A critical step when using tempeh was left out of this recipe. Tempeh needs to be steamed for 15 - 20 minutes and allowed to return to room temperature before using. That gets rid of the bitterness as well as hydrating it a bit. That's the reason I didn't give this a higher rating. When the tempeh is steamed, this becomes a lovely dish. If you're lucky enough to live in an area where you can buy fresh tempeh, there is no need to steam it. Most of us in the USA have to rely on refrigerated or frozen packaged tempeh.
