    Very quick and easy to cook. I divided the recipe in half for 2 people and cooked for 20 minutes then added some cornflower to thicken and a couple of tablespoons of Oyster sauce then cooked for a further 5 minutes without the lid. Wll certainly make again. Thank you for sharing.  -  14 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
