This was a great stirfry! I had to omit the bell pepper (I'm intolerant of them for some reason.) and the snow peas (didn't have) and replaced with a cup and a half of frozen mixed veg. Very spicy! Yummmm! I will definitely make this again.
OMG this was yummy! I used sambal oeleck in place of the red pepper flakes and boosted the veggies to meet requirements for the challenge. We had fresh-picked snow peas from our garden and they were just lovely in this. We also had broccoli, carrots, onion and mushrooms. I didn't think I'd like the fresh cilantro but it really added a nice freshness at the end. Thanks for the new stir-fry recipe! (And it's healthy too!) Made for ZWT 4 Asia/ Diabetic Forum Challenge.
