      Nice and flavorful dinner. I did cut back on the celery to 1 stalk, and added with that 2 sliced green peppers, and 1 red bell pepper. This had a real nice garlic punch to it, and made for a well rounded dinner. I only wish I added more celery and vegetables to this. Great dinner for the 4 of us , served with Company Cauliflower#400873, and Tweaked Traditional Cardamom Bread#449987. Thanks for a great main dish for tonights dinner. Made for your win in the Football Pool.

      Super good and quick. Even though we love garlic, I was worried about the amount called for in this recipe. I shouldn't have been because it tasted great. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      I'm not yet all that comfortable when it comes to wok cooking, so I very carefully followed the recipe & was so very pleased with the results! In a word, DELICIOUS, most definitely! Loved everything about, especially the use of so much garlic, something we both enjoy very much! Served it with a side of peas mixed in with white rice & it was wonderful! Certainly a keeper! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
