I agree with Jenyoun--this is too sweet. Next time I will not add the sugar. I used a pre-prepared cole slaw mix of cabbage and carrots and added fresh bean sprouts. It also needs more spice and heat--next time will add sriracha sauce , red pepper flakes and top if off with fresh lime. I think the fish sauce, peanuts and fresh cilantro are key elements to include in this recipe.
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.
