    Superquick & easy, made to recipe, using bottled ginger for fresh. Very flavorful sauce -- add some bell pepper for color if you've got it.

    Excellent and easy recipe and very tasty. this is great for when you want Chinese. I will definitely try this with tofu. This is great for a week night. Served with brown rice. This is added to the dinner rotation.

    Very Good. Very Easy. Quick weeknight meal. I did take the advice and double the sauce. That worked well. Served over rice. This will go in the rotation.

    I thought this was fabulous! Used fresh garlic and ginger. I would double the sauce next time. Easy, quick and tasty!

    This was such a simple dish to make. I served it over rice. I think next time, I might double the sauce recipe. It was delicious though just the way it was. I will make this again.

    What a fantastic recipe! I substituted 1/8 tsp ground ginger for the fresh and used half zucchini half broccolini since that's what I had on hand. I served it over jasmine rice. My family LOVED it! I thought it was spectacularly good! This is sure to be a regular at our house in the future.

  • hdharding Posted: 10/19/09

    This was a great recipe. I followed a fellow reviewers suggestion and used sliced red pepper. I also only had ground ginger on hand so I added it to the sauce mixture. I halved the rest of the ingredients except for the sauce as there are only two of us.

    Excellent recipe! I make it often and our family loves it!

    Great, solid recipe. I thought the flavor was there & the whole dish turned out great. I followed the recipe exactly other than using fresh garlic instead of jarred. I will definitely make this one again.

  • XplorR Posted: 01/13/09

    Great flavors. I prefer a little sweet with the heat, so I added about 1 Tbsp honey, and a touch of 5 spice. I agree with doubling the sauce, it's yummy and you'll want more.

  • jmcassell Posted: 01/21/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is a family staple, since I usually have all the ingredients in the house. I prefer fresh broccoli, but frozen florets or edamame work as well. It's one of the few

  • Nanooky Posted: 02/27/09

    This is quick and easy AND quite tasty. Nothing razzle dazzle but worthy of making over and over. I used real garlic (2 cloves) and more ginger (we love it). Enjoy.

  • Vesuvio Posted: 04/14/09

    This is an easy and delicious recipe! The sauce is absolutely fantastic and I've used it with other stir-fry recipes. A hit in our household that is usually made once a week!!

  • mcp3pu Posted: 04/07/09

    I made this recipie and it was okay first time around. But, because I like a little color and crunch to my meal, I added waterchestnuts, peapods and sliced red peppers. It was a visual delight as well as great for each bite! Do not substitute the sesame seed oil (flavored oils have their purpose). Do increase the sauce it's great flavoring and I prefer fresh ginger over jarred. Change of pace? Use noodles instead. I've never had much luck with rice noodles so I used angle hair instead. Fantastic!

  • Caroline09 Posted: 11/29/10

    This was very good. We will add it to our rotation. The one change I made was to add water chestnuts and I really thought that went a long way. It's probably not something I would serve for guests, but it's a great, quick, healthy family dinner. We took the extras for leftovers the next day and they were still good.

  • Karen R Posted: 04/22/10

    I used beef broth instead of chicken broth as that is all I had, and it was still delicious. Quick, delicious and healthy meal for a weeknight.

  • Run4Cupcakes Posted: 11/23/09

    Eh. It was ok but kinda missing something. Maybe less stock and more soy sauce or rice wine vinegar?

  • mommypalooza Posted: 12/17/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    My hubby enjoyed it but i thought it was a bit bland...i would add more ginger and soy sauce. I used regular soy sauce not the low sodium kind either and half the crushed red peppers but my kids still thought it was too spicy.

  • kimemeki Posted: 03/31/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I love it, I've tried it on chicken, shrimp and beef, I love all three. I even made it without the sesame oil, and with ground ginger and still loved it. Yummy!

  • Tagurit Posted: 03/20/11

    I made this last night and my four-year old loved it. Even the veggies got thumbs up and a grin. I doubled the sauce, only added half the onion, tossed in some napa cabbage and used half the red pepper flakes.

  • fledglingchef Posted: 03/12/11

    I made this for dinner last night, and it got rave reviews. As some other reviewers suggested, I doubled the sauce, except for the crushed red pepper. It had just enough bite without being overly spicy. Also, I'm a veggie fan, so I added a red bell pepper and half a head of napa cabbage with the broccoli, and then added one can each of water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and bean sprouts during the last minute or 2 of cooking. Served it over brown rice, and it was delicious! Definitely part of the rotation.

  • kokophuffs Posted: 03/21/11

    I thought it was a good, basic recipe to build on. I didn't have fresh ginger or dark sesame oil so I substituted powdered ginger and olive oil. I added twice the broccoli and then added mushrooms, red and green peppers that I had in the fridge. The sauce was a little too zesty and not enough, so I doubled it and added some brown sugar to sweeten it up a bit. I served it with jasmine rice. This is a good recipe and will have to try it with chicken since I normally don't have shrimp. I'll also have to try steak one day. Even though my middle son doesn't like spicy, he enjoyed the dish and wanted more.

    We love this dish! So much flavor and a zesty kick! Thanks!

  • carolrk Posted: 03/11/11

    Works with any vegetable. I tried this with pea pods and bok choy, and it was very good. I suspect any veggie would work. I also used half the shrimp (for 2 people), about 2/3 the veggies, and all the sauce, and it was fine. Tip: add 1/4 cup water and steam the veggies for 2 min. instead of stir frying. I wouldn't make this for company, but for a family dinner it is outstanding.

    What a waste of expensive Shrimp! would not make again.

  • Sherry633 Posted: 04/15/11
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was easy and yummy. I doubled the recipe for the sauce, except for the red pepper, didn't use low sodium anything, used jarred ginger, omitted the onion, and used light sesame oil. Served over brown rice and it was so good. Thanks for the great recipe!

  • foxegurl266 Posted: 05/07/11

    The shrimp turned out really tasty, but the rest was pretty bland. I don't know that I'd make this again.

  • Windsor5350 Posted: 08/28/11

    Excellent! This will definitely be a repeat.

  • anniewho Posted: 09/25/11
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Delicious! I followed the advice from the comments and doubled the first 6 ingredients. I might add a bit more stock next time. I also added more red pepper flakes, as my family likes it spicy. It was not only delicious, but very easy to make.

  • hannahmusic Posted: 04/17/12

    Way to much rice vinegar and sesame oil! That was all I could taste! Yuk!

  • Sigrid61 Posted: 11/29/12
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I made it with chicken. I added 1 cup of edamame, 1 red bell pepper (thinly sliced), and a sweet onion. I also doubled the amount of sauce. It was delicious. I will try the recipe again but next time use shrimp.

  • daneanp Posted: 12/12/12

    So good. So easy. I added a tablespoon of water to the broccoli and onion mix midway through the cooking time to steam the broccoli a bit. It was perfect. Every bit as good as take out. Served over steamed jasmine rice and had a cucumber side salad

  • SarahLD Posted: 01/21/13
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This turned out great and was so easy! A great way to get my 2 yr old to eat her broccoli! I doubled the sauce and it was the perfect amount. I was out of rice vinegar so substituted with apple cider vinegar and a little sugar. I also used a little olive oil rather than sesame and it was fine. Will definitely add this to the rotation for an easy and tasty week night dinner!

  • Christina21 Posted: 03/28/12

    Loved loved loved! Would make again...but with shrimp with the tails off! My family loved this dish!

  • sedutta Posted: 04/16/12

    This was easy and tasty. The stir fried broccoli is to die for- it's the best way to get some broccoli into the diet. I usually double the sauce part (we like more suce for the rice). I've served this with white rice, brown rice, fried rice, and rice noodles. Awesome every time!

  • JulieRae97 Posted: 12/02/12

    It was okay.

  • wpiersante Posted: 10/23/12
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was an excellent tasting as well as easy to make dish. Everyone loved it when I made it a few weeks ago, even though, I realized afterward, that I forgot to add the garlic, and we love garlic! We didn't even miss it! We enjoyed it so much, in fact, that my guests requested I make it again when visiting this past weekend, and also asked for the recipe to take home. It really is good. By the way, I actually tripled the first 6 ingredients, because we like a little more sauce for the rice, and because I always add more veggies than called for.

  • GigiInDC Posted: 05/29/13

    Good quick weeknight dinner. I doubled the chicken broth, halved the soy sauce, and added a tablespoon brown sugar to balance the saltiness. Will be in rotation switching it up with chicken, beef and pork. Served with jasmine rice.

  • KrystleM05 Posted: 11/19/13

    I made this over brown rice and my husband loved it. He said "I got down" on this meal. I will be making this again. The sauce was perfect, I would not change the measurement on any ingredients. I personally didn't know how much rice to cook so I only did 1 cup. I didn't want to make too much, but I should have done 2 cups. It was the perfect amount the way I did it though, but my husband and I both are big eaters. Also I love onion so next time I think I might do 1 1/2-2 cups of the onion.
