      Wow, what an awesome recipe--I'd give it 10 stars if I could. As others suggested, I doubled the amount of cashews and did add a small red bell pepper (1" dice). I too would double the chili paste next time, and there definitely will be a next time! Thanks for sharing this great recipe--now DH and I can dine on homemade Chinese food that's better than most take-out.

      This was definitely a hit at my house. I didn't have oyster sauce on hand but everything else was. To make up for the missing oyster sauce I used a full tablespoon of the hot chili paste. As the hoisin tends to add a sweet brown sugary flavor, my family could go hotter with this. So next time I'll sub hot chili sesame oil instead of all plain sesame. The sauce itself was a perfect consistency. Often we find the sauces are just too thin but this one had a nice thickened texture & was more reminiscent of a restaurant dish. Thanks for sharing, Brooklynne! Made & enjoyed for the Unrated Asian recipe tag game.

      Although I don't make many recipes using the 2 sauces at the top of the ingredient list, I did make this recipe pretty much as written, although I doubled the amount of cashews, something the 2 of us are really nuts about! Served this over a combo of brown rice, peas & pea pods! VERY, VERY TASTY! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the current Unrated Asian Recipe Tag Game]
