Is the celery a requirement?

Haven't made this recipe yet... but sure would be nice if you could add a photo of the finished meal. I only added a Rating because your site won't allow submission of my Comment without a 'Rating', so this rating is not a true reflection of anything. I was simply requesting a photo to the recipe. I never buy cookbooks which have no pictures.

My family really enjoyed this dish; it was flavorful and filling. We added broccoli and carrots.

Wonderful recipe! I too used broth instead of water and occasionally substitute sliced water chestnuts or bamboo shoots for bean sprouts. Can even skip the marinating when in a hurry. This is a definite "keeper".

Very adaptable to whatever you have on hand. I replaced the water with chicken broth and added some red pepper flakes. I also used fresh bean sprouts. Served over brown rice. This is a definite repeater.
