MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 17, 2012

Whole family (including kids aged 10, 8, 5, and 2) loved the flavor. I loved the suggested recipe that accompanied (sesame green beans with red peppers) as an alternative to typical stirfry veggies. This has become my new go-to for stirfry.

Excellent taste!! This recipe is a keeper - my 3 yr old and 6 yr old sons really liked it. We definitely want to eat this again. I made the side that is shown - Sesame Green Beans - which is also a ToH recipe. They were a hit, too!
