"Quick, easy & delicious! Whole family loved it! I added carrots & used green onion!"
"Wow! This is a new favorite for the husband (and myself!) before he could even finish his plate he was begging me to add it to the book. I added green beans and it was even more amazing! I was skeptical about the cornstarch but it made the meat soooo tender. Just like something you'd get at an authentic Chinese restaurant. Will defiantly be a regular dish at our house."
"Very good! I wouldn't change a thing."
