This recipe had such promise and turned out so ... terrible. What a disappointment! I followed it to the letter, but all the while I kept saying to myself, "Isn't 7 tablespoons of soy going to be wayyyy too salty?," and "shouldn't I stir-fry the veggies by themselves, otherwise they'll never cook right"? I should have listened to myself. It was too salty, and way too dry. When I poured the sauce into the wok, I still had to add almost a cup of water over the cooking period in order for the broccoli to cook. DH said he didn't even know it had peanut butter in it, couldn't taste it at all. Sorry, this one is NOT going to be a repeat for us.
My family loved this dish, the peanut flavor was great! I substituted carrots and snap peas for the broccoli since our family isn't a big fan of broccoli. Also, I only made 1/2 a recipe because a full recipe would just make way too much food for two adults and two small children, especially when combined with a side of rice.
This IS truly amazing! I didn't add the green or red peppers as I can't eat them; I also didn't have any peanuts so didn't add them; and I had to use regular white vinegar as that's all I had, but I used 3 tsp vinegar and 2 tsp water because I figured white wine or rice vinegar aren't as strong as regular vinegar. I also added a few drops of chili oil to the olive oil. The garlic and ginger give this such a great flavor. Prep time isn't really all that long once you get everything chopped, etc. It goes together very quickly. Very good meal that is restaurant quality. I'll be having this quite often. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
