Versatile and delicious! Love how it uses ingredients that I typically have on hand. I seasoned pork with about 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, used about 1 1/4 cups water, added 3 tablespoons of soy instead of 2, and used the stated amount of chicken bouillon. I put soy and bouillon in right away with the veggie/meat so it would saturate the meat while simmering. I ended up using 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken but that depends upon the water amount. Made for my PAC Spring 2010 baby!
