I’m mystified by all of these reviews... I made this tonight and it was dry and bland. No one liked it at all! Will not be making it again.

My whole family loves this (including my 2 and 4 year old; they can’t eat it fast enough!) I have made it many times and tried with tofu, ground turkey, scrambled eggs, you name it. So versatile!

A really fast and easy meal to prep, especially when using the suggested shortcuts. My husband and I loved it. Definitely a keeper.

Easy, light, delicious! I did use cole slaw mix and it worked great !

We loved it! Quick and light meal. I read previous reviews so I made sure to buy the Chinese 5 spice without reading the the ingredients in the jar, I could have saved myself buying the spice and just added some cinnamon and more ginger. I also just used almost a full 16 oz bag of coleslaw mix to save time. At my local store they had two different kinds of rice noodles, a thin lo mein looking kind and a rounded thin crispy kind.....I used the crispy kind (LaChoy), added some more crunch, we enjoyed it

Great quick meal! I used a bag of coleslaw mix and omitted the noodles. I cut wontons into quarters and deep fried for about 15-20 seconds in peanut oil and served on the side with Sweet Thai Chili.

Egg roll without the roll! Loved it, wouldn't change a thing but put a jar of Colman's English mustard on the table because I didn't have any Chinese hot mustard. Worked perfectly! East meets West!

This is tasty. The recipe sounded good, but I rarely eat pork. A half pound of cooked, shredded chicken was substituted for the pork. and the serving was topped with some duck sauce. 1 serving was only 2 points (WW). It is tasty and filling. MelanieM

If I could give this recipe more stars I would; this was absolutely delicious. Based on earlier reviews, I added a sprinkling of Chinese five spice powder to punch up the spicy level a bit and it was a good move. Next time, I may get more adventuresome and add a little more. I used bagged shredded cabbage (like for making coleslaw) and it made prep even easier. I had purchased a full pound of ground pork, browned the whole pound, adding a little more sesame oil to compensate for the additional pork, then froze half of the meat so that it's ready to use for the next time I make this dish. It's just my husband and me and so we had enough for a second meal; it was just as tasty the second time. His comment tonight, after the leftovers were gone, was "When can we have this again?"
