      Excellent recipe for celery! I ate the whole pan full myself. Instead of the chili (didn't have it) I used crushed red pepper flakes. I always have leftover celery sitting in the frig... thanks for a flavorful, spicy, delicious way to use it up!

      This was SO GOOD .. I had a ton of leftover celery (only needed 1 stalk!) and had no idea what to do with it because I don't particularly enjoy it. I added some onion and garlic, and used sesame oil and only 3 tsp of brown sugar. I didn't have a chili so I use a packet of red chili pepper from Pizza Hut! I cooked it a few minutes longer and wished I cooked it a bit more even .. still too crunchy for me. But this was so good that I plan on actually buying celery! THANKS for sharing!! LOVED it.

      This recipe could easily make the perfect base for any number of Asian-style stir fries. I would have loved to throw a few shrimp or strips of beef in. As it was, I just had the celery to use up and managed to devour this all on my own! I didn't have a fresh chili pepper so I used dried chili flakes. I found the sauce a touch sweet and might leave out 1 tsp of sugar next time.
