I made this for dinner tonight and we hought it was good, but not great. I'd give it a 3.5 stars, and I'm bumping that up to 4 because I made some small modifications that may have affected how I felt about the dish. I didn't really change the recipe, but rather how I served it. I bought thin, boneless fast fry chops and cut them into strips, and used all the other ingredients plus thin egg noodles to do a stir-fry. I doubled the sauce (I put a little bit less than double of the broth and coconut milk, and a little bit more than double PB and honey) partly because of the other reviews and because I was mixing the noodles right into it. I might suggest to anyone wanting to do something similar to use rice instead or a thin spaghetti rather than the very fine egg noodles, because they got kind of mushy with the sauce (but that's of course not the fault of the recipe). This had good flavour though, but I think it's missing something I can't put my finger on. Even though I added more PB than called for it, I didn't taste it too much and I like a nice peanut buttery sauce. I also added more ginger when stir frying the pork as well as red pepper flakes, but it still didn't have any kick. I'm not a spicy food person, but I think maybe that's what I missed here, a lil kick. My fave part was the crunchy peanut and green onion topping - it was nice! (I didn't have any cilantro, maybe that also would add a lil somethin somethin to this). Overall, pretty good!
