"I've been making this recipe since it was first published. I don't use the Minute Rice but instead use left over or freshly cooked jasmin rice. I use whatever meat I have on hand (have made with chicken, pork, steak and without any meat at all). We eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner (in face I fixed it this am). I've used snow pea pods or simply peas instead of the asparagus - again whatever I have on hand. I always use garlic and I find a bit of sesame oil added at the very end of cooking time adds a lot to the recipe."

"We loved it. I use whole grain brown rice instead of instant, so I cooked the rice in my rice cooker earlier in the day, which made putting this all together a snap. Bagged coleslaw made this filling and easy. My kids even had seconds and thirds of this dish. I also don't use reduced sodium soy, so I don't know if that would affect the taste."

"Great favor. I used left over medium-rare tri-tip, sliced thin and in 1 in pieces. I added 2 cloves of crushed garlic, a little grated ginger, and some crushed pepper flakes. Really yummy."

"Good! I replaced the asparagus w/ frozen brocolli. I also added minced garlic when cooking the beef and a few sprinkles of beef buillion and a tiny bit of water when I added the veggies. I also added a shake or two of the crushed red pepper to give it some zip. It turned out great!"

"This recipe was good. However, my family prefers the stir fry we usually do. We use whatever veggies we have on had, a cubed pork chop, garlic, and add a mix of soy and teriyaki sauce."
