I'm a bit worried about a couple of ingredients in this recipe: the garlic powder and the Tabasco, neither of which is usually found in recipes for Chinese food.  Did this recipe originate in the USA, by any chance?

Possibly- I seem to remember a Ken Hom recipe a lot like it. You could always swap the garlic powder for finely chopped garlic and the tabasco for red chili paste
