It comes as a bit of an embarrassment that this recipe was posted by the first owner of the recipe in response to a recipe request I made in 2002. Shamefully, I had forgotten about it. It came to light again just this week while making Potscrubber's Ramen Noodle Egg Foo Yung. I finally made the sauce recipe to accompany Potsie's recipe, as he suggested. For the bottom line, the sauce was good, but a tad salty for me, so I would cut back a little on the oyster sauce by about a teaspoon if I made this again. Thanks for posting. ~Sue

I made this to go with Pot Scrubber's Ramen Noodle Egg Foo Young and it was great! I added 1/4 teaspoon of dried ginger to spice it up a bit. Easy to make and delicious.

I've just made this up ready to have on some egg foo yung for lunch. Really nice sauce. Instead of cooking on the stove top I cooked in the microwave in my pyrex jug. Thanks for posting.

I made this with the ramen noodle egg foo yung. I made it for my parents and my mom didn't have beef bouillon or beef broth, but she had chicken bouillon instead. It came out absolutely yummy!

This was just OK. I think it would be better for a single person. Easy to fix, but my DH didn't think it was great. I liked it OK.

I used a sodium free packet of beef seasonings to make the drippings and a light soy sauce as that is what I had on hand. Made this to accompany Ramen Noodle Egg Foo Yung.

We enjoyed this sauce a lot. I was making Ramen Noodle Egg Foo Yung and on the chef's recommendation made this sauce to go with it. I will be using the sauce often for other things too. I used homemade beef stock and didn't have a problem with saltiness. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
