"I will make again. Very tasty. I did start with 2 slices bacon chopped and it added more flavor."

"Very easy and delicious. I substituted yellow onion for green onion and just cooked it for longer."

"I was disappointed in this recipe because it didn't taste the same as this dish at my favorite restaurant. I would add other sauces to it, like maybe teriyaki sauce to enhance the flavor."
