Added pineapple juice, pineapples, onions, and green and red pepper. Recipe was very good and easy to make.

This turned out OK in my book, my husband LOVED it. I guess my main peeve was that I used the "low sugar" apricot preserves but I didn't buy SMUCKERS, I bought an off brand and it had that weird diety, saccharin, aspartime after taste that diet sodas have. I will make this again but next time I am buying just regular apricot preserves and we'll see how they turn out. I served mine over a bed of white rice and once I got past the weird taste of the apricot low sugar stuff overall the meal was very tasty. EASY enough to make.

Wonderful and easy. I used green & red peppers instead of zucchini and mushrooms. I also added a few pineapple chunks. I only used about 3tbsp total of oil. My young kids thought it was a little spicy, but it was perfect for the grownups. Next time, I may tone down the red pepper flakes for their benefit. I saved this one to my Recipe Box for future use!

Excellent. Followed recipe to the letter and served over hot white rice. It was a crowd pleaser. The only bad thing and it was my fault, I might have added the zucchini too early because it turned out kindda slimy...but still delicious.

Yum! I used no oil and All Fruit spread and put it over my regular stir fry veggie mix I like. A little sweetness that I thought was just right.

This was awesome. I used beef and chicken and had a selection of different veggies for people to choose from. It was a big hit for sure and will be made again.
