"This is my favorite stir-fry dish," says Arleen Gibson of Simcoe, Ontario. "It's so versatile because you can change the meat or veggies to suit your taste...or according to what's in the refrigerator."

MY REVIEW

Haven't made this recipe yet... but sure would be nice if you could add a photo of the finished meal. I only added a Rating because your site won't allow submission of my Comment without a 'Rating', so this rating is not a true reflection of anything. I was simply requesting a photo to the recipe. I never buy cookbooks which have no pictures.

My family really enjoyed this dish; it was flavorful and filling. We added broccoli and carrots.
