    Great taste and easy! Not as spicy as I thought it would be, even with some chili garlic sauce but I tend to be on the hot American side for food. Great regardless and add some broccoli as a side with the rice! Definitely would make again!

    Excellent! Made it with broccoli based on comments. Also doubled the recipe except for the brown sugar based on comments. Did not make it with red pepper flakes because of the kids, but the adults added chili garlic sauce to the bowl for some heat. Will definitely make this again.

    Love it! Full of flavor! As a vegan, instead of using beef, I used Lightlife’s meat crumbles as a replacement. Perfect!
