So easy and so very tasty. I did add some salt & freshly ground black pepper to this dish to season more. A definite 'keeper' for me :)

Very tasty and quick meal! I threw in more veggies...mushrooms with the onions, zucchini with the tomatoes and garlic and bean sprouts with the green onions and they all worked very well. I also stirred in about a cup and a half of cooked brown rice toward the end and heated through. I used a bit more garlic and minced it instead of just smashing it. I didn't really like the cornstarch in this. It did thicken the pan juices but I didn't like the "crust" on the meat. I think next time I will omit it. I loved the additonal flavor from the sherry! Thanks for sharing! :)
