This recipe as is (in my experience) did not taste good. BUT I was able to take the basic ingredients and with a few tweaks I made a great meal. So for that I give it 2/5 stars. Starting with the positive: I loved the almond flavour that this stir fry offered. And pairing it with pineapple was shockingly delicious. I also like that I didn't have to use a whole bunch of different pots to make this; it was very dish-friendly! The first time I made up my sauce though, there was way too much soy sauce for me-- that's literally all I could taste in the sauce. I ended up throwing out all my hard work and starting over. My second time around I used sesame oil (rather than canola oil), added an extra tsp of brown sugar, put in the whole can of pineapple (juice and fruit combined), ommitted the Soy Sauce, added some extra spices and lemon juice, increased the amount of ginger and chopped up some Gala apples to add to the mix. I also adjusted the corn starch ratio, as I had trouble getting my sauce to thicken up. Anyway like I said, I had to basically rewrite the recipe to end up with a tasty product. So I can't in any good mind give it a better rating. It provided me with some inspiration, but isn't a dish I would recommend to a friend. Sorry!
