My husband is chinese so we have the Shiao hsing on hand at all times. I add minced garlic at the same time as the whole cloves. I also add chopped zucchini the last 5 minutes or so to have a vegetable in it.

This recipe was very good, but I feel like it was missing something. I added a few small minced shallots, minced some of the garlic and increased the amounts of the soy sauce and sherry a bit. Overall, very good and I will certainly be making again.

This was awesome! My family loved it, and my husband said it was almost as good as when he gets it at our favorite Chinese place!
