Excellent dish!

My whole family loved this dish, even my 3 year old. I added shitaki mushrooms and left out the scallions (my wife forgot them) and it still came out delicious, plus we love mushrooms. I also used 1.5 tbsp of oyster sauce and 2.5 tbsp of Tabasco Garlic sauce to give it more flavor and a little extra kick. I saw some comments that added garlic into theirs. I was hesitant to do that but I love garlic so I may try that next time. Overall, this is a very tasty stir-fry. It's also very light on ingredients but more than filling.

Easy, healthy and quick

Loved this, but my sous chef... Aka my husband, went overboard with the ginger. Next time I will stick to the exact measurements with that.

Quick and healthy

Made this the other night and was less than impressed. There was absolutely no flavor to this recipe as written. I ended up doctoring it with more oyster sauce, some fish sauce, soy sauce and siracha to get it to a level where it actually tasted like something. Definitely won't be making this again.

Great dish

I don't care for oyster sauce so I used 2 tblsp soy sauce instead. I could barely taste it. The sesame oil is very overpowering (yet delicious), so if you don't have that don't makes the dish. I added two cloves crushed garlic and will next time as well. I forgot to buy scallions so I just used like 1/4 cup largely diced onion and it was still great.

I WILL make this dish again!

The flavors were still tantalizing my tastebuds after dinner. I added a minced clove of garlic and increased the chili-garlic sauce to 2 tsp for added flavor.

Healthy never tasted so good!
