Nice to be had hot(when made), very tasty and goes great with fried rice.

This recipe came up for me in the Recipezaar Russian Roulette. I doubled the recipe to make enough to feed everyone. I left out the oyster sauce (we don't eat oysters) and just added more soy sauce and some brown sugar. Served it over some steamed rice with some cabbage salad on the side. Pretty good, we'll have it again! Thanks Charishma!
