Very interesting dish, a combination of Midwestern and Chinese cooking. We were two Americans and two Brits sitting down to dinner. The Americans gobbled this up but the Brits politely picked at their plates. Being American, I had my share and more, but next time I would use more onion and some red pepper flakes for just a bit more flavor.
