Tips & Variations

Wonderful recipe with fantastic flavours. I had actually run out of hoisin sauce, so I had to make my own, and the flavours were just superb. I took the meat out just before the end of cooking and added the corn starch mix, stirred then put the meat back in until it was time. It worked well as the sauce was thicker and tasted delicious. Served with mashed potato's this made for a great winter dish on a very cold night.

What a tasty meal this is. The sauce wouldn't thicken for me so I poured it in a sauce pan and brought it to a boil over medium-high heat then added more cornstarch and water. Deeeelish. We will be enjoying this one again for sure.

Wow! This was really easy and delicious! I refrained from adding or subtracting anything and made as written. The only thing that didn't work for me was the thickening of the broth, but in realit, we didn't care. (It may be due to old cornstarch). I served it on brown rice. DH came back for seconds plus he stated that it was good. Now that may not sound like a great endorsement but for him that is a 5 star review. Made for Billboard tag.
