      this was really delicious and easy to prepare. i made it as is, except i added some cornstarch with the water to thicken. dh loved it, i think i would have preferred the added red pepper, i did serve mine with hot chili sauce. very tasty.

      This was delicious! I doubled the sauce ingredients and added about 3 cups of assorted vegtables I needed to use up. When it was almost done I thickened it with a little cornstarch. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks for this wonderful and easy recipe.
