      This recipe is anything but bland, it's just not spicy. I used fresh broccoli and carrots and stir-fried them ahead of time and then added them. Ended up adding about 1/2 cup of chicken broth as the sauce was very concentrated. I also added just a bit of chili paste to give it a kick. Sweet and savory--very good!

      I cut this recipe to serve 4, and used a mixture of fresh and frozen vegetables . Did all the preparation first, then it was quickly cooked. DH and I enjoyed it, and found the flavours and blending just right, DD felt it was a little too spicy, I think perhaps she found the sherry and sesame oil just a little too much for her younger tastebuds. I served this over egg noodles, for an enjoyable supper. Made for PAC Fall 2008

      We were looking for a spicy stir fry to compliment our white wine. Unfortunately we found this recipe a little bland...nothing spicy about it. We used fresh veggies instead of frozen and threw in some noodles. The recipe doesn't specify how much hoisin sauce to use so we used about 2 tablespoons (for a 2 person serving). Probably won't try this one again.
