We like hot spicy foods, so we always add the highest amount of cayenne pepper called for here. No matter how much you use, this dish has just the right amount of pizzazz!

"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."

"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!!"
