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.
