I just made this for dinner, it is quick, easy and above all really really yummy. I added celery, and garnished at the end with crushed peanuts. Really delicious. Have all your ingredients ready beforehand though, as once it starts cooking it is really fast paced, and there isn't time to stop and start cutting up veggies. I also added a small bit of shaohsing rice wine it adds another lovely authentic chinese taste. Yummy!
