This is a recipe from Dorothy Huang, a wonderful Chinese cook in Houston, Tx. It is really fairly easy. Don't forget to start your rice before you begin to cook!

This is so tasty. It's also great with beef and beef broth, but all other ingredients the same!

This was good but beware while making the thickening sauce to stop adding ingredients when you get to the sesame oil. All the ingredients below that are used for other steps. I effectively doubled the oil and salt by mistake. It was still tasty, even though it was like eating an oily block of salt.

only thing i suggest is to make more sauce and to add a little rice wine vinegar or else all the soy sauce makes it a little salty.
