"Great meal for after Thanksgiving to use up leftover turkey. Very simple meal. This was one of my favorites as a
child. Serve over rice or chow mein noodles."

This was wonderful to my surprise and such a nice change to the traditional high calorie leftover recipes. I served it over rice. The only change I made was to add cashews after plating to add some crunch. THIS IS A KEEPER.
This was a refreshing change from the standard turkey leftover options- which is why I tried it. That said, I'd prefer a little more flavour and a little less sugar. I'll try adding a nice dose of fresh chopped garlic and ginger and reducing the sugar to 1 tablespoon the next time if I have left over turkey on hand. It might also be nice with real black bean sauce too (fermented black beans mashed with minced garlic and ginger)
Note: Instructions don't mention what to do with the onions - I sauteed mine before adding the veggies and the stock to the pan.
Great, easy recipe. I added a dash of soy sauce and a pinch of garlic powder at the very end to boost the flavour. Drizzled a very small amount of that peanut sauce on the top. Delicious! I will definitely make this again and play around with different flavours.
I'm in love with this! have made it twice in a week. The only changes I made was to increase the liquids as I added cooked noodles directly to the stir fry (I didn't want it too dry) and added kale because I had it. This is an awesome way to use leftover turkey. Also, you can make it as spicy as you like.
just made this meal tonight and it has filled me up a lot! And it was very nice my boyfriend liked it a lot too. Next time I will add lots more things to this to experiment maybe make it a bit spicy overall tastes great and very easy to make definitely will make this again
Relatively easy to make and quick-to-fix during a busy week. We served it up using our leftover stuffing as the "rice" underneath. What a delightful mix. Serve with a side of cranberries to get that slight bit of sweetness, which compliments the saltiness of the soy sauce. Makes great for a heavy serving for two, and then something leftover for the next day at lunch.
