  1. I am definitely going to try this recipe. I think I am going to add a little broccoli to it though because I love broccoli.

  2. This looks delicious. I had no idea what hoisin sauce was but Google took care of that problem. I will have to start looking to see if this sauce is available here in my neck of the woods. Do you maybe know of any substitute I could use in the meantime?

    1. Arnold, I don’t know of a substitute for hoisin, but I’ve seen recipes on the internet for making your own. Just Google “hoisin sauce recipe” and you’ll see several. If your grocery has an ethnic or international foods section, that is probably where you’ll find hoisin. It’s common in a lot of Asian recipes.

    1. Thank you, Greg! I do try to make the photos instructional so that inexperienced cooks can be successful with the recipes I post.

  3. It’s only 8:50 a.m. as I’m reading this and boy, oh boy, could I go for it even for breakfast right this very minute! :)

  4. Delicious stir-fry!!! I do the cook rice and the other dish at the same time, too. :) Take care of two things at once. :)
