      Made this tonight and it was delicious! Seems like a lot of ingrediants, but if you assemble them before you start it goes togetrher easily and quickly. Didn't have lemon grass paste, so I used lemon grass powder which was fine. Used Shitake mushrooms because that was what I had on hand. Used Xylitol to sweeten the sauce because I don't like to use sugar in anything. Just a tiny bit was fine and kept it lower carb. Did not have any oyster sauce on hand and didn't feel like running to the store and it was still fantastic. If I had been served this in a restaurant, I would be ordering it again and again.
