"This was pretty good, next time I will add some sliced mushrooms to it. Only thing I changed was to replace the soy sauce with Bragg Liquid Aminos bc it is non GMO."

"Very good flavor, a little time consuming but worth it for dinner. Needed more crunchy vegetables and there was plenty of the sauce to support them. I like my stir frys with a lot of veggies. We served over quinoa instead of brown rice and it was very good."
