This dish is delicious! A note for first-time makers: when making the cornstarch & water mixture to thicken the sauce, don't add the cornstarch to HOT water or you will end up with a dish full of glue. Add it to cold water and then stir in to thicken the sauce. This may be common knowledge for some but it wasn't for me!

Just to say that in Chineese cooking there are two types of soy sauce "light and dark". Both are used to add salt to a dish, but the dark soy also adds colour. There is no need to add extra salt to a chineese dish if you use soy sauce. You are just doubling your salt intake. You can also get low sodium soy sauce to reduce your salt intake even more.

I have had this dish in many restaurants, and this recipe ranks high on the list! It was very yummy!! I ran into a problem when adding the cornstarch mixture at the end. I added the whole thing at once and my sauce turned into a blobby mush. I just added some water to thin it back out, and it tasted really good. So next time I make it I don’t think I will add the cornstarch or just a little, because the sauce looked perfect before I added it. I will definitely be making this again, and passing on the recipe!
