This was very good! We had a late dinner so we were looking for something quick. We threw this in with ground turkey, bamboo shoots, baby corn, and water chestnuts and served over rice. Also used only 1 onion, diced canned tomatoes, and powdered ginger. I will definitely make this again.

This sauce is like one my mother cooks a fair bit. I was suprised at the way the tomatoes went with the soya sauce and ginger to be honest. I used this as a base for a vegetable stir fry. I parboiled snap peas, carrots, baby corn and then tossed these into the sauce with some fresh button mushrooms, cabbage and green caspicum. The sauce isn't overly spicy, a good basic recipe to know. My only change was to only use one whole onion.



This sauce was different, but good. I found it be both sweet & salty....a taste I am not use to. I did find the salt a little over-powering at first (I don't think it needs the extra 1/2 tsp as the soy sauce has plenty of salt already!). I would try again.
