Not too bad. We made a good amount of additions/substitutions, but I agree with other people that if you don't, there's not much flavor there. First, it needs more than a 1/2 cup of chicken broth. I ended up using a whole can. When you put in the meat, like others have said, add some garlic and ginger. We also added some chopped fresh cilantro which helped boost the flavor by A LOT. Delicious if you love cilantro like us. Once it was done, it tasted like it was missing something, and a good squeeze of lime juice really helped. I think next time, we might try a little coconut milk too in order to give it a real Thai flavor!

We did not care for this recipe at all. Wasted a lot of good ingredients. I kept adding garlic, ginger, red pepper, etc. to give it some flavor. Definitely won't make it again!

This is excellent and can be eaten over rice or noodles. The mix of mushrooms and peanut butter is great! I recommend using 1/4 cup green bell peppers and 1/4 cup red bell peppers, if you have them.

We really enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to put together with flexible ingredients and seasonings. I used grated cabbage and carrots instead of prepackaged cole slaw mix. Lots of flavor and healthy ingredients.

This is a keeper. I did use grilled chicken I had on hand and the red pepper flakes. Served jasmine rice on the side. Alena6

I used dark soy sauce, which is thicker than regular and added a lot of garlic which, I think, really helped add much more flavor.

I made this just the other night and it was FABULOUS. I forgot the bean sprouts and it was still great. I will definitely make this many more times. SO GOOD!
