Top Review by Steph.

This is a really good basic recipe which you can modify in any number of ways. Instead of using beef, I had leftover teriyaki pork that I needed to use, and it was great. I also used udon noodles instead of rice. Prep time takes a while, all that chopping and slicing, but once you're ready to start cooking, it's goes together fast and easy. Thanks, Gingerbear.
