Sweet and Sour Stir-Fry Shrimp With Broccoli and Red Bell Pepper

"You can use 1/2 cup water in place of 1/4 cup each broth and water. This recipe will feed 3-4 people but can easily be doubled. To save some time prepare all the veggies in advance. Adjust all ingredients to taste. Serve with cooked rice."

    Made this for dinner last night and it turned out great! Made as directed except I left out the onion (personal taste). The sauce was amazing and there was enough for the rice I served it with. If you are going to make this with rice, start your rice first because this dish cooks fast. I made this mistake and ended up with overcooked shrimp. I used canned chicken broth and used the rest of the can to cook the rice in so that it did not go to waste. This will definitely be a go to recipe in my house! Thanks kittencalskitchen for a great recipe.

    Loved it! Didn't use the chicken broth, just water, but the sauce tasted great!

    Just cooked this recipe tonight and it was sooo GOOD!!! I used snowpeas instead of bell peppers and I added a touch more garlic than the recipe called for just because I really love garlic. I also had to add a touch more cornstarch to get the consistency that I wanted.I served it over brown rice. I'm just learning to cook and I can tell you that this recipe will be used a lot.
