We loved this stir-fry. Delicious and full of yummy veggies. I might play with the amounts of the spices next time, but a great dish, thanks! Made this for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs!
Very good. Easy to make, a lovely stir fry. One thing i would do differently is change the ginger to minced rather than ground and increase the amount. Otherwise i loved it
A really nice stirfry. I had to make a minor adjustment, adding a bit more sherry because the sauce thickens up quite quickly, but otherwise the recipe is right on in terms of cooking time, amounts and ingredients. A great combination.
