I loved this dish & it's really easy to make! I made it with green beans & broccoli. I added tofu and served over brown rice. I will be making this again very soon.

Great recipe! I didn't have any mirin, so I just used a little water and I used a bit more garlic than the recipe stated. I was also out of fresh onion, so I used 1 Tbsp. minced dried onion and 3 Tbsp. water instead. It was absolutly delicious served over fried rice. Thanks for sharing!
