    This was great. Just hit the spot for Asian cravings. Didn’t have chili sauce so doubled the sriracha since we like spicy. Will make again.

    It was so good my kids thought it was too spicy, so I had to add more honey and soy sauce. We used cut up asparagus, yellow and orange bell peppers I will for sure make again just less siracha & chili paste.

    I had most ingredients in my kitchen. I didn’t have coconut amino or green beans. I used frozen broccoli and cauliflower and low sodium soy sauce. I’m sure it negates the healthy description, but it was fantastic. I saved the recipe and will make again with the green beans and aminos.

    You really need a good wok and a gas stove to pull this off. Heat needs to be much bigger than an electric stove. I used my gas grill stove and it was just okay. I found it a little bland and added some more salt, garlic and ponzu. Agree with others, double the sauce.

    Really enjoyed this, double up the sauce ingredients as suggested. The heat was just right for us, gradually getting warmer as you get through it. Will def make again, will add more veg next time.
    Spicy but very like Prik King at my favorite Thai restaurant

    Tried this tonight and as much as I love spicy food, I wouldn't add any extra. It's spicy as is but delicious! I highly recommend doubling the sauce.
