    I made this recipe tonight and it was so delicious! My family loved it! I added more garlic than called for because we are garlic fiends and a little extra ginger as well. I think next time I’ll try it with pineapple tidbits added. I served it with white rice and roasted broccoli. There are no leftovers!
