    KateL's Note:

    Entered for safe-keeping, from "Favorite Brand Name Best-Loved Chinese Recipes and More". This is a U.S. family-style recipe. Be sure to wear rubber gloves when handling jalapenos, and avoid touching the area around your eyes before you can wash your hands. If you prefer, substitute 3 1/2 cups cooked brown rice for the cooked white rice.

      While I loved the simplicity and technique of the recipe, neither my husband nor I liked the strong taste of fish sauce in this. We may be biased in favor of soy sauce. However, this is a great basic stir fry recipe and would easily earn five stars if the fish sauce had been lower profile.
