This recipe is from my favorite cookbook, Madame Wong's Long-Life Chinese Cooking, with a few changes by me. The name comes from the Sun Ya restaurant in Shanghai where a chef developed this recipe. This is a very flexible recipe - you can use just about any leftover meat in this, though I've listed just shrimp, chicken and pork. I made this with leftover duck meat once and it was delicious!

Hey Jude!!! I have you to thank for a GREAT LUNCH!!! Had leftover rice, shrimp and chicken so tried this today itself. Very good. I added some 5 spice powder for flavour and used button mushrooms and some bean sprouts too. Did not have sherry wine so used rum and ginger combo (my aunt taught me that this is a replacement for Sherry-I dunno abt sherry wine) but was truly satisfied with the result. Thanks, :)Fay
