“Here is the fastest stir-fry ever! Fresh ginger is a must for this recipe and really sparks it up.” Our test panel agreed and just raved about the splash of orange flavor. Nancy Bellomo - St. Charles, Missouri

    I made this recipe as the directions said to, I think it has a strange flavor. My fiancee took one bite and fed the rest to our dog. I think it would taste fine to somebody who likes a high acidity flavor but for un-health nuts like us, this was a really long way from traditional chinese take-out recipes.
