What a shame. The only recipe on Good Food so far I literally had to throw away as inedible. Had to make hubby a bacon sarnie! Soy sauce and Savoy cabbage just doesn't go, bitter with bitter means double bitter! The small amounts of ginger, garlic,mushrooms and 5 spice were overtaken by the bitter taste. Picked out the prawns and threw away the rest. If it wasn't too late I would have taken out the cabbage, added mixed peppers and just added a bought stir fry sauce, might have been able to eat it then!

Hi Busybee, Loz, Griff, Sylvief, sw77. As you all pointed out, the method for this recipe was incorrect. It was down to human error and it's now been changed. We're really sorry we only just picked up on the mistake and for any inconvenience. In future, if you email any questions to this inbox, as well as flagged comments, is checked daily so errors can be rectified quickly. Apologies again on behalf of the Good Food web team.

On the basis that if something is flagged as inappropriate the it should be looked at by a moderator somewhere. Would the next person in, please flag my comments as inappropriate and we may get the recipe sorted out. I can't see anywhere obvious to contact GF about an error. Not everyone will be able to figure out the correct order to cook the ingredients.

sw77: Apparently not. Mistakes happen, but it would be nice if Good Food would correct it.
