I loved this! There isn't much sauce, but with the ginger and garlic, the taste is perfect. I elected to eat it without rice or noodles, as I am really watching my carbs right now, and this was a wonderful dinner for me tonight. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe.

This is a quick dinner, especially if you use frozen stir-fry vegetable mix, which is what I did - I find this to be a great shortcut. I keep peeled ginger root chunks in the freezer, so it's always ready for use. I also managed to pour sesame oil over the kitchen floor, so I'll be thinking of this dish a lot over the next week or so!
