The flavor was great even though I used chicken instead of pork. I also used orange bell peppers and water chestnuts as well as ramen noodles instead of the rice. In addition I added Vadalia onions instead of the green as everything I used, I already had on hand. Its a very versatile recipe. I also doubled the liquid and seasoning.
Good alternative to take out Chinese! Thanks for sharing!
