I was pleasantly suprised by how good this recipe was. I thought it may come out too dry but it did not and was very good. Even my picky husband really liked it. The only additions I made was to add fresh mushrooms celery and snow peas (instead of frozen peas). This recipe will definitely be a keeper. Read More

I had visions of a Chinese style dish. However it became overcooked and way too salty. I would recommend more stir fry style of cooking ( hot and fast)to keep fresh color of veggies. To cut the saltiness make a cornstarch thickener and then add soy to taste and color preference. Read More

This is wonderful. It tasted even better the following day. Next time I'll add a dash or two of Tabasco to the sauce. Read More

This was pretty good. You do have to watch the amount of salt would be best to use low sodium soy sauce in this recipe. Mine came out just ok any more salt and I wouldn't have eaten it. Apart from this it's a good recipe and can easy adjust to use the veges you prefer. Read More

This was scrumptious! We cut back on veggies and it was still enough to serve 6! WE also mixed the eggs and added with the rest of the liquid ingredients. No need to scramble eggs separately. Did not taste like left-overs tasted like a yummy dish! will certainly make again. Read More

Nothing negative to say about this. I cleaned out the leftover veggies and added snow peas. It was very tasty! I feel like it may be good with pineapple added. Has anyone tried that? Read More

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. It ended up disappearing so it must have been good. A great way to use up the leftover ham and get the family to eat more veggies. I plan on making it again. Read More

This was a very tasty meal. I would have liked to rate it 4.5 stars - but not an option. The only thing I will do differently the next time is to use fresh blanched green beans rather than canned beans. A great recipe to use up leftover ham and I had a bunch of broccoli to use also. This was an attractive dish to serve with all of the vibrant colors. We had it over sticky white rice. Thanks Ruth of sharing your recipe. Read More
