Rcmjrinc 1 month agoFamily favorite!! I. Added water chestnuts instead of baby corn. Adding other veggies works great. Once ingredients are together it is very easy to make. Love it!

ProfLisa 4 years agoNot crazy about the carrots, but it's a good recipe otherwise!
Namaste9600 5 years agoMy family loved this. I doubled the sauce because my family likes the sauce for rice. I would marinated the meat in the sauce next time for extra favor. And it was easy.
