Rated 3 out of 5 by from Made this for dinner last night. Made this for dinner last night. It is a good dish when you need to make something quick and these ingredients are all in your pantry already. It is not a "wow" dish so it's not something that I would serve to company. I agree with the other reviews- it is a little bit too peanut buttery, so next time I will decrease the peanut butter by half. Also it's not spicy at all so if you like spice, you'll need to add some red pepper flakes to it.

I made a test recipe a few weeks ago and after my husband and I approved, made double the recipe for company over the Christmas holiday - was delicious - a real winner with all age groups. Even some of the grandchildren who won't eat anything "green" gobbled it up. I did cut down on the mushrooms - one 8oz. package for the double recipe and that was plenty for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word AWESOME! One word AWESOME! Tasted like I bought it from a restaurant. Great make ahead dish. I would just suggest if you do that make rice the night of. My nine year old autistic son who's extremely picky about his food ate two servings. Will definitely be adding this to our family recipe book and making triple the amount next time! Thanks

It was easy to make and came out fantastic even though we thought the combination of ingredients was a little strange. We like spicy food so we upped the amount of chili sauce and I think I may use a bit more Catalina dressing next time to make it saucier.

Yes, the ingredients do sound odd, and I wasn't sure what to expect, but much to my surprise, it was WONDERFUL! My very picky husband ended up fighting our kids for the last bits of this. They also begged me to make it again, which I will. Pretty easy to make as well.

Tastes great just as it is but if you want it to have some kick you'll definitely need to double the ginger or add some crushed red pepper flakes. Tastes as good as any as I have bought at Chinese restaurants, and so silly easy to make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My entire family's FAVORITE dish! My entire family's FAVORITE dish! They beg me to make this. It takes great! I usually serve it with steamed brocolli and spaghetti noodles tossed with a peanut sauce. I always have to double the recipe just to get any myself!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from quick and easy. quick and easy. would use powdered ginger instead of fresh one, red pepper flakes instead of the hot sauce. I like the taste of garlic would use at least 4 cloves. We enjoyed it and will make it again
