add the sambal oelek though, so maybe that would have done it!

It didn't do it for me, it tastes Oriental, but it definitely doesn't taste like the Chinese restaurant...
