This dish was delicious. I did double the fresh ginger, wine, soy sauce, and added a little extra garlic. (I did NOT double the cornstarch). This way, if you add a few more vegetables, there is plenty of flavorful sauce to coat every morsel. This sauce could be used on endless stir-frys. I too have an abundance of sugar snap peas from my garden. Thank you for sharing.
This Stir Fry was "Super Good" and perfect to make using my garden snap peas and red pepper. I know I will make it again and again. I followed the recipe. As per your suggestion, I did increase the grated ginger. The only change I made was to sprinkle some Sesame Oil on the finished Stir Fry. - I did not serve this over rice. DH is a Diabetic. Rice doesn't work for us. - The amount of Stir Fry was perfect for us. (2 people) I'm not sure it would be OK for 4 as listed over 3 cups of rice. They might want more veggies and sauce. However if you want a great tasting Stir Fry, this is it. Thank you Ratherbe Swimmin.
