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.
