It uses chili powder and cornstarch, which ain't Creole, but no garlic or onion, which are. Tomato juice? Why not whole or diced tomatoes (no need for cornstarch) like Creoles do? There is nothing Creole about it!
This is a different recipe and very enjoyable. I liked the different take on stir fry. I think it would be great with other vegetables too. Made for PAC Spring 2008.
We really enjoyed this recipe. A very different take on stir-fry. I will most definitely make this again. Thanks Chef Simmons for a great recipe.
