    What brand of taucheo sauce would you recommend?

      I’m currently using the “Tai Hua” brand. I picked it up randomly from the supermarket though, feel free to use any brand you come across.

    Thank you for these simple recipes. I am not much of a cook. But being a mother, I feel the need to learn to cook for them. Will definitely try out.

    My kind of stir-fry with one-skillet everything! Veggies and proteins all in one. Just cook some rice and a meal is ready :)
