      This was an interesting experience, and resulted in a reasonably good meal. Nashi is the Japanese name for Asian pears, which are eaten crisp, not soft. They are in season now so I decided to make this. Although I found out a lot about choko online, I didn't find any at the supermarket. I used winter melon instead. I reduced the beef to 300 g because we like more vegetables than meat. I followed the other ingredients and amounts as well as I could, except for using homemade chicken stock in place of water. Next time I try something like this I will fry the nuts separately, as it was hard to get them cooked through without having the onion burn. I wasn't sure what kind of chili sauce was needed, so used Chinese chili bean sauce. I have been looking at this recipe for over a year. I'm glad I finally got to it. Thank you for posting it.
