"Delish. I doubled the sauce and meat. Should have doubled the spinach also. Next time :)"
"Quick and delicious!"
"Really good, I added maybe a spoon or so of brown sugar to the marinade and that made a big difference!!! And tossed in fettuccine noodles, kids loved it. Definite keeper.tnx"
"Delicious! Omitted water chestnuts and chili pepper as hubby not a fan of either. Added fresh mushrooms and thinly sliced red pepper. Also added some uncooked shrimp which I cleaned and put some of the hoisin sauce mixture on and let it merinate also. Excellent addition. Added them the same time as I added the fresh spinach. Excellent flavor in this recipe. Better than LoMein from the local take out."
"I omitted the water chestnuts as neither my fianc? nor I like them. This just didn't do it for us. The meat was tough and just not enough flavor."
