Oh! I had such high hopes for this! Unfortunately, it just didn't do it for us. I used soy sauce instead of fish sauce and used the oyster sauce. It was just too overpowering for our tastes. I had to have done something wrong also, because it didn't look like the picture (colorwise). My sauce was super dark from the oyster sauce and was really thick. I ended up having to water it down. I definately messed up there:)?! I'll give it another shot later, play around with the ingredients and review it again.
Really good. Simple, easy and nothing to it.....Definitely a keeperrrr!!
This was wonderful and got rave reviews from the family. I added carrots, asparagus, broccoli and pea pods to round it out a little, and then doubled the sauce. I also added some fresh ginger at the same time that I added the garlic to the pan. There wasn't anything left between three of us. I will definitely be making this again!
