"After reading the reviews I reduced the orange peel to half teaspoon and substituted red pepper for the carrots. Carrots never seem to cook enough in a stir fry. I guess I could have cooked them a little before adding the other vegetables. We did like this recipie."

"First thing I would like to note is that the recipe time isn't quick. Most rice takes at LEAST 30 to 45 minutes to get done cooking if you want them to be done well (Not instant rice.)

I thought the dish was alright. The orange was very strong, and I would totally add something that has other sauces that would go well with it.
I won't make it again, but that's because I didn't really like the taste. Texture was fine though."

"Made the recipe as written. The orange sauce was bitter. We added Sweet and Sour dipping sauce at the table to improve the flavor. Probably won't make this one again."

"HBcook again - I added 4 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce. The sauce needed it!"

"This is a nice weeknight recipe. I thought it was too strong on the orange but my husband loved it."

"This was wonderful and easy to make. The cashews and chow mein noodles give it a nice texture. I had my husband grill a pork tenderloin for the pork in the recipe. The only things I changed were to reduce the amount of ginger and I sliced the green onions instead of julienning them. This will be regular recipe in our menu rotation!"
