    The rice didn't cook in 40 minutes. Next time I will cook the rice first then put it all together. Very tasty! Also, I added soy sauce before serving. - 2/7/08

    We used pre-cooked shrimp, and stir fried the veges on stovetop, and added shrimp last. Cooked up in 15 minutes, and was wonderful! - 2/6/08
