Quick, easy and, most importantly, delicious! I'll definitely be making this again. I especially loved the thickness of the sauce :)

Scrumptious! I used leftover pork from Sunday roast and the pork was sticky and absolutley gorgeous!

Whole family loved this, i didn't use snow peas as I couldn't get them and I used red peppers. I added wide flat rice noodles instead of egg and added them to the wok before serving. I served snake beans with a coconut soy peanut, chilli sauce on the side. YUMMY!!!

Brilliant! It tasted and smelt like an authentic Chinese meal.Very quick and easy to make and as a plus, I got to use my chopsticks :)

This is really simple to make! I'm a bit of a noob to cooking, and I thought I'd pick something simple.
This meal is awesome! Having your hands smell of ginger is amazing! It's light, not heavy and yet it's quite filling. It's not expensive either! If you're looking for a first meal to make (or a millionth) I'd definitely say give this one a try!

I made this dish with a couple of changes to the ingredients. I used a yellow pepper instead of a green pepper to add a bit more colour, and used chilli flavoured noodles to add a bit of ''bite' to the dish. I found that the chilli noodles went extremely well with the other ingredients.

I was very surprised that such a simple recipe could produce such a wonderfully tasting dish. This recipe is a winner as far as my family is concerned and no doubt the dish will be making a regular appearance on the family dinner table. Highly recommended.

Really quick and delicious! I used fresh egg noodles instead of dried ones as they are a lot tastier. Will definitely make again.

Delish! I haven't made a stir fry sauce from scratch before as they tend to contain loads of ingredients you'd never use for anything else but as this recipe doesn't, it's perfect! The second time i made it I added some chinese five spice to the sauce which I would deffinately recommend.

Delicious, I used leftover roast pork and thinned sauce by adding a little water. Definitely be using this again.

Excellent meal and very quick. I like to bulk up the veg with some baby corn and then rather than use egg noodles stir through some rice noodles when the sauce is bubbling.

Made this tonight for dinner, loved it and so easy to add more veg or more ingredients for a bigger family. Definitely a winner in my house

This is delicious - very easy and quick. Has become a regular in this household. I have done it using chicken too.

As always I halved the amount of meat and added more veg. Thin ribbons of courgette, mushrooms, sweetcorn, pak choi, spring greens, broccoli or whatever I have in the fridge! Lovely quick and tasty recipe.
