MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 10, 2015

"Really liked this, partially due to the texture of the particular meat I used, but the taste of the dish was really intense, and the cayenne pepper added a perfect amount of heat to it. I personally used a bit less brown sugar than it called for, and I also added minced garlic to the sauce mixture because the wife and I are big Garlic fans. All in all, a great stir-fry; will make again!"
