I did season the meat more and the sauce, but other than that, really good meal!

More broth, more mushrooms, more onion - I put in more of everything because I just can’t help myself! But then again, we’ve eaten this many times and know how we like it. Yummy recipe!

Super good! I did change the sauce as it seemed a bit bland and there wasn't enough of it. I added some grated ginger root. I had a smidgen of leftover bottled garlic stirfry sauce I added. Next time I will double the sauce and add the ginger root again. It really improved the taste. Otherwise this was so good. We will be having this again and again.

Not sure why so many 5-star reviews. I thought this was bland and it had no sauce. I did like that it was simple with few steps, but with all the chopping it definitely took longer than 30 minutes. I might try it again but I'd modify it to add a zesty stir-fry sauce next time.

Wonderful recipe. Followed the recipe except: no mushrooms but I think they would be wonderful. Added a minced jalape?o, and a dollop of chili garlic sauce at the end because we love spicy. Served over brown jasmine rice, and it was great. Side dish was cakes with salt and rice wine vinegar.

This is a very quick, tasty recipe. I will add more green onion to this next time and be a little heavier handed with the seasonings. Great for a weekday meal or even lunch.

Pretty great recipe. I added a bit of powdered garlic and used coconut oil for the asparagus-- it still came out delicious, but I'd opt for a different oil next time.
