    the fresh ginger and garlic are great together. I used tomatoe paste instead of ketchup and a little extra soy sauce in my marinade.

    WOW!! this recipe was amazing. I didnt have green onions so i sprinkled a little bit dry minced onions on it and it tasted amazing. While I was stir frying the meat and veggies I was baking fried rice in the oven. It was quick and easy. Even my picky fiance was impressed.

    I did add a little extra ginger and a little extra garlic but I wish I would have a made a bigger batch of this dish. It was unbelievably tasty and flavorful. There was hardly any left over!
