I'm not sure why, since all the right ingredients seemed to be here, but this was really kind of boring. I would have thought the oyster sauce, soy sauce and garlic all would have contributed great flavor but it all just sort of got lost. Perhaps some sherry, toasted sesame oil and chicken broth would have helped. I did back off the pepper, which seemed excessive, because as the saying goes, you can always add more but you can't take it away. I also steered away from the cooking method as directed. Since some of the ingredients require different cooking times I cooked them separately, then combined it all at the end. I added mushrooms and served this over rice noodles, which was a nice combo, but unfortunately tonight's dinner was rather forgettable.
