    Very Tasty. I don't like Mushrooms so added Bean sprouts , broccoli, cauliflower , and Carrots. Putting this over Brown Rice its Wonderful. Adding a Salad makes for a great supper.
    I will be making this again and again. Thanks for sharing.

    GREAT stir fry recipe. I omitted the celery and added broccoli, sugar snaps, and red, orange, and yellow pepers. A terrific and tasty way to get in some servings of veggies. I'll definitely make this again. - 7/4/07

    OMG my husband and I will be making this again. We used cooking wine and I don't like ginger so we used garlic minced and baby carrots instead of green peppers. This was so good we are cooking it again this week. Thanks - 1/22/10
