    Loved this recipe. I made it almost as written, except I used half the sugar and added a tablespoon of Mirin (sweetened rice wine.). I served it over cauliflower rice and chopped sautéed book choy. My husband and I loved it!

    Pretty good recipe. First time I made it almost as is - didn't add sugar, possibly didn't add vinegar & used less soy sauce, but added a bit of Trader Joe's Sesame Soy Ginger Vinaigrette at the end. It was good, but barely any sauce.The second time I used more garlic - about 5 cloves, I probably used less ginger, but in addition to making it into matchsticks I also grated some of it on a micro plane. After sauteing onion, garlic & ginger, I deglazed the pan with some sake. Again, I used less soy sauce and added a whole bunch of vegetables simply because I had a little bit of each left over that needed to be used up - celery, mushrooms, fresh baby spinach, zucchini, sauteed some of the scallions, chicken broth to make more sauce, did not add any sugar or vinegar, but added that Sesame Soy Ginger Vinaigrette at the end. It was really tasty & chock full of veggies.Wish I had some bean sprouts to add. Basically, you can make almost as is for a quick meal, but I would definitely be adding broth to make more sauce or you can add a bunch of veggies to make it healthier & more filling. Really whichever veggies you like would work. I really liked the ones I added & will try to have them on hand next time I make this dish. Asparagus should work well in it, broccoli, etc.

    Definitely double the sauce. I added carrots and it added a really nice sweetness and worked with the ginger very nicely. Will defnitely add MORE broccoli and carrots so I can fill up without the starches .

    Great recipe. I added fried zucchini at the end and it was delicious. I liked the other reviewer's idea to add broccoli, and maybe carrots too. I'm definitely making this again.

    This is great. The sauce has an excellent, sweet flavor. I doubled it, too. I also added broccoli, which was a nice touch.

    This is a great, easy recipe. Served mine over brown rice. Must be a fan of ginger though!

    Delicious!!! I doubled the sauce as recommended by other posts, tossed in noodles and steamed broccoli once everything was ready, made for a great well-balanced meal! I was tempted to use agave syrup rather than sugar, but decided to stick to the recipe, think I'll try it next time.

    Fairly easy and very yummy recipe. I reduced the sugar in the sauce to 1 teaspoon, but that's my taste. Definitely recommend this recipe, especially if you like ginger!
