    JoyfulCook's Note:

    As good as you can get in any restaurant. Its not hard to prepare at all and the flavour is a real taste sensation. The combination of the vegetables with the meat is delicious and just enough heat and spice to give this dish the nod from everyone.

      We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely dish for dinner tonight. I had extra meat, so doubled everything. For the veggies, I went for lots of colour and used snow peas, bok choy, red bell pepper (capsicum), young corn and red onion. It looked sensational.
      But the recipe refers to Spicy and I wished it had been a bit spicier. I didn't have szechuan hot bean sauce, so used a New Zealand hot chilli sauce called 'Fire', but it still wasn't anything more than warm. So I expect this will be perfect for people who don't want too much heat. Thanks so much for posting. Will make again, but will add more heat.
