I added an extra clove of garlic to try to comp..." See moreensate. I used olive oil instead of canola, and I skipped steaming them.

(WOW, I can add to this review weeks later! :D) Got the right ingredient - chili garlic sauce - & it is very good. This is one we'll use over & over. My three stars earlier is now four & a half. What the heck, I'll give it a five. This one's good."
