      We liked this very much. I did make some changes. I added about 1/2 lb ground pork, and used 1 red and 3 very small green bell peppers, cut in strips, which I sauteed with the garlic and ginger. I also used Chinese rice wine instead of sherry, and looking at the recipe now, I realize that I completely forgot the hoisin sauce. Will try to remember next time. However, I thought the amounts and kinds of seasonings were very good, even without. I used 2 teaspoons szechwan chili paste this time, but intend to use 3 teaspoons, if making it just for myself.

      I made this almost exactly as posted, except I used 1 tsp Thai red curry paste because I did not have the Szechwan chili pepper paste. I also added a med. zucchini. It turned out great! I don't know how people are getting away with less oil. I needed the entire 1/4 cup, maybe more. Eggplant just sucks it up. Besides, it was not at all greasy this way. Make sure to cook the eggplant til soft (either in the 1st or second phase of its cooking). Next time I will be a bit more generous with the sauce. I think this will be my stirfry of choice for some time to come. DELICIOUS!
