Please don’t get nervous when you see how long this recipe is. It’s actually not complicated, it’s just that the ingredients repeat themselves, and it’s easier to group them by purpose (marinade, sauce, etc.). And, the main reason I made this was because I didn’t need to buy anything. I had all of these ingredients because they are very common for Chinese recipes. We were having a small send-off meal for Lisa who was on her way to Thailand for a couple weeks. We had been planning to have a dish from K’s parents, but when Lisa visits, you have to cook.
