    Olha's Note:

    Spicy and hot, this is one Chinese dish that belies the myth that you'll be hungry an hour after eating Chinese food. The meat can be marinated one hour or prepared ahead and left to marinate in the refrigerator, ready for a super-quick supper. Serve with plain rice.

      This is very good. Nicely seasoned and appropriately spicy. I make a similar recipe, myself, but without so much seasoning. Thank you for sharing this recipe for an easy to make and delicious dish.
