Hamburger Stir-Fry

Here's a quick, easy teriyaki stir fry that uses hamburger instead of the traditional beef strips. It has a nice sauce and is different enough to be a treat for the taste buds! Kathi and John Horst - Westfield, New York

    The Mustard ruined this dish pretty much. Something told me to omit it. Should've went with my instincts.

    I followed the recipe exactly but we did not like this very much. I won't be making again since I had to throw out the leftovers.

    My boys love Chinese take-out, but have never been fans of any recipes I've tried at home. Made with a broccoli based veggie blend, this is one they'll all eat.
