We thought this was delicious for dinner tonight. I bought an UNsalted Swanson beef broth, which let me add a TB of fish sauce and 2 tsp. hoisin sauce without overdoing the sodium. I also let the broth mixture simmer more like 20 minutes, which probably concentrated the flavor. I used bok choi instead of spinach (also more flavor). I think this recipe serves 3 people unless you have lots of sides. For us, it was a one-dish meal with a small fruit salad.
