  • “this was a great stir-fry very easy and quick to make great for a quick lunch”

  • “Stellar!I did swap in/out some veggies…red pepper for green, green beans for broccoli, patty pan squash for carrots, purple cauliflower, skipped the cabbage and sprouts.Just threw in what I got from the farmer’s market!I used fresh garlic and ginger, and uncured turkey bacon.Delicious!”

  • “This is so good.I used turkey bacon instead of pork.Not that terrible stuff you find in the market.An organic turkey bacon by welshire farms.For the veggies I used the onion, celery, green pepper and mushrooms.Instead of using the other veggies I just bought a bag of broccoli slaw which has carrots, cabbage and broccoli in it.I deleted the cauliflower and bean sprounts since I don’t love those veggies.I also doubled the sauce. Let me tell you, this was a very yummy dinner.It doesn’t look like it’s all that but it was good.My two year old ate it like crazy.Didn’t go over so well on my 4 year old but he’s just at that stage.A must try.Yummy”

  • “I took liberties with the vegetables, no bean sprouts or cauliflower. I used 2 green onions and 1/2 lb of asparagus. I doubled the sauce as we like things really “saucy” This was super fast and easy and we all loved the flavors. We’ll definitely put this recipe in the keeper file!”

  • “this was quick and easy to prepare.it needed more liquid in the sauce but it tasted good.”
