This was very good! I let mine cook a little longer than I had intended, so it was not crisp-tender, so next time I will follow the recipe more closely. I used a mix of yellow squash and zucchini, and I left out the onion. This was very good, and I will make it again! Thank you!

Very good (and easy) side dish. I made this as written and I think it was just a bit too much brown sugar for only 1lb of zucchini and 1 onion. Next time I would cut the amount of brown sugar in half, just so the sweetness is more subtle. Thanx for sharing!

This was an outstanding recipe! I was totally bored with my regular stir-fried zucchini, so I went looking for something that would be different. This was exactly what I was looking for! I used 1 tsp canola oil, 1 tsp sesame oil, and 2T brown sugar. The sugar, combined with the soy sauce, made a very tasty addition to the veggies. I'll definitely be making this recipe again. Thanks so much for posting, Dancer^!
