Excelente mezcla de sabores. El aliño es muy rico. Sugiero la versión vegetariana del aliño aunque usen carne. Yo hice la receta vegetariana reemplazando el tofu por seitán. Además es la porción exacta.0 Helpful
Quick, easy, and delicious! Definitely keeping this one in my back pocket for a weeknight dinner when I'm pressed for time or feeling uninspired.0 Helpful
Added toasted sesame seeds and siracha, so delicious0 Helpful
Didn't taste bad, but didn't taste great. Husband thinks it could have used chilies. Subbed lettuce for jasmine rice and made the vegetarian dressing based on feedback from other users.0 Helpful
Nice clean eating type meal. I adjusted the dressing like others suggested and then added a bit of Sirachai.0 Helpful
The veggies were soggy with dressing. I would cut back on the amount of fish sauce. I grilled grass-fed flank steak and it was amaaazing.0 Helpful
