My good friend Sandra asked me to remake her non-Atkins friendly recipe of this dish. I added more veggies and I like it a lot, I hope she, as well as all of you, enjoy it too.

  1. 🙂 Girl, this sounds real good. Cornstarch, emphasis on “corn”, has 7 carbs per tbsp., so I’d have to use xanthan gum to thicken instead. If you haven’t used xanthan in Chinese food yet, I can tell you I’ve had real good luck using it in stir fry dishes dishes. And as always, “A little dab’ll do ya.” (oh, I forgot, you’re probably too young to appreciate the reference to that old TV commercial for Brylcream for men’s hair). There I go I’m dating myself again. 🙂

    1. Hahaha Peggy! I thought about using Xanthum Gum, the original recipe calls for 2 Tbsp of cornstarch, so i cut it in half this time, I am still gonna play with this one a bit before I am fully satisfied. I do remember that commercial! LOL! 🙂

  2. I have made this recipe more time than I can remember now!
    I remember asking Cori to find a low carb way of making the original recipe. Corn starch or no cornstarch, It is my absolute favorite!

    My family adores it and asks all the time for me to make it for them. Hubby tried to get me to make some and bring it to work for him and the guys. I told him NOT a chance as I know I would have to make it all the time for them! I have a hard enough time keeping up with my families request for it.

    I did try it with chicken and I have used beef too. All were a great meal!

    Thanks again Cori!
    Your the best!
