Well I made a few changes. We used a brand name sauce. We also added fresh ginger, garlic, red pepper diced and scallions. It was delicious. Not like restaurant KONG Pao, better. It was delicio...

Very easy and great flavor. Yes I will make it again

This recipe worked very well.

Knocked it outta the park with this one. Super easy & delicious!

Very good! Didn’t have dry sherry, chili peppers and sesame oil but was still very good!

This is really good! I doubled the amount of bok choy to give it extra vegetables. Would've given it 5 starts but one of the kids was not a fan. (and she loves Chinese food)
