      The first time I made this recipe, it was very bland and boring. But it definitely makes a great base recipe, as other reviewers have suggested. The second time I made it, we added:

      - Double the sauce
      - 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
      - 2 tablespoons of Spicy Oyster Sauce (which is not actually spicy but adds a lot of flavor)
      - bok choy (cut the stems on diagonals and add with the rest of the veggies, cut the leaves across the grain and add at the very last minute of cooking just to wilt them.)
      - asparagus
      - red bell pepper
      - baby corn (from a can)
      - sliced water chestnuts (2 cans)
      - sliced mushrooms (stems and pices from a can)
      - bamboo shoots (strips, from a can)

      This is a LOT of extra veggies, so it makes a large dish. Either pick the veggies that are your favorite, or invite a crowd! :) Because of the amount of extra veggies, you'll have to double or even triple the sauce, but you want to make sure the veggies are FRIED, not boiled, so add the sauce in parts and then add more as it cooks down. You may need to add additional cornstarch at the end to thicken it. I also used peanut oil for frying and then I sprinkled sesame seeds over the top at the end.

      My husband gave the initial recipe 3 stars, the final revision got 5 stars. So thanks for a good base recipe!

      I fixed this tonight and my entire family was impressed. This is really a yummy meal that is quick and easy. The ginger is what really makes the stir fry....I never knew that. Thanks for a great recipe. ~~The Guzmans

      I've not had much luck with stir-fries before, but this one turned out perfect. I used veggies that I had on hand and added water chestnuts for a little extra crunch. Next time I'm going to add a small amount of hot pepper flakes - we like food extra spicy! Thanks for sharing.
