Used 14oz of rice noodles, added a zucchini, used mixed stir-fry veggies rather than broccoli. Very good!0 Helpful
This was a big hit with my 7-yr-old daughter and her friends. I ended up using Soba noodles and adding in a zucchini. Also, I only had 8 oz of noodles on hand, but it seemed fine. Delish!0 Helpful
I need to make extra next time. My kids loved it!0 Helpful
Oh yum!! This was one of our favorite Stir Fry recipes! Think we loved the sauce the most...which of course I doubled. Definitely a re-do for sure!0 Helpful
Pretty solid, and I bet it's going to make great leftovers for lunch today!0 Helpful
My picky daughter liked "the meat"! Although truth be told, she's also liked other recipes with soy sauce/rice vinegar.0 Helpful
