Leave a commWonderful wonderful flavor. I didn't have fresh ginger so used 1 1/2 t. ground into the sauce mixture. I also doubled to sauce. Fantastic meal.ent...

This quick and easy recipe is a must have for even the beginner cook! The fresh garlic and ginger really lend a great authentic flavor to the meat. If you don't have a wok, no worries! A skillet or saut pan will do just fine, as long as it is hot (not smoking) If you don't want to serve it over rice, you could put it in a lettuce or rice wrap, or even a soft and warm flour tortilla!
