Very tasty! I was cooking for two so I divided ingredients accordingly. I measured out and prepared everything first - as it's a quick cooking stir fry I wanted everything to hand. I'm not a proficient cook so I probably spent more time preparing than most. I followed the instructions and my husband and I were very impressed with the sweet spicy flavours - as good as take out - very very tasty ... I am printing this recipe out for my favourites file. Pros: quick to prepare & cook, wonderful flavour
