I tried this last night and liked it so much I'm making it again tonight! I did however do some things differently. I used a combination of fresh and thawed frozen vegetables and added some onion. I sauteed 1/4 of an onion in the skillet first with 1 teaspoon of garlic power. Then I tossed in the veggies. For the sauce I used only a small amount (approximately an 1/8 of a teaspoon) of garlic and I added some black pepper. When I make this again tonight I'm going to add a small amount of spicy mustard to the sauce. Though the sauce is good on it's own I personally think it could use a kick. I also think adding water and cornstarch or flour to the sauce and letting it cook until thickened (rather than adding it before serving) would also add a little something too. This is perfect pared with jasmine rice, tofu, and an egg roll!Read More

Wow this was a big hit tonight!! I did change it a bit, sauteed chicken in olive oil with garlic and one onion, then added the frozen veggies and sauteed them till tender and stirred in the sauce (used crunchy peanut butter for added crunch). Put it all over white rice and served! Just yummy! Will use brown rice next time! This is a must try recipe, with almost everything you need in your pantry! A+++
Super easy way to spice up frozen stir fry veggies. Whole family enjoyed.
YUM! I doubled this recipe since I was also using chicken and rice, and it was sooooo good! I didn't have brown sugar, so I used regular white sugar and it still tasted amazing. I got so many compliments on my food. At first when I mixed the sauce together It looked disgusting (lol) and I was hesitant to mix it in with the food, but I'm glad I went ahead and did it, because it was fantastic. The dish looked like regular chinese food with the sauce. 'Twas amazing. Give it a try.
This was delicious! I doubled the sauce and added approximately a cup and a half of day old brown rice. I also added a can of drained water chestnuts and crushed red pepper. I think this is going to become a weekly staple! I absolutely loved that I could used frozen veggies and typical household ingredients to make this ethnic-style dish.
This will be a new go-to recipe in our house! I gotta admit- I did change up the ratio of the sauce. More peanut butter and more brown sugar, but only because I favor very sweet asian dishes and sauces. I also added stir fry beef as a protein. The actual ratios in the recipe would have been fine, too. One tip- when you add the frozen veggies there is some moisture that collects at the bottom of the pan. You can either drain that before adding the sauce for a more thickly coated stir fry, or you can leave it and have a more liquidy sauce that soaks nicely into some white rice! This is probably the easiest meal I've ever made. Really, it's easier than hamburger helper or even DRIVING to a restaurant! And for such a simple, affordable recipe that requires several ingredients that I almost always have on hand, its flavors were interesting and quite complex. I will be making this again, 100 times over. Delicious!!!
I was looking for a simple side dish to go along with the Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi that I made (Also on this site and totally awesome). I am usually a bit of an All recipes snob. If it doesn't have at least 100 reviews I pass it up. And no picture?! I won't even glance at it. I'm so glad I did because this is now a staple in our dinner line up. It's really easy and full of flavor. I think next time I may add beef like another reviewer did and make this a main dish!
Great! I cooked ground beef first, then added it to the vegetables before stirring in the sauce. It tasted amazing and was super easy. What a great recipe that uses ingredients I almost always have on hand! I will definitely make this again.
This recipe came out so good the first time, I had to try it again the next week. I love how easy it was to put together, and that I already had all of the ingredients in the kitchen. Instead of adding it to the vegetables, I mixed it into the chicken. The flavor is phenomenal regardless of whether you add it while the chicken is cooking or off the heat.
Very good recipe, quick and easy. Although, I thought the garlic powder was way too much and I love garlic. I will half the g powder next time. Will try adding water chestnuts next time.
So easy and good! I doubled the sauce and added chicken leftover from a rotisserie.
Great recipe! I had all the ingredients on hand and it was so simple to do. Next time I would increase the amount of veggies because there was plenty of flavor and throw in some cooked chicken or shrimp.
This recipe was really tasty! I made no modifications and my 3-year-old gobbled it up. The leftovers even reheated well. I served it over white rice.
I made this recipe for my very picky 81 year old mother who never tries anything new. She actually had seconds! I made the recipe pretty much as directed but added a little more garlic and peanut butter. I like it a little stronger. Next time I might try the sauteed onions that someone suggested and/or chicken and rice. Excellent dish.
I cannot stand frozen veggie stir fry. My husband made it, I rolled my eyes, sat down to dinner without much enthusiasm, and was quite surprised. I love this sauce so much that we have stir fry almost weekly and since I don't have access to frozen veggies anymore (we live in Costa Rica now) I even go through all the effort to chop fresh veggies for it. We also serve the stir fried veggies with the sauce over rice. My husband likes his with chicken so we make that for him to add on the side. Makes a really easy meal for families that are part vegetarian and part carnivore! I agree that you need to double the sauce for a family of four.
Followed a few tips & added what we had, but the basic recipe is KILLER! Doubled the sauce recipe, since I was adding sliced, leftover 'Roasted Pork Loin' (from AR) & some of its jus. Cooked it in a 'stir-fry pan', after sauteing minced garlic & the leftover pork in EVOO. Then followed the recipe. Served it over brown rice & my wife said, "We never need to order Asian delivery food again!" Can't wait to try it with chicken & shrimp!!!
Tried this tonight for something different and I loved it! Even my family loved it. I will admit, next time I'll cut back on the garlic a little bit. I don't know if it's the brand I use but it was very garlicy. Overall, a good recipe and I will be making it again.
Loved this marinade! So simple, and tastes so good.
GREAT recipe!!! Made the recipe as is, no changes.
after making this, I let the wife taste it...bad idea. she begin adding more peanut butter. I'm not a fan. so I then had to doctor it. then she comes back from bathroom and... the battle was on.I did add more garlic powder. seriously, it does need minor tweaks for taste, but very good stuff.
This is an amazing recipe for anyone who enjoys Thai food. It is well deserving of the 5 stars. To satisfy my personal taste i added some cayenne pepper for some heat and used fresh vegetables. I would have uploaded a picture but it didn't stay on the plate that long. Amazing!
Easy! I changed it up a bit: started with chopped onions and then added minced garlic. In my sauce, I boosted up the spice with some sriracha sauce (to taste). I also added some chicken I baked with cayenne pepper, paprika, red pepper, and salt/pepper. Yum! I would venture to add less peanut butter next time. I read it as tablespoons! No wonder. Still good though!
Very fast, easy and family friendly. Will make this in a pinch.
This was good. It was a bit sweet for my taste but easily fixable with a bit less brown sugar. Very good overall!
Awesome recipe! Love the flavor AND the simplicity. I fried up some tofu, doubled the sauce and served over brown rice noodles. Good stuff! Going into my regular rotation.
I'm on a kick for peanut butter sauces and man does this nail! So delicious, creamy and was just what I was looking for! ????However, I didn't add the brown sugar as for me and what I wanted didn't feel the need to add it so I left it out
My kids don't usually like stir fry but they loved this recipe. I love that it is super easy and fast to prepare.
This was pretty good and so easy. I added more soy sauce after tasting it - next time I'll just double the sauce, since I thought it needed more for the rice. Also added a healthy amount of red chili flakes for kick!
This turned out great. I was a bit apprehensive of the peanut butter, but it made for a nice sauce and the consistency seemed just right. My 2 year old even liked it. In lieu of all frozen vegetables, I used an assortment of fresh and frozen vegetables: assorted bell peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, frozen peas. I also added some sesame tempeh. All in all, this was a really easy recipe and it took very little time. I also added crushed peanuts. As for the rice, I've fallen in love with organic, microwavable rice (ready in 90 seconds), which cuts total time (and effort) significantly. Cheers!!
This is a very forgiving recipe... I did it all wrong... I put the oil and sauce ingredients in first and then threw the frozen veggies in on top. It still tastes great. I added a few shakes of powdered ginger in in too.
I was excited to try this, since it is made with regular frozen mixed vegetable. It was very simple, and I thought it was a nice change. But my husband and daughter were not impressed. I wonder if anyone has an easy suggestion to liven it up a bit?
Very forgiving recipe, would cut down on the soy sauce next time to reduce the sodium
Awesome! Kids loved it. Quick and easy. Versatile.
Also doubled recipe, added a can of pineapple, chicken, onion, zucchini, cayenne pepper, dijon mustard. Great because of basic on-hand ingredients, ease of prep, and pretty good taste. For me did not come out too sweet or garlicky. My son and I both added some soy sauce at the table.... Would like to try with the cornstarch suggestion. Still needs some zing.
Instead of olive oil, I used sesame seed oil. i sauteed fresh garlic, added fresh broccoli and carrots, and steamed them until tender. I then pushed the veggies to the sides of the pan to make room in the center to quickly scramble a few eggs and add to the mixture. i then added the sauce and leftover turkey breast from thanksgiving and stirred until warm. delicious!
Tasty and Low fat
Great stir fry sauce!! Much better than a packet.
I just so happened to have all of these ingredients on hand, so I whipped this recipe together and was surprised at how delicious and simple it was! Won't take long at all and it tastes amazing. I didn't change a thing.
This recipe was very good!! My two small children even liked it (6 yrs old & 2 yrs old). The only thing I did differently was that I doubled the ingredients for the sauce. I didn't think it had enough flavor without doubling it and it was a little dry. VERY TASTY THOUGH!
OMG, this was so good!! I don't like vegetables and I will definitely be making this as often as I can get away with. I followed the recipe exactly as it's written. I may add onions next time but it's great without it.
Tripled this and used for a chicken, veggie, rice noodle stir-fry and my family loved it! Thank you!
This was great! I can't wait to use it again. I didn't have any soy sauce but was determined to make this. I used the sub of 4 tsp Worcestershire sauce mixed with 1 tsp water (thanks to allrecipes for the suggestion). I also, I didn't want to use garlic powder, I used 1 heaping tsp of minced garlic. Great!
Excellent sauce. Liked it very muh.
I just make the sauce from the recipe, but the whole family loves it! I double everything, substitute 2 fresh cloves of garlic for the garlic powder and add a healthy shake of cayenne for a bit of a kick. Delicious!
My husband loved it. I made a bit more of the sauce mixture.
Awesomely awesome! I cut up a chicken breast in small cubes and cooked it first. Removed it from the pan and added the frozen vegetables. Cook with garlic salt and pepper then add the chicken and sauce. I also added some ginger and srirachi to the sauce and some of the rice water to thin the sauce a little then added it to the pan. Unexpectedly good!!!
I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect! My family loved it and it was so easy to make....and delicious!!
Quick. Simple and delicious. That's all there is to it! I would make a bit more sauce next time because I like my stir fry coated thickly, but this was just the right amount to taste the flavor without seeing a lot of sauce on the stir fry. I recommend low sodium soy sauce and perhaps a bit less garlic powder, but otherwise this recipe is perfect!
This is my go-to stir fry sauce. Gives lots of flavour ( I usually use fresh veggies), and it's easy enough for my 11 year old to make while I chop and fry veggies. Love it!
This is really tasty. After my first time following the recipe, I’ve made a couple changes that suit our preferences - but it’s easy and delicious w/o any changes. I now make it substituting sesame oil and minced garlic, and adding about 2 tbs of finely chopped ginger. So simple on a week night, but so yummy too. I serve over rice or ramen noodles and sometimes add chopped or shredded chicken.
Family really enjoyed this dish. I will be making it again.
Very easy and stuck to instructions and listed ingredients. came out great. wonderful base. whole family including 2 yr old liked this recipe.
Super simple and good. Used half garlic powder half minced garlic. Mixed with some plain white rice and it was great!
Súper easy and turned out great! I added fresh mushrooms, zucchini, bok choy and suteed onions as recommended by others. I will definitely be making this again.
Very tasty and easy as is or just simple enough to change as needed by adding chicken or beef to the mix as well. You can have it on rice, noodles, or even alone! This is going to become a staple in our household.
Sauce tastes great. Next time I might increase it if I want a saucy side to serve with rice.
I used sesame oil instead of olive. Like some of the others, I sautéed onions and garlic before adding the vegetables. Since this was to be a complete meal, I sautéed sliced chicken breast with the onion and garlic. Added bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, and mushrooms to the vegetables. Great supper!
My husband is super picky about homemade stir fry, and this won the day! I added chicken and served over rice; it was amazing! I would double the recipe if serving more than two people though, but this is going to be a regular on our table!
I made this exactly as it is written and it was very very good. A nice side dish that is very quick and easy to put on the table. I will be making it again.
Great recipe!!! I usually add more veggies and some shrimp to it also. I double the sauce and add some ginger for extra flavor. Quick meal with great taste!!
The only thing I changed was to cut the garlic powder in half. This was absolutely marvelous
Good flavor but waaaayy too much garlic. I cant stop tasting it and it's been hours.
Absurdly easy. I had all the ingredients on hand. I just added an egg. I’d make it again.
Very good, just a little too much garlic for me (woke up in the middle of the night still tasting it). So next time I will only use 1 tsp of garlic powder. Otherwise, this was wonderful with an Asian veggie mix and some tofu fried in coconut oil. Yum!!
This was yummy but even doubling the sauce it still seemed like it needed more. Next time I’ll make a bigger batch of sauce.
The peanut butter and brown sugar combination gave it some great flavor!
I really like this, a bit too much garlic powder, but other than that, delicious! We served it over jasmine rice, easy and yum!
Followed sauce recipe. It was very good but we did notice a slight bitterness/bite to it. I am not sure what would cause that, based on ingredients. Next time I may try a little more sugar. I did use a 14 oz bag of frozen stir-fry vegetables and served over brown rice. Unless you are serving this to people with very small appetites, it would never feed 6! My wife and I finished this by ourselves. Very easy & quick to prepare.
Did this exactly as recipe said and wow!! Very yummy. Add stir fried chicken and toss w cooked Thai style noodles for a full meal!! Yum!!
So easy maybe easiest dinner ever, I double the sauce and sometime add half a can of coconut milk yuummmm..need to triple next time love the leftovers
Will definitely make again. I doubled the recipe since I added a pound of fajita chicken and served over rice.
Wow, this recipes was sooo good. I did change a few things. I doubled the sauce. I used the garlic powder that was called for but, I think it was a little much (and I love garlic). I do not usually cook with frozen veggies so I cut up 2 small heads of broccoli, 1 yellow squash, 1 zucchini and 1/2 of a yellow onion. Just before it was done, I added half a can of peas 1/2 can of carrots (just what I happened to have on hand). This came out so delicious, even the kids loved it!
Just happened to get Thai-style frozen veggies on sale this week & was excited to test this recipe.....better than I Could have hoped for....this recipe is a definite keeper!
Absolutely perfect !!!! I did sliced top sirloin sautéed with minced garlic in olive oil until almost cooked then added veggies and followed recipe. Wife and I loved it and 4 outta 5 of the kids ??
Doubled sauce and added about a lb of chicken thigh.
I love this sauce on freshly chopped & stir fried veggies!
Great flavor and sauce. I think it's closer to 4 servings than 6. i added chicken to bulk it up and make it more filling. I will definitely make if more and often.
This was amazing and super easy! I doubled the recipe since we served it over brown rice and used chunky peanut butter for texture. We also mixed fresh and frozen veggies. This dish was a hit with everyone and that's a tough thing to do!
Good stuff! I doubled the sauce & veggies, added minced garlic, shrimp & eggs. I added siracha to the sauce and extra soy sauce. delish!
Loved it! Senior tweaks, Used two large salads and 2 side fresh veggies which were not being eaten due to crunchy skins and Seniors being 76, and 82 yr old with teeth problems. Cooked it for about 10 minutes to soften more. Added that delicious Thai type sauce! We loved it! Dont need take out now as we can make this out of leftover veggies on hand! That SAUCE! YUM! Thanks for this easy, easy, fast RECIPE!
Made exactly as listed, with mixed frozen vegetables and diced mushrooms. So much better than it sounded. Will definitely do again. Used sesame oil and olive oil for cooking.
I also made this 2 nights in a row. So easy. Appreciate recipes that don’t require buying ingredients I may never use again. The only substitutions were leaving out the peanut butter yesterday (added Spam to it-his choice) and using peanut oil rather than olive oil both times. Chicken was great in this, over white rice; increased the sauce by 50%. Yum! Keeper.
Really good basic recipe using things you already have in the pantry. I had real garlic so I used that in the sauce instead of powder. I am a big fan of Asian food and had some oyster sauce and added about 2T since I doubled the recipe. I liked a little spice so I heated 2 chiles de arbol in the oil before adding the veggies, water chestnuts and some onion. I like the sauce a little thicker so a little cornstarch helped it cling nicely. Served with rice and it was a hit! Thanks for the recipe!
Holy smokes was this good. Nowadays need dishes that stretch the ol budget. I added some steak strips and cut the pieces really small. Served it over rice. Stay healthy everyone. Take care of each other and yourselves.
Super simple to make. I took all the leftover fresh vegetables in my fridge ,doubled the sauce, cuz I had a lot of veggies and it came out great!
I doubled the recipe and added cornstarch, water, spicy mustard to the sauce, sautéed chicken in garlic and served over multi grain rice- so far no complaints even from my picky 6 year old
I tripled the recipe using 2 lbs of frozen vegetables, 1 lb of chicken, added a little powdered ginger, and reduced the garlic powder as some other reviewers suggested. It was super easy, very quick, and tasty. I'll definitely make this again.
So easy! I eyeballed everything and used minced garlic instead of garlic powder in the sauce. And when I was cooking my vegetables I put black pepper, crushed red pepper, and garlic powder on them and then added the sauce.
Fantastic recipe! It was easy to prepare and delicious. My husband loved it. I combined fresh and frozen veggies.
Never would have thought to add peanut butter. I followed the recipe with great results.
I really enjoyed the peanut sauce. I would recommend!
Great recipe! Made exactly what was shown for 3 people, but it wasn't quite enough and we were all still a bit hungry after. Next time we'll double the recipe for sure! Worked just fine as a main dish, could probably toss in chicken as well if you miss the meat but it doesn't need it. Goes great with rice and frozen pot stickers.
I liked the easy way with which this sauce came together. If you are looking for a quick and easy recipe, this is it. Will definitely try this again. It would be even better with fresh vegetables as the frozen ones are not crisp but rather soft.
Used Asian blend of frozen veg. Garlic to taste. A few extra fresh veg. Excellent recipe, lots of variations possible.
I am 12 years old! I decided one night to make my family dinner and saw this it looked very tasty and delicious so I gave it a go. It turned out to be AMAZING! Thank you so much for this recipe.
Pretty good starter recipe. I think it is important to mention that as you are using frozen veggies, you really must drain the extra water before adding the sauce. Speaking of sauce, I doubled recipe ( was needed) and used crunchy peanut butter to give texture. Turned out great. Will do my own personal tweaking but this was a great gateway recipe!! Thank you!
tastes very processed but still not awful
Dumped a huge bag in my biggest non stick pan. Cooked about 10 minutes, doubled the sauce. Perfect.
Outstanding. Made it exactly as the recipe specified. Looking forward to trying with many other vegetable combinations and maybe some added meats.
