I will readily admit I had no hopes for this recipe. It sounded “blah”. Man was I wrong!!! This recipe is amazingly delicious!!! The sauce is SO memorable, and combined with everything else it’s...

It has a decent, nice taste but it's really not all that special compared to other asian stir fry dishes.
