Made it healthier. i barfed in it and it was actually edible after that! - 04 Jun 2011


Altered ingredient amounts. I added only 1/3c of the hoisin, soy sauce and increased the water by an extra 1/2c or so. Brown sugar I left at approx 1/2c. Was lovely flavour. I thickened it with cornflour towards the end. Also threw in some frozen beans 10 mins before serving. - 30 May 2011


I must agree with mattnkaid...the flavour was very strong in this dish...i still enjoyed it however next time i make it i would use less of the sauces perhaps or something else to help difuse the flavour just a little... i don't think it was the amount of time mattnkaid that made it a strong flavour...i'd also cook it a little longer...make the meat and onion a little more tender... - 26 Nov 2010
