"only okay. not overly thrilling"
"I made this with Mom's Fried Rice. Mmm, mmmmm, mmmmm, delicious."
"We loved this recipe. I made only a few changes. I omitted the green pepper and added 1/2 cup water chestnuts. I also made an extra half of the sauce, but I think next time I will just double it. I will be making this again!"
"Very good in flavor. Next time I think I will double the sauce, not quite enough for me."
"Easy way to make a tasty Asian inspired dish."
