    I haven't had much luck with stir-frying in the past, but happily this recipe was an exception! The precise timings listed for cooking each item were a huge help to me - it was great to have a stir-fry with nothing overcooked! I had to substantially reduce the amount of brown bean sauce to avoid killing my BF (he has no tolerance for spice) but even 1 tsp added a wee bit of zing. Really pleasing combination of flavours, I love the shiitake mushrooms and broccoli with the orange. Thanks for the recipe.
