this was really great and I had all the ingredients on hand. The siracha sauce is a must, don't try ketchup! Will make it again. My asian husband loved it!

This is my first try of WaterMelon's recipes. My husband ate it and loved it. He ate the leftovers again for lunch today. He is Russian, so obviously this recipe crosses borders. I didn't make it as spicy because he can't take the spice. Also, I didn't have oyster sauce or sherry, but it seems to have turned out pretty well anyway. Also, WaterMelon just want to let you know that I love your food photos.
