    If you've never had decent Chinese food before, this probably tastes OK; it definitely caters to the midwestern palate. However, for those of us who know what decent Chinese food tastes like, this is horribly disgusting. I should have known when I saw ketchup as an ingredient, especially in that quantity, and when ginger wasn't included. The dish tasted like ketchup, but not in a good way. Kids who normally devour Asian flavors (and who love ketchup) wouldn't touch it. Had to throw it away.

    Incredibly easy and delicious! Our 4 and 6 year old absolutely loved it, and we all had seconds!

    This dish has a beautiful presentation. We did not care for the sauce, however...it was bland...should have been sweeter in my opinion...but the dish was gorgeous looking!!

    Great meal. Thumbs up from the family who have all lived in Malaysia. Seemed to be too many peppers even with using three.

    This was a really good meal. I have to say 5 stars. I served with whole grain rice.

    This dish tasted primarily of ketchup. If I can find something to reduce that taste it would be quite good. For a quick meal it is still ok.

    AWESOME!! My no-vegetable-eating husband LOVED this dish and asked me to make it again. Great for my 5 year old too!

    This was great! I made it this weekend and it was a real hit. I found the pineapple really added the right about of tang to this dish. It was not the same without it.

    I made this last night. While not gourmet both of my kids enjoyed it and the picky one even at some pepper. I used yellow and orange peppers. Thanks!
