I made this tonight for my toddler’s dinner. It was a hit. I added a dab of molasses as I didn’t have brown sugar and a dab of hoisin sauce. The recipe is delicious and cooked up beautifully. Definitely a keeper. Thank you, Natalie.

Good! The picky one ate it. I oversteamed the broccoli because it cooked down a lot once added to the sauce.
