MY REVIEW

We all loved this recipe! I finally found a good stir-fry recipe that makes a lot of sauce. My kids love to have a lot of sauce on their rice. This should be rated 7 stars!! Very Good! Thanks.

Reviewed Jul. 3, 2008

I didn't have any cornstarch to prepare this, so I left it out and the water. It was a juice instead of a sauce/glaze. It was very good. I will diffently add to my recipes!!
