I followed this recipe and it tasted a bit meh. I added some sriracha, soy sauce and more broth then allowed the liquid to reduce and it dazzled my mouth. I also added some home grown basil to make it complete. I used a garnish of rainbow salad instead of the carrot and it was great. This recipe will be a staple in my weekly menus.

Based on a popular Chinese dish, these fun wraps also make appealing appetizers for entertaining. Make it a meal: Serve with chile-garlic sauce and rice vinegar for extra zip; toss diced mango and strawberries with lime juice for a quick dessert.

Love this recipe. I've made it a few times, and I can't stop nibbling while preparing it! Agree on the addition of some soy sauce, and also some vinegar such as rice wine vinegar gives it a nice fresh punch. The 5-spice powder and fresh herbs are a must, I think, but the recipe is very flexible.
These were outstanding!
I doubled the recipe, added 2 tbsp of siracha and 1/2 cup of Cashew pieces.
Sprinkled with Cilantro/Thai Basil/Chive blend. I will definitely make these again.
Made this for a dinner party, and it was great. Great flavor, but I think I will add some red pepper flakes when I'm not making it for a group because it isn't spicy as prepared. The turkey mixture is really good on its own as well!
