    Really liked it. The Sauce didn't quite thicken enough but was still tasty. I found the chefs video here - Will make again and very versatile in terms of ingredients. Thank you Jet

    Can you show the pan more often than the cook so I can get a better idea of what is happening with the food? Also he seems to be adding much more of the oyster sauce and Sesame oil so how much more cornstarch would be needed?

    turned out good! The one complaint I have is making the noodles should have been one of the first steps. He bought precooked noodles, and I was not prepared for this at all.

    it was amazing but if u are making it for more than 3 people make sure you double the measurements on the sauce ingredients.

    I love this recipe! It's easy and delicious. I've done it without the oyster sauce and with it ....get the oyster sauce.
