I made this for PAC Fall 2006. There's nothing wrong with the recipe!! I think I just prefer five-spice as a background flavor. I used green beans instead of the broccoli and I added tofu. The sauce was really good on the tofu, but I couldn't taste the orange. I think if I make this again I'll add orange zest and reduce the amount of five-spice powder. I really like the concept!!

This was very good!! I will not use the sugar the next time, as it was plenty sweet.

This was a very yummy sauce, and I can see it working with a number of stir fries. My veggies were pretty different as I used items from my CSA box, but it worked brilliantly. It even made eggplant yummy, which is a feat for me LOL. Thanks for posting! Made for Veg Swap 36 for our VIP Chef!

What a nice veggie stir fry with just the right amount of spiciness and sauce. DH and I enjoyed it served over white rice. I was unsure what "liquid sweetener" meant, so I used a mild honey. The veggie combo I used was broccoli, red bell pepper, mushrooms, garlic and carrots. Delicious and healthy! Thanks for sharing! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #42)

Delish and easy to make! Hubby and I both loved it. I didn't add sweetener, as I used Trop50 and that's already sweetened. :) I used a combo of white button mushrooms and portobellos. Forgot the garlic (whoops). Used a walla walla onion, bok choy, and edamame - skipped the broccoli, as I needed to use the latter two. Also used pad Thai rice noodles. Scrumptious!

Very tasty. I took Beth's suggestion and used my own favorite veggies: carrots, snap peas, red pepper, onion and added some tofu for a vegan supper. I increased the sauce a bit, and loved the combination of orange juice and five spice powder. Instead of 2 teaspoons liquid sweetner I used 1 teaspoon splenda. This was a quick and easy but tasty supper dish. Yum!

A WINNER! All the veggies were gobbled up with glee, the sauce was especially good per DH. I used one packet of Splenda in place of the 2 teaspoons liquid sweetener. Prep work was a cinch, and cooking was easy. I served over white rice on DH's request. Thanks for posting, Elmotoo! Made for December 2008 Veg*n Swap.

We really enjoyed this. I doubled (even a bit more actually) the sauce, and added 400grams of green prawns which I'd coated with the 5-spice and chilli flakes. Took Fairy Nuff's advice and used Chinese Rice noodles which I let soak up the extra sauce. Great flavour, healthy meal.

Made this for Green, Eggs, and Ham Asian tag game. I reduced the 5-spice to 1/2 tsp, left out the red pepper and used garlic powder. Also added cooked shrimp for some protein. This was quite good, even though I'm not a big fan of 5-spice. I think the combos were about right for the sauce (the way I made it). I cooked the veggies a little longer bcz we like them a little more tender. Thanks elmotoo!
