    Throw in a handful or two of bean sprouts the last few minutes. Tasted great!

    I cannot use too much soy sauce. I used 2 tablespoons and found that was enough. I also reduced sugar to just 1 tablespoon but I added 2 tablespoons of Oyster sauce. The result is good looking and tastes a lot better.
