This had great flavor. Often recipes on here are lacking oomph. Not this one. Even the 6 yr old liked it. One can easily add more chili garlic if they want more spice. I followed recipe as is and it was perfect. Hubby said this needs to be made monthly.
I absolutely loved this! It was so easy and delicious! I will be adding it to my menu!
My 2year old son loved it but my husband and I did not. Too sweet and not enough veggies. I would perhaps try it again with some carrots or bean sprouts thrown and some sriracha.
Pretty good. I left out the peanuts and I too could not find fish sauce so I used the additional soy sauce. It was good but don't know if I would make again. My husband really enjoyed it.
Wonderful recipe. This is a family favorite!
