      This was good but it was a lot of work. Maybe i would get more efficient if I did it more often. Because I was using a cheap cut of stewing beef, I cooked it in my little crockpot with a can of beef broth and some red pepper flakes for most of the day, which turned out very moist and tender. I then used the broth from the meat instead of the water. The part that I found cumbersome was the stir frying of each of the vegetables individually. I was also not quite sure how you are supposed to crush ginger. I put it through my garlic press and the ginger flavor was quite pronounced. I ended up with quite a mess in the kitchen to clean up. DH liked it a lot; DD and DS preferred to just have the egg rolls and egg drop soup that I served along side.

      I've resolved to learn to cook Chinese food and started with this one and now I'm hooked! I'm glad I made a double batch because I could eat this for a month. The only thing I did different was I added more than double the amount of salt to the vegetables. Guess I was going for that restaurant MSG taste.
