We've been using this wonderful recipe for years -- it's one of my favorites. I do make some adjustments, though: I double the quantities of the broth and hoisin, and I add some water when cooking the broccoli. It's also great with chicken, and sometimes I add tofu if I want to stretch it. A pinch of red pepper flakes is also a nice touch.
This was very yummy, I substituted chicken for the shrimp to make it more budget friendly. I would have liked a bit more sauce but I guess that's to be expected for a lower calorie recipe. Doubled this to feed my family of 6, thanks!
