    My boyfriend and I made this for dinner tonight and it was so yummy! Easy to make too. This will go into our recipe box for future dinners 🙂

    Made this for dinner tonight, it had barely any flavor.. had to add red pepper flakes and extra soy sauce to make it edible. I’ve had and made better in the past, so I won’t be making this again.

      Bummer! We have made this often for years. Just a light stir fry. A little soy sauce drizzled on top and that’s it!

    This has become my go-to stir fry recipe – thanks! We don’t like snow peas so I usually make it with broccoli, mushrooms, and/or zucchini. I double the ginger and add another garlic clove for more punch. We have to leave out the cashews b/c of a nut allergy in our house, but I bet that would be delicious.

    Thank you!
