I think this recipe needs a fair review. See, taste buds on your tongue vary from person to person, which means that what may taste good to some people may not taste good to others. You should t...

I am only giving 4 stars because I tweaked this quite a bit, and there aren't very specific directions. It was extremely easy and quick, and my boys (ages 4, 6, and 32) all loved it! I added 1...

Didn't taste a thing like Szechwan, but it was alright, and my husband liked it! I used 1 tbsp sesame oil instead of 3 tbsp olive oil and added 1 tbsp soy sauce because the flavors were too sh...

I liked this recipe. I did find it a little too sweet and not enough spicy. Next time I will add a little less sugar and more peppers.
