    Snowbunny Andorra's Note:

    From BBC's Chinese Food Made Easy, the best recent TV cookery show. Very simple to make, and tasty! I added a little more five-spice than the original recipe. Omit the chilli sauce if you wish, or add a little more to give it extra zing. If you don't have groundnut oil (peanut oil), use vegetable oil, NOT olive oil, which is too strong flavoured. Serves two as a main course, or four as a side dish.

      Very, very good. Extremely easy to make and with a lot of flavour. Made exactly as stated. Maybe i'll try it with some more vegetables as a reviewer suggested as this recipe will certainly be made many more times. Thanks for posting.

      Extremely good and easy to make, just a little prep, then cook it off! I only had a green bell-pepper, so used that, and then also added finely sliced carrot (1), zucchini (3 small), and 3 small yellow pattypans, all finely sliced, because we like a lot of veg. A lovely meal, ideal for a midweek supper, thanks, Snowbunny! made for PAC Fall 2008.
