This is a popular dish in our home. It tastes good, and stir-frying food is a method of cooking I really enjoy. It's also a quick way to cook food, and, what's more, it's a healthy way to prepare it, too! I hope you'll try it.

"The apricots discentegrated and there was a huge lack of flavor. I wouldn't have minded a little bit of apricot juice to add something to the flavor. WILL NOT make again."
