Wasnt what I expected.. very bland,had to add extra seasoning.
This is a great basic stir fry recipe. Other than adding some bamboo shoots I had on hand, I followed the recipe exactly. I didn't have any Hoisin sauce so googled a great recipe and made it myself--yum! The beauty of this recipe is all the healthy, delicious stuff you could add to make it like a new dish every time.
This was really good! I made exact to the recipe, but can think of a few ways to make it my own next time! More veggies, dash of garlic chili paste.
Better than take out and faster! Much better for you, too.
Definitely quick and easy to make! Good flavor and I will make it again with some of the variations that others have suggested.
