Personal Notes:
I got this recipe in an evening adult education class some years ago, and it remains one of my favorites. Small jars of oyster sauce and sesame oil are availabe at most grocery stores.
TIP: Sesame oil gives food that familiar Chinese restaurant food taste, but is bitter if cooked at high heat. Just stir it in and serve.
