    You said to previous person you can use black bean sauce if you’re not using this recipe.

    Very nice! I doubled the ingredients and tripled the amount of the black bean sauce. I also added carrot, Asian greens and broccoli and served with rice, we will definitely be having this again.

    Absolutely delicious!! I left the capsicum out and added sliced carrot. it’s one of my partners fav Chinese dishes and always orders with carrots only. I tried to replicate lol.
    Got the seal of approval and asked to have again next week!
    Will add black beans and broccoli next week ?
