    Good flavor of the veges against the rice and sauce. The bamboo shoots and water chestnuts added to flavor. Added some shredded cheese on top and this dish was a hit.  -  07 May 2013


    This is a very quick and tasty recipe. I have made it several times and have used cabbage in place of bamboo shoots and other veggies as well. I also put about 1/3 cup of white wine because I like the taste of a wine sauce.  -  16 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a very versatile recipe. I added garlic, pepper, red pepper and onion flakes to boost up the flavor a bit. I've made it with chicken and also with shrimp. It's easily adjusted to what you have in your pantry.  -  16 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
