My wife and I are both busy RN's. This recipe was quick, easy, and delicious. I recommend this recipe to anyone who runs short on time in their attempts to prepare a home-cooked meal for the family.

Took the suggestion to double the sauce. Oh My Gosh! It was really good. Hubby requested it again a couple nights ago. Went a step further and added a couple grated carrots and some steamed broccoli florets to the mix. I was out of brown rice so I used Basmati. WoW! This one just keeps on giving and giving!

Fantastic! Comes together quickly and has a great balance between sweet and savory. The green onions add freshness and make for a pretty presentation. I think this would be good with a bit of cilantro sprinkled over the top. You could also use ground turkey or chicken to bump up the nutritional value. I highly recommend this recipe!

My family loved this dish! Such an easy weeknight meal! I used 2 lbs of ground beef and tripled the sauce. Also threw in some leftover steamed broccoli that I had in the fridge. I can see using snow peas in this dish too. Served it over jasmine rice. Will definitely make again!

I made this when it was first printed in 2015, but my review is not here!!! I've made this delicious recipe often since then. I do add extra veggies...julienned tri-color peppers, carrots, bean sprouts..., but I keep the seasonings the same. Definitely a keeper!
