Our bottle of sesame oil was getting a bit long in the tooth, so I finally remembered to replace it. Also discovered “ginger in a tube”. Sounds disgusting, but it turned out to be quite delightful. Fresh ginger is preferable, of course, but RV refrigerators tend to be small, so this concentrated paste is quite a logical method of imparting the lovely taste without the bulk (and spoilage) of fresh ginger root.
The two flavors together really made this dish sing! Of course I don’t understand Chinese, so I have no idea what they were saying! ;-> Unfortunately there was only a tiny bit of leftover deliciousness. We’ll be fighting over it at lunchtime today.
For those who would like to give this dish a whirl, here is a list of the ingredients I used. Obviously any veggies that you have on hand would be just as good – carrots would have added a nice color splash. I was just too lazy to peel them. Leave out the meat if you are of that persuasion.
Red and green peppers
Bits of chicken
