This isn't heavily seasoned but I liked that - I want to taste the beef tenderloin I used and I wanted to actually taste all those wonderful fresh vegetables. Didn't use the sugar at all, and reduced the soy sauce by a third, replacing it with beef broth to compensate. Instead of white wine, apple juice or water I used rice wine (mirin). I added just enough of that mixture to coat the meat and reserved the rest to add to everything at the end. As the submitter suggested, I included a variety of vegetables to use what I had in the fridge - mushrooms, yellow and green bell peppers, onions, zucchini and yellow squash. I added fresh, minced garlic to the vegetables as well. I love stir fries. First of all, they taste good. And if you're careful not to use too much oil, if you have a little piece of meat in the freezer (1/2 pound serves me and Hubs with leftovers) and a few vegetables in the fridge, you can put together a nice, nutritious meal in less time than it takes to cook the rice. (I have to confess I don't care for pea pods, carrots or water chestnuts, explaining why I had none of them laying around to use)
