This one is a definite repeat for my family. I haven't found many stir fry sauces we all enjoy, but this might be the one. I added bell peppers and green onion right before the snap peas and just sprinkled slivered almonds on top after serving.

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this recipe. Super easy to make and really tasty. I like lots of veggies so I added strips of red bell pepper, broccoli and water chestnuts along with the sugar snap peas. Definitely made a difference.

Very good and easy to make. I think the recipe could use more sauce and about half the almonds. 1 cup of almonds was just too much.

This recipe was okay. The sauce was tasty and my 5 year old son ate it.
