    lazyme's Note:

    This is a great side dish with grilled meats or Asian entrees. It goes especially well with grilled flank steak and rice. From Gourmet, April 1995.

      Delicious change for asparagus but I used a bit less asparagus than called for and subbed white wine for the sherry. We served this with Soy Glazed Salmon Kabobs for a delicious and almost no work dinner! Thanks for sharing this keeper. Made for ZWT6.

      Maked this for ZWT4 for team Los Jefes de la Cocina. I followed the recipe as is and served it with Jasmine Rice and the flank steak (as suggested). I loved it and will definitely make it again!

      I loved this recipe! I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. The garlic and ginger may be a little intense for little ones, though. Made for ZWT4. Thanks for a quick and easy side dish lazyme!
