I'm not sure if the name is spelled correctly but this is the first dish I tried to (trick) impress my husband with. He thought I could cook...ha...I didn't learn to cook until 7 years later when I found Zaar! But this was very good and he stills remembers it.

We loved this recipe! I have never had moo goo gai pan, so I can't speak to it's authenticity, but this was delicious. DH said it reminded him of the food he ate in Hong Kong when he was there for work. I did add a little garlic chile paste for some heat and a drizzle of sesame oil.

This recipe is perfect. I minced the ginger and garlic, fried it crisp, removed it and then added it back in with the vegetables. I also added bok choy. No more take-out for me.
