This is good, as far as it goes, but I'm left with the feeling that it needs just a little something. Maybe a few dried red chili peppers would bring it to life. I used Chinese rice wine instead of sherry, a neutral vegetable oil instead of olive oil, dried shiitake mushrooms, reconstituted, instead of fresh ones. I also used chicken stock instead of water for the sauce. I didn't change anything else, although I did cut the green onion into thin diagonal slices instead of 1-inch pieces. I'm sure I will experiment with this recipe in the future. Thank you for sharing it with us.

This made a very nice dinner and was served over brown rice. The directions are well written; however, I could not find where it said to add the mushrooms and added them along with the green onion and garlic. Being the true garlic lover that I am, I did use additional garlic.

This was good overall. I felt like the taste was as good as takeout that you can get from a local restaurant around here. However, I found that this recipe lacked the true dazzling flavor that I wanted. I added more soy sauce, sesame oil, and fish sauce to get the sauce some real flavor. This is a basic stir fry recipe and all the steps were daunting at first but they are really easy once you get the hang of what you are doing. I liked the fact that the recipe could be added onto. If I make it again I would like to add some dried peppers. Thanks for the easy and simple stir fry recipe to add to my collection.

A very good recipe and it is very easy to follow. I tried it for Christmas dinner and my family was impressed. I however added mushrooms stir fried in butter.

A good recipe. It is what it says it is. If you like that, you'll find it very solid. I enjoyed the care the author took in making the step-by-step process clear. Do follow their process. --One exception, I substituted fresh shitakes for dried, and used the water I used for re-hydrating the mushrooms where the recipe called for water.
