Notes

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes. I originally got it from Cooking Light magazine, but have altered it to suit my tastes. I use sesame oil instead of peanut because the flavor is so good. And I have a heavier hand with the soy sauce, I use way more than the recipe calls for. But I usually use the low-sodium kind. And sometimes I switch it up and use chicken, steak, and different vegetables. It’s very versatile.
