This was fantastic! It was super easy to do and I loved the flavors. I added some mushrooms that needed to be used but otherwise followed the instructions exactly. I would make this for company as a great Asian dinner!
I did like this concept a lot and it was a fabulous inspiration. However, the sauce was a bit bland - it was perfect when I put out different condiments on the table (siracha, hoison, soy sauce) and people could kinda customize.
