    Barb Gertz's Note:

    This recipe can be made up to 2 hours ahead of time;let cool, then cover and let stand at room temperature. If you use the maximum amount of chili flakes this dish will be quite HOT. The recipe comes from Sunset Magazine.

      We weren't fussy over the flavour the rice wine vinegar gave the dish. We prefer a less sour taste and a touch of sesame seed oil.

      Very good. Second time I made it I cut back the sugar to 1/2 tsp. which was about perfect. The sugar called for in the original recipe was a little too much for my taste. Didn't have the ginger so used 5 spice instead which worked well. Also added about 4 oz. of ground pork because I had it on hand. Altogether excellent and very flexible recipe.
