I was looking for a quick meal for my husband and me and this one fit the bill perfectly. I used broccoli instead of snow peas. I would make a couple of changes. First do not use organic peanut butter. It doesn't blend as well. Also I I would combine ingredients for the sauce and cook it down for a few minutes. Then add the sautéd vegetables and cooked meat so the vegetables are crisper and the sauce is a bit thicker. Otherwise it was delicious and my husband loved it.
