    Beautiful BC's Note:

    This is a very tasty dish that I adapted from a cookbook called Thai Cooking & More. It's a family favourite and easy to do after a long day at work. We serve it over rice. When using sherry, I always use the real thing from the liquor store - never the stuff you can get at the local market. Keeps forever and is used in a lot of the asian recipes.

      This turned out perfectly! I only made a couple of changes, the can of baby corn that I thought I still had, was no where to be found so I used slices of fresh corn on the cob (microwaved til tender) instead and I added some bamboo shoots that I did find!! Love the amount of spices! Also added a touch of rice wine vinegar and mirin but it really wasn't needed... Fresh ginger and fresh garlic are always great! Made for ZWT4 while travelling around with the Babes of Zaarland.

      This was wonderful! I am reviewing it for ZWT5 and we loved this recipe. Very easy and quick to make, it was a delightful dinner! I did add some mushrooms to the recipe, but everything else was pretty much as listed. Thank you for a great recipe!
