MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 5, 2015

"The secret is in the sauce! So flavorful and yummy. I omitted the ginger-root and added a can of water chestnuts for added crunch. I made it my a wok and it was done in 30 minutes with no prep before. Leftovers were even better."

"i made this as is with the exception of romaine instead of Boston. I put it in a flour tortilla - more carbs and calories - but it was great. Tomorrow I'll eat it in the lettuce wrap."

"Doubled the recipe and so glad I did...gave us mucho leftovers!! Added sliced water chestnuts otherwise followed recipe verbatim. Absolutely delicious...couldn't stop eating it and then looked forward to leftovers next day. Used iceberg, romaine and Boston and each was fantastic! Do yourself and your family a favor and try this recipe!"

"I made this recipe as is and it was delicious. Boston lettuce was too flimsy and I would use iceberg lettuce next time. The next day, we had leftovers and put it in fajita wraps. Still delicious."

"I love this dish. I substitute fresh grated carrots, sugar snap peas, red and yellow pepper and water chestnuts. I put the fresh veggies in toward the end of cooking so that they stay crunchy."
