This made a good dinner. It was a little salty, so I'd decrease just a bit of the soy sauce next time. I made fried rice and egg drop soup to go with this. Also used onion, red and green bell peppers instead of broccoli and carrots as they're what I had on hand.

Excellent! I had to omit the cayenne since my husband can't eat spicy. But put some on mine after trying it without! Great both ways! I also used half the broccoli, 4 cups seemed a bit much. Very versatile, I can see using chicken or other vegetables. This recipe goes in the keeper box!

Pretty good. I want a little thicker sauce and more pineapple flavor than I got here. I added cauliflower, some peppers and fresh mushrooms. I served it with chow mein noodles. Made more than enough as always .

This had really great flavor. I will need to cut back on cayenne a little next time. My prego belly can't handle spicy much latley. But very good and would be easy to play around with the ingredients.Thanks for sharing!

Really liked this, partially due to the texture of the particular meat I used, but the taste of the dish was really intense, and the cayenne pepper added a perfect amount of heat to it. I personally used a bit less brown sugar than it called for, and I also added minced garlic to the sauce mixture because the wife and I are big Garlic fans. All in all, a great stir-fry; will make again!
