    Brian Holley's Note:

    This ever popular dish from Asia is often spoiled by the thick batter that hides the small piece of meat. This recipe uses little batter, it is cooked with green peppers and bamboo shoots to give a little crunch. Serve with fried rice or noodles, for a real treat.

      Just finished this dinner. It's about time I tried one of your new recipes, Brian H. THIS is good eating. Followed the recipe exact, except used chicken breast rather than pork as it's what I had. This is simple and delicious and missing the pineapple that most restaurants go overboard with, thus, we loved it. For those of you reading this who have not tried a Brian H recipe- please do so. There's a difference between 'making dinner' and cooking. If you really want to cook- try one of his recipes. Always a winner and such fun to make.
