  • Very Good

    Would also be good with leeks or onion and needed twice the thickening. Very good combination of flavors and textures. Use very large skillet or wok. We added this to our favorites after first try. - 2/14/10

  • Used sliced onion and minced garlic in place of powders. Skipped the bok choy - couldn't find any at store. Easy to make. - 10/24/11

  • Fresh veggies makes this a very good dish. I simmered green pepper strips, broccoli, carrots, celery, and snow peas. I ate with soy ginger asian noodles. I will look to add a more flavorful marinade to the dish next time. - 1/11/11
