I've made this multiple times. I serve with a little soy sauce, egg rolls, and a fortune cookie to complete the meal. Easy Asian dish.


Quick, easy, and tasty!


I found this recipe when I was in high school home economics class just learning how to cook. Ten years, one kid and one husband later I'm still making it. Its easy and tasty.


This is wonderful and so easy. It's inexpensive to make and doesn't call for a lot of ingredients. What more could you ask for. :)
