    Cooked this but couldn't understand how u'd be able to mix the roux into a small saucepan. My husband ended taking over cooking it by slinging the roux into the main stock and blended it for over 10 minutes whilst it was cooking on a slow heat and mixing it all the while. Fantastic taste and daughter wolfed down nearly 2 bowls of it (she's only 7). Hence 5 stars  -  06 Mar 2016


    This was nice when I first made it and even better the second day. I do think I prefer my usual recipe with sherry instead of soy sauce, it is less salty.  -  24 Feb 2015
