Reviews for Vegetable Chicken Stir-Fry
"I followed the recipe as written and didn't think the sauce had much taste. I ended up doubling the sauce but adding regular soy sauce to the second time which added more flavor. I also let the meal sit for about a half an hour before serving so the flavor would meld a bit more. It was good but not great."
"Very tasty! I maybe added more ginger than the recipe called for and added a dash of rice wine."
"I thought this was flavorless. I used everything the recipe called for except I used full sodium soy sauce and added salt. It still was disappointingly bland. I threw the rest in the trash. Not sure why it received so many good reviews. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who likes flavor."
"Used the veggies that came in my weekly CSA - broccoli, bok choy, carrots..added fresh ginger and water chestnuts. Family raved about it."
