  1. Nice recipe. I marinated my meat for 4 hours and the meat soaked up all the sauce so next I will make more. We added more chili sauce after tasting but we like spicy. I look forward to adding different veggies next time also. Thanks! Made for Ausie Swap #35.
  2. Absolutely fabulous. We will have this again. I used a full tablespoon of Sriracha for the chili sauce which made for a nice heat. I suggest if you have timid tastebuds, use less or a milder version. I added broccoli for color and stir fried that for about a minute before adding the other vegetables. The sauce smelled heavenly so I made extra which I added in at the end, cooking with the rest of the ingredients for an extra minute. That gave us enough to coat the rice. This is an excellent recipe. Thank you I'mPat!
  3. Wow! The marinade in this recipe is absolutely perfect. Great flavor, just enough heat. I love the addition of the five spice- it really makes the recipe. This is my new go-to for stir fry. I'll change up the vegetables based on what I've got on hand, but this is the new sauce. Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
