It's hard to believe that something that comes together this easily could be tasty and lower in fat. This dish is pretty zippy, but if you like your stir-fries extra spicy, increase the red pepper flakes a bit. -Jenna Noel of Glendale, Arizona

Leave out the vinegar and it would be closer to a five star.

Pretty good-tasted like take out. I thought it needed more sauce, though-next time I'd double the vinegar sauce.

I loved this recipe. I made extra sauce and added extra red pepper flakes because we love spicy food. Not bland at all. I will definitely make this again.
