Reviews for Stir-Fry Rice Bowl
"My husband loves spicy stir-fry dishes so when I saw the photo of this recipe I had to try it. The ingredients are staples in my kitchen, so it was easy for me to make right away. I agree that the addition of the poached egg in place of meat was great. The creaminess of the yoke complimented the spice from the chili paste. A delicious, low-calorie, nutritious, quick dinner that we will repeat!"
