Notes

This is from the wonderful Chanterelle "Staff Meals" cookbook which our friend Dag introduced us to - much easier than it might look with the long-ish ingredients list. When we first discovered it we made it once a week for a while. This dish it not hard; the key is to keep stirring, add oil as needed, and line up all your stuff in order next to the wok.
