MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 11, 2011

Very tasty, I added bell pepper too. We had no leftovers and I REALLY wanted some more. This will definitely make it to our table regularly.

MY REVIEW

Super easy, inexpensive and quick! Even my husband really liked it and he doesn't normally like asian foods. I did not find it overly salty but did have to add a little extra cornstarch. Great for leftovers too.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2011

I added 1/3 cup of water and 1/2 tsp more of cornstarch to tone down the saltiness and it turned out good.
