      My family LOVED this recipe! DH doesn't really like stir-fry and I bought the meat to use on a night when he was working. Of course I didn't get around to making anything with it until his night off. I searched for a stir-fry that had flavors he would enjoy and found this one. It was a huge hit with everyone and I was told that it was the best stir-fry DH has ever had. I loved the combination of flavors. The Thai Bird chilies balanced the fresh ginger and orange very nicely. I didn't have any Szechuan peppercorns, so used plain old black peppercorns, but I made good use of my homemade sun-dried orange peel! Fabulous dish! Thanks so much for posting, littleturtle! :)

      Fantastic! I didn't have Szechuan peppercorns, and used orange zest, but it had a great kick, lovely zesty orange and rich flavour. Definitely one I'll make again.

      Very tasty. Added a few extra chiles, and also put some orange zest in the rice. Reminded me a lot of Leann Chin dish. But of course, I liked mine better. Cheers.
