I added: 1/2 pound ground pork, a second carrot, 1 zucchini sliced thin, 1 cup frozen corn, a generous sprinkle of garlic powder, a sprinkle of ground ginger. I deglazed the pan with white wine. I used only 2 large mushrooms, and I left out the oil because the pan had enough grease from the ground pork. I really liked how the extra veggies added splashes of color! This was VERY tasty!
These went really well with Chinese pork chops and Chinese Green beans. I used peanut oil to saute the veggies which added a very nice flavor but I didn't add the full amount. Even DD picked out the flavor of the oil which surprised me because it was a very mild taste. (a new Chef in the making) As well I added a clove of garlic and a handful of bean sprouts. This really turned out well and very quick to put together. I agree with one of the posters as that you could take some veggies out and add other ones instead and it would still turn out great. Thanks for posting a great recipe gojenni. It was well enjoyed.
this recipe is a keeper!!! i tweaked oil & soy amounts & added ground pork & bean sprouts, it was wonderful! i love finding a recipe that you can add in/leave out stuff according to what you have in the house at the time. my husband, who is "anti-leftovers" ate this til it was gone!
