We really enjoyed this dish! Like Roosie, I had never cooked with five spice powder before (and I was going to leave it out), but thanks to her suggestion I left it in, and I am glad I did. I doubled the recipe and minced 12 cloves of garlic in my mini food processor. I used both the brown onion, and I sprinkled chopped green onions on top when it was done. I didn't find it too salty; it was perfect. I also liked how the sauce glazed up pretty quickly. I cooked it a little longer to try to cook the garlic a bit. I served it with white rice and roasted sesame broccoli. Thank you Sue L!
This is really tasty! My 'glaze' ended up being more of a sauce, because I added a bunch of veggies (peppers, broccoli, and peas). So I used cornstarch to make it a thicker sauce. Overall, a really easy to make dish that's tasty!
This had great flavor and I'll make it again. Loved that it was so fast and easy and made with (mostly) things I had on hand. I'm not a fan of five spice powder so I didn't have any. (I added some fresh ground pepper and cinnamon instead.) But the reason I didn't give it five stars is that it was too salty for us. Still delicious though. Thanks.
