    Loved this. I added mushrooms and Bean Sprouts. I would probably add a little less soy sauce. It was a little salty, but, my family loved it.

    Great flavor! I added a bit more brown sugar. Next time I'll boil it longer to make it thicker.

    I don't think this was as good as it could have been due to my lack of cooking skills. But it was quite good, and I think it'll get better with practice. Will make again!

    Really good recipe. I had to use flour in place of corn starch and it still turned out really good. I also switched the asparagus out for broccoli and mushrooms. Delish
