    Though I saw sck's comment, I didn't heed it. sck, I will never do that again! Disappointment at the dinner table, as this dish had no distinct flavor, though it seemed healthy enough with its peas and carrots. I even researched oyster sauce, and bought one recommended somewhere - serious eats? chowhounds? not sure. I selected this book for a cookbook club dinner, and last night was my test drive of this recipe (largely selected because I can make it in my electric frying pan, appliances still not hooked up). I will select something else. I don't know why people (such as this author) stte that tofu takes of the flavor of the sauce. I find it very difficult to get tofu to take up flavor, though of course if you take a bit of tofu with the sauce, you get the sauce flavor along with the bland smoothness that is tofu.
