"Very nice recipe. I wasn't sure if i'd like the tomatoes, but they took on a stewed, steamed quality that tasted really good. Will definitely make this again."

"The only thing I did different was add 2 tbs of brown sugar and with the fresh gingerroot I added grounded ginger. This recipe is delicious, I will add it to my recipe box. I served with marinade cumcumbers and onions. For desert I used an instant pudding and the left over rice making a rice pudding. The entire dinner was less then 1/2 hr cooking."

"This is really yummy! I don't use the tomatoes or mushrooms in mine, but I add sugar snap peas and saute with the peppers. I also increase the ginger to 1 tsp. Super easy to make."

"This is an outstanding recipe. We like our food a little spicy so I used two cloves of garlic and about a tablespoon of ginger. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. This is definitely going into the regular rotation."
