"I love to experiment with the variety of Asian condiments I keep on hand. It's more economical and healthier to use small amounts of a few sauces than using a bottled stir-fry sauce. I serve this with a fruit salad of pineapple, mango, and kiwifruit. If you prefer a vegetable side dish, steamed sugar snap peas or snow peas are a great choice." —Amy Sokol, San Antonio
