When my husband said, "This is really good, excellent" for the third time, I figured I better give it 5 stars. It is so easy to make and the taste is deliciously different. I used 1/4 cup organic dark brown sugar as I don't believe Splenda is all it's cracked up to be and I wanted an earthier flavor.


This was very good! I tried it this evening. I used frozen whole green beans, a tad bit more soy sauce while cooking, and let it cook a little longer to ensure the green beans were done. I also used beef stips (stir fry beef) instead of ground beef. Served it on a bed of brown rice. It was really good! Two thumbs up!


We did not care for this. WAY to sugary. will NOT make ever again.
