  1. Cut back on red pepper flakes to 1/4 tsp, I added 18oz package mushrooms (already cut, I did cut them smaller to be unified with other veggies) 1-red bell pepper chopped, 1 can of water chestnuts drained, added extra fresh ginger, used oyster sauce instead of hoisin sauce, added 2 Tbls of chinese 5 spice,and 1 Tbls sriracha ( for extra heat) used stir fry rice noodles. Came out awesome Great base recipe to add your own touches to, thank you. Hubby and sons (17&22) gave it 5 stars.

  2. This was really good. I cut the red pepper down to 1/2 tsp, but it was still pretty spicy. I'll only put 1/4 tsp next time. The family really enjoyed it though. Thank you!
