  • add chicken broth (or just water) lightly stir to boiling
  • If needed, stir up the flour mixture in the blow for uniform liquid

  • turn off the heat

For 2 serving, double the amount of the ingredients and cook in a 10-12 in frying  pan.

It’s important that the frying pan is not too big otherwise the ingredients will spread out too much.

Variation of ingredients

Mushroom can be substituted with different kind of mushroom but avoid rehydrated dried mushroom. Sliced bamboo shoot can also be used.  Substitute by volume, not weight.

Different meat such as tenderized beef, peeled shrimps, or oysters.  Substitute by weight.
