I worked in a Chinese restaurant for a time and this was my very
favorite dish that they made and not every Chinese Restaurant offers it on their menu. I searched everywhere on the internet to find this recipe, but it just wasn't there. Therefore, I did my best to create from memory and feel it's very close to the original.
