Made this using merlot instead of sherry and it turned out perfectly. What a lovely stir fry this is! Super easy to put together. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for the Alphabet Soup Recipe Tag game.

Excellent stir fry recipe. If you get everything ready ahead of time it takes minutes to make. I thought I had sherry in the house - last minute no sherry - I used equal amounts of Brandy Excellent.. Use the full amounts of the onions, garlic & ginger - they are so tasty on your rice. Thanks Derf for a very enjoyable meal. Love your recipes.
