MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 28, 2010

I made this exactly as written and my husband and I found it to be well seasoned and perfectly orange. It was subtle, but there. I served this stir fry with a brown rice-wild rice blend from a packet that cooked in the microwave in 90 seconds and I liked the texture this gave it. We just sprinkled some crushed red pepper flakes on top and it was a fabulous week day meal!
