Lovely quick and cheap dinner. Added some baby corn and half a red chilli. Also used half tbsp sweet chilli sauce and half tbsp hot pepper sauce instead of chilli sauce. Definitely going on the regular dinner list!

Great easy stir fry recipe and a good way to use turkey mince. I would be tempted to add some chilli next time for some added oomph!

I made this tonight and added some Pak Choi and tender stem brocoli to fatten it up a bit, was really tasty. Never tried turkey mince before but really enjoyed it.

I made this for 2 adults and 2 children, so slightly increased the quantities. And, I switched the turkey mince for turkey steaks that I cut into thin strips making it easier for chopsticks. It was very quick, tasty and devoured happily by everyone. I used bottled Sweet Chilli Sauce, which seemed to work really well.

Lovely comfort food and very easy. Added some cauliflower and it could take more veggies (next time I'd try julienned carrots or bok choy) to be a bit healthier - but it's delicious as it is.

A great hit here! Make this regularly substituting the green beans for other veg. Love the flavour combination with the turkey. Making it again tonight...red peppers tonight, I think!

really yummy - I used turkey strips sliced really thin and added some thin sliced carrots with the beans. I liked the idea of the broccoli too. Thanks for the tip about freezing the Hoi Sin sauce!

So easy & a hit with my guy who can be fussy especially if there are noodles (pasta) around.Though having Ramen Noodles (loved the film) used Amoy - the garlic & chilli I think.Simple & lovely.

Made this tonight, it was really tasty and quick, was disappointed when I went into the fridge and I didn't have any chilli sauce so I added a little tabasco and a soy sauce to the hoisin and lime, it was yummy, I love noodle dishes!

This was horrible! The turkey mince just became a pulp like mixture and didn't brown up in the wok. The hoision mix with chilli and lime didn't work for us and we ended up binning it.

I substituted prawns for the turkey mince and it worked very well. The finished dish was lovely especially with the green beans.

Superb dish, the only changes i made was I added broccoli as i had no green beans, no chillis added either. This was a big hit in my house, will do again.

Fantastic dish. So easy and quick to cook yet packed with flavour. Filling comfort food and healthy too! Although not listed on any hoisin sauce I have purchased I have found it to be freezable - most packets / bottles recommend ditching after being opened for a few days

I think hoi sin sauce is so yummy that adding lime and chilli to it is a bit of a waste.

I was not sure which type of chilli sauce to use, I can tell you that one tablespoon of tabasco is WAY TOO MUCH heat!

A nice recipe. I found it to be a little too limey so I will probably use a bit less next time. The family enjoyed it though and it was very low fat!
