Directions

We thought this was really yum Dan! I used lite soy sauce and because I didn't have black vinegar, I used rice vinegar instead. This is a keeper and thank you so much!

This is one of the yummiest Chinese dish I have had from here!! Thank you so much for a great tasting recipe. I doubled the recipe and used Szechuan peppercorns instead because we enjoy them more than regular peppercorns in Chinese food. This is definitely a keeper!

This came together really fast which is nice. We like spicy and I thought this would be spicer than it was. I served this Jasmine rice and some stir fried veggies.
