    I was looking for a quick easy meal with ingredients I had one hand and this recipe fit the bill. Like some other reviewers I found the flavor somewhat bland, however others in my household raved about it. More soy sauce would likely help.

    This was easy and I had all the ingredients on hand, no shopping. I added extra soy sauce and garlic powder based on other reviews. Nice flavor.

    This was pretty good and easy. I served it with pan fried noodles and rice. Next time I will add more ginger and pepper flakes. Overall, would recommend!
