MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 9, 2011

"This was great. The smell of the garlic and soy sauce was fantastic, and I knew the dish was going to be wonderful. Very easy to make. I substituted turkey cutlets because that's what I had on hand, so I only cooked them for about 20 minutes. Everything else, however, I used as directed. Did not feel it was too much ginger but maybe my 2T was more like 1.5T. Served this with some steamed snap peas drizzled in olive oil. Delicious!"

"This was good but the next time I make it I will not use so much ginger."
