  • 1 8 oz bag snap peas
  • 1 can water chestnuts

We enjoyed this dish with our friends Kim and Ryan. We served the stir fry over rice (made 2 cups) and, with Kim's great suggestion, had croissant rolls on the side. Good combo!

Opinions

Katie: This stir fry was delicious! I love stir fry and this came out great. The sauce was a bit less spicy than I usually enjoy, but was still good. Since we don't have a big enough skillet yet (grr...), we had leftover mixture that we couldn't cook at the same time as the amount needed for the evening. We kept the leftovers covered and in the fridge until we got more stir fry sauce and cooked it up the next day. The sauce was spicier and made the leftovers so good for lunch. :)

Potter: This was a great stir fry. It's a very simple recipe and is quick to make. If you don't want to use fresh veggies pick up a bag of frozen stir fry veggies and now you have a quick delicious meal in 20 minutes or less.
