I made this before but apparently didn’t leave a review. We really liked this. Broccoli isn’t popular with a couple of people in our house, so I subbed green beans. They were great. The sauce was delicious, and coated well sine I was generous with the measurements. Probably could have used more shrimp because it s so popular, but that does get expensive. I will probably make this again, maybe with tofu or chicken. Yum!0 Helpful
Made with broccoli, red and green bell peppers (didn't have snow peas). Cooked tofu and shrimp separately and sauced everything separately. Turned out great.0 Helpful
The sauce was so good! I loved it. I used a frozen stir fry veggie mix and frozen broccolis and it cut down the prep time a lot.0 Helpful

This had good flavor and was easy to make. The longest part was prepping the vegetables. We steamed the carrots and broccoli a bit as the recipe suggested, which made them perfect! Our only complaints are that we should have steamed the bell peppers a bit with the other veggies to soften and there was almost no spice. It suggests adding hot sauce when serving, but next time we will be adding way more of the chili garlic sauce as well. Overall, it's a great recipe and one we are saving for later.0 Helpful
