Good and easy- almost like takeout b/c of the snowpea crunch, etc. If I make it again, i will DEFINITELY cut down on the vinegar. That's pretty much the predominant flavor, and we'd have liked the other flavors to come through some more. Still, a good dish. Thanks!

Tasty and healthy. Nice crunchy veggies and a delicious semi-salty sauce. Lovely way to use snow peas as they truly shine in this dish.

This IS quick and very easy...I had dinner ready in 30 minutes! I halved the recipe and used rice wine vinegar and a small red onion that needed to be used up. My black bean sauce has garlic in it so I cut down the amount of garlic just a bit to appease my husband, who enjoyed this VERY much and wants it again, soon. I did take pictures but am not posting, they are blurry...probably because of the martini I had while cooking this. Thanks Mean...this is one that will be done again over by here.
