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!

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.
