    I made this today and wow, it was incredible. Maybe you should add that during the first 10-20 minutes frequent stirring is required because the onions and mushrooms don't generate enough fluids so they could be left alone. I didn't have any chili seasoning, so I used chipotle seasoning instead. - 9/16/07

    I was pleasantly surprised! I added .5 tsp. crushed red pepper. I oven roasted the veggies as suggested; there was very little liquid when I combined all the ingredients, so I added 1 can of beef broth. Very nice change of pace dinner! We'll add ground bison next time for more protein. - 1/3/10

    This is one of my favorite dishes to make! I use Diced Canned tomatoes with Italian Seasonings (basil, oregano, &garlic) for those who don't care for the heat of Szechuan sauce. In the summer I dont saute this I just throw it all in the microwave & cook until tender. - 6/9/09

    While it tastes 4-star good, I gave it 5-stars because it is so low-cal AND filling. I sprinkled smoked paprika and chipotle chile powder in my bowl before eating. Gave it a hearty "comfort food" flavor. - 1/4/10

    Made this last night for dinner. It makes a huge pot of stew, very low in calories and very filling. It was really tasty and I will definitely make it again. My only change was adding a hatch pepper with the onions instead of the spices at the end. I'm looking forward to the leftovers today. - 1/12/09
