The whole family loved it. It was easy to make and very filling. I did use Asian Chili Oil in place of Chile bean sauce because it was what I had. I also saved a step and calories by using KAME Thai Rice Stir-Fry Noodles that are fresh cooked in vacuum sealed packages. I found them on the grocery shelf. I think this recipe is worth trying.
