Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Very good stir- fry over rice (we use a mixture of brown and white rice). i thought it was a tad spicy and then I noticed that I used more red pepper flakes than was suggested in the recipe. Easy and good dinner. Thanks for sharing!

Great flavour, clear instructions. Very enjoyable dinner thanks Felix. The teaspoon oil, tablesoon soy, teaspoon chili sauce & teaspoon worchestershire sauce didn't give enough volume to make a suace with the corn starch so I added 1/3 cup white wine.That worked.I had a bit of broccoli and cauliflower in the fridge so I added them. Will make again
