"This was very easy and quick to make. I like things spicy, so added some crushed red chili peppers. It was great on steamed rice with a salad on the side. Will definitely make again!"

"I followed the recipe, and found it to be super bland. At the last minute, I added soy sauce and powdered ginger, which made it ok. No one is asking for it again."
