"My husband and I both love peanut butter, but we found this sauce to be too strong, and the broccoli didn't seem to meld well with the sauce. If I ever made this recipe again, I would definitely omit the broccoli. I sprinkled peanuts over the stir fry and that added to the flavour."

"I've made this recipe several times. The only difference I make is that I use sesame seed oil instead of canola oil. This gives it a more distinct oriental flavor."

"This has become a family favorite in our house, all 5 of my kids & my husband adore this meal for dinner. I do add a bit more peanut butter & make a double batch as the leftovers are just as good- I store in ziplocks & keep seperated! this is definitely worth trying, & very filling as well. yummm"
