      Delicious! I think this is better than take-out. It's more of a natural flavor. The recipe is quick to prepare and very flavorful. I used Sriracha and the amount added just a hint of spice/heat, without being too much. I used Mirin (rice wine) and it was lovely with the other sauces. I served this over brown rice. This simple yet delicious dinner is going into my best-of-the-best file. Thank you!

      What a great recipe! I used dry sherry because that's what I had. I used garlic chili sauce and it was not too spicy. If you want some heat, you should use more. I was debating whether to make more sauce, but decided to stick with the amounts given and I thought it was perfect. Since we were eating in shifts tonight, I added cashews after plating so they wouldn't get soggy. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2013 tag.
