An alright recipe but I don't think it had much flavor. I definitely added some extra soy sauce. Read More

I don't know if I read something wrong but 1 tsp of cornstarch does not dissolve in 1 tsp of soy sauce - it makes a paste. And once you have snow peas in your skillet it's near impossible to then mix that paste with the broth in the skillet so you just get small bits of soy sauce paste scattered in your skillet. Or at least that's what happened to me. Read More

This was pretty good. I prepared it as written but next time I'll add some ginger and garlic to the pan before adding the peas/carrots. As per Salser713 I'll also add sesame seeds when serving next time. I had no problem mixing the soy with cornstarch as did jen55. However it would be easy with no change to the taste to combine the soy cornstarch and broth and add it to the pan all at once. There's no need to make it 2 steps. I'll make this again according to my notes above. it's good to have simple recipes like this on hand Read More

Nice easy recipe. I julienned the carrots as I was in a hurry. The only thing I did differently was to sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds over the veggies when they were done. Thanks! Read More

Very very good! We have snow peas coming in from the back yard garden. My husband also pulled a couple of leeks when he picked peas. I sliced that and stir-fried along with the peas and carrots. Not sure how much flavor that added since I have never made this before. But it certainly did not hurt! Read More

This is really good. I added a little salt and pepper and I used a little more sesame oil (love the taste of it) but this was really a great side dish. My husband loved it!!! Read More

This was a very nice quick veggie side with an Asian flair. We had found some beautiful snow peas at the store and could not pass them up. Did not know how I was going to fix them until I stumbled across this one. Instead of carrots I used a can of water chestnuts which complimented the sauce and still gave you some crunch and crispness to the dish. Read More

Simple tasty recipe that is now a family favourite. As other suggested I added some sesame seed prior to serving. I also added a 200 gram pack of udon noodles to soak up the sauce and served with a pork chop. Read More
