Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook for a few minutes, just until fragrant. Crumble in the pork; cook and stir until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the shrimp; cook and stir until pink and opaque.
  2. Mix in the soy sauce, sugar and green onions. Pour in 2 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Simmer for 3 minutes. Stir together remaining water and cornstarch. Stir into the skillet gently and allow to simmer until thickened. Turn off the heat to ensure a smooth sauce. Stir in the eggs, and serve immediately over rice.

I agree that the recipe, as is, is bland. I changed the 1 c water to chiken stock since I saw that as part of the sauce on a different web site. Much more flavorful. Also, I added a T of fermented black beans which I rinsed before adding after I stir fried the shrimp. This was much more like the flavor I get from restaurant take out. Good basic recipe.

I was reading the review by Ms. Bowes. Maybe the reason it tasted a little on the bland side is that there is a discrepancy in the amount of water to use in the mixture. It probably should be 1 cup of water and not the 2 cups you are instructed to use. The tablespoon of water to a tablespoon of starch is correct.

This was very quick and simple to make - took almost no time at all actually! It was OK tasting, different and pleasant but I thought it was rather bland - needed some more flavor. Also, although it was OK in it's own right, this isn't at all like the shrimp in lobster sauce from our local Chinese restaurant. I'm going to keep looking. Thanks for the recipe.
