Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is another favorite we had on the farm. We did not have any Chinese restaurants where we lived nor did we really know about Chinese food. This recipe is delicious! We often served crispy noodles on top and that made it even better. Using left-over pork roast is great with this recipe.
