Reviews for Asparagus Stir-Fry
"Loved the sauce. Even better when I added chicken. If you're in a hurry you can use frozen stir fry veggies too."
"We LOVE this recipe!! I even added about a 1/3 cup sliced bell pepper to the stir fry. One night I added cooked & cubed chicken and served over rice. Another night I doubled the sauce and added bite sized slices of cooked pork loin and cooked multigrain angelhair pasta. My boyfriend's son swore we ordered take out, and he's a picky eater."
