I made this recipe at school for catering. I added extra oyster sauce, soy sauce, bean sprouts and garlic. I forgot to use the ketchup but it still tasted really nice!

Just made this dish and it was very nice, I took the advice of one or two other comments and added ginger, garlic, chilli peppers and a splash of soy.

This went down a storm with my 6 yr old daughter and is a great way to get her to try more veggies. I made it with leftover roast chicken instead of prawns and added an extra tbsp of oyster sauce, but still very tasty. So easy to make, even my husband managed it!!

This was very quick to put together. Sprinkled some salted peanuts on at the end to give it some texture.

This was perfect, just added a red chilli with the red pepper as we like a bit of spice.

I thought it was easy and tasty, although it did need a bit of chilli and ginger to spice it up and be careful that you don't put too much tomato sauce in as this made it a bit sweet.

So easy to make and had a lovely flavour. Agreed that it is great with prawn crackers.

Made this for supper tonight, very nice! I added a bunch of spring onions to the pan with the red pepper. Enjoyed lovely crunchy, fresh vegetables. Will be making this again.

This was OK - the sauce needed abit of help. I added garlic, ginger and chilli and a splash of soy sauce.
