MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2013

"I'm sorry, but it doesn't take that long to grate some fresh ginger, which keeps quite well in the fridge - and mince fresh garlic! Plus, chili powder? The taste was acceptable, but needed red pepper flakes rather than chili powder and the 'texture', with all the powdered seasonings, was powdery/grainy. Also, fresh veggies take only a few minutes to chop."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2012

"After reading the comments of others, I tried this recipe but substituted fresh vegetables. I used cubed chicken breast instead of steak. I added a little crushed red pepper. We loved it! I rated it 4 stars because the frozen vegetables would have been mushy, as someone else previously commented. I will definitely make this again!"
