This was a nice, quick mid-week meal. However, you definitely need to add some veg and the oyster sauce was salty, although surprisingly nice. I added more sauce than was suggested, which I'm glad I did as it would have been too dry otherwise

This was delicious. My husband and I made it tonight and it was very easy. We added some green beans and sweet chili sauce (as per someone else's recommendation). Next time I would add some mange tout as well. We made double the sauce.

This was so quick to make, and delicious too!! I cheated and used 'lazy chilli' but i don't think it affected the taste. Will definately be making this one again!!

Very quick, easy and tasty dish. Will make again and again. Added some more oyster sauce and a little sweet chilli sauce to prevent it being too dry. Lovely.

I used sesame oil instead of vegetable oil and I also stirfried some green beans. I didn't have any basil, but even without it it was absolutely great.

Absolutely delicious!! I thought this dish would be a little plain on its own so I added an extra side dish of stir fried noodles with vegitables. Would definately do this again!! My husband loved it too!!

i have finally tried it last night, whipped it up in 15 mins for 3 people it went down a storm, my fussy partner loved it and wants it again!!!!
Very quick easy and tasty dish to make, it is filling with lots of rice but one problem i feel is i would prefer a little more sauce so i will have to experiment to get some more other than that it's a super meal!!!!!!

Although easy to make, it was not very exciting. It was quite dry and would not bother making it again.

Very enjoyable, used sirloin steak which turned out perfect for the dish. Its easy to make, tasty and left you wanting more. I will certainly be making this dish again.

We love this recipe so simple to make and tastes beautiful.

Tastier using sirloin steak rather than cheaper cuts.
