Haven't tried this yet, but I love stir frying. I would prefer using fresh veggies, though.

Preparation was a snap! My husband isn’t always a fan of stir frys, but we both enjoyed this one because it has a little kick. Definitely double the sauce!

This was quick and easy and delicious too! I enjoy making dinner every night but sometimes it is nice to NOT be in the kitchen for hours and still enjoy a good meal.

This sauce is so delicious and was not too sweet. I followed suggestions from others reviews and doubled the sauce. I used red pepper flakes instead of chili powder and 2 cloves of fresh garlic instead of the powder. I also used fresh vegetables: onion , sliced carrots, sliced mushrooms and broccoli florets which took extra time but is so worth it. I used Costco deli chicken breast meat as that was what I had on hand. I do not like Minute Rice, so I used regular long grain rice instead. I topped this with some nuts and it was wonderful!!!I will definitely be making this recipe again, using my adjustments. Next time I plan to add some water chestnuts and try it with the beef. The flavor of this sauce is so good, and the left-overs were great too. Thank you for sharing this recipe that can be adapted in so many ways. Just remember to double the sauce!

Very good. I also used fresh ginger and garlic, and red pepper flakes. But don't think it's necessary to scold someone for using quick ingredients in a quick recipe! And I don't like instant rice, so I used regular brown rice, which does add to the prep time, but that's okay!Next time I might try some enoki mushrooms.

We loved this recipe. I also doubled the sauce and used fresh mushrooms, onions, red and green bell peppers and broccoli. If I had snow peas It would have been a good addition. Thanks for the post I love recipes that you can be creative with.

My family love this recipe. I will be making it quite a bit. The only thing I would do different next time is add another pack of vegetables.

I'm sorry, but it doesn't take that long to grate some fresh ginger, which keeps quite well in the fridge - and mince fresh garlic! Plus, chili powder? The taste was acceptable, but needed red pepper flakes rather than chili powder and the 'texture', with all the powdered seasonings, was powdery/grainy. Also, fresh veggies take only a few minutes to chop.
