"Great...I love the flavor, but due to sweetness, I would cook broccoli and then add it with chicken and pasta."

"This was tasty - I added crushed red pepper as it was a little on the sweet side, and I like some kick. I also used frozen broccoli florets; one of those steam-in-the-bag deals. I just partially steamed before stir frying. Very easy!"

"One of the best stir-frys I have ever made and all with simple ingredients. I did not have hoisin sauce so I used additional soy sauce and I did not add gingerroot or peanuts...was still amazing! :)"
