    echo echo's Note:

    Curry translated into a Chinese dish--another old favorite from my well-thumbed copy of Jim Lee's Chinese Cookbook. The original recipe called for MSG but I don't use that so I've omitted it; if you want it anyway the amount is 1 tsp and it's in the marinade described in Step 1. The preparation time shown includes the 30 minutes for marinating the meat.

      I made a few adjustments to the recipe: I didn't have fresh ginger, so I used a teaspoon of powdered, instead of sugar I used a tablespoon of mirin (since I had it on hand), and I added an eight ounce package of sliced mushrooms. I didn't brown the garlic or onion - instead I just cooked them until soft. Instead of chicken broth I used half a teaspoon of beef bouillon and omitted the salt.<br/><br/>This was fantastic over steamed rice and I will definitely be making it again!

      This was quick and easy to do. I served it over rice vermicelli and it was gone in seconds. Will make again soon. Made for Recipe Tag.
