I tried your original recipe, and whilst it was good I found it rather bland for my taste. The marinade was excellent, and I will use this for other stir-frys. To your recipe I added a small selection of veggies and water chestnuts. I would recommend your recipe. Bangers n'Mash, Mississauga, On. Canada
