I'm making this tonight but noticed recipe ingredients do not call for celery but the instructions do. Think I'll add about 1/2 cup celery.

Thank you for the recipe. I prepped night before since I had to cook in the morning to take to a sick friend who requested this very thing. With everything washed, chopped and ready to go it took me about 30 minutes cook time. I used powdered ginger and no sherry.

I would not use powdered ginger in place of fresh. It's not the same. Also, you can use rice wine instead of sherry.
