      This is so delicious! I have made it three times, which minor variations each time depending on what I did/didn't have in the cupboard e.g. substituting apple cider vinegar for rice vinegar, using 1 cup total of regular soy sauce instead of 1.5 cups combined of the 3 different types listed in the recipe. You can use different veggies as well, depending on what you have, and I'm not so keen on cooked celery so I tend to leave that out. Each time it has worked out great, whichever minor changes I have made. I also add a bit of cornstarch at the end to thicken up the sauce. Using quantities given, I end up with enough sauce for 2 batches of stir fry and that's fine by me as it is delicious and was an instant favourite from the first bite.
