We loved this...the flavors were very Asian...not sure when I was to add the red pepper flakes so just added them in with the ginger...I omitted the peanuts and used butter lettuce for our cups...I made this for our lunch so 4 servings turned into 2...the prep and cooking time was a bit time was about 30 minutes for me...this is a keeper...thanks for posting the recipe...=)
