    sriracha is also known as "rooster sauce"(because is has a rooster on the bottle) and is a spicy red pepper sauce. You can substitute sweet chili paste, but we use half rooster sauce half sweet chili paste at our house. Also, be sure to add some fresh minced ginger! Also like it with udon noodles. - 1/11/11

    This one was great! I did not have the srirachan sauce so I used red pepper flakes to spice it up.I also added just a sprikle of chopped peanuts to the top to add crunch. I will do this again. Can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch this week! - 1/11/11

    I make these often. When I am in a hurry I use a bag of broccoli slaw and call it good. And I tend to add extra sriracha sauce. - 1/11/12

    Check the sodium content - FAST!! 2TBS soy sauce = 1805 mg sodium. Divided by 4 servings = 451 mg....for the soy sauce alone. - 1/12/11
