In our home we all love stir fries and this is a good one! Stir frying is also my favorite way of cooking veg so we added some cauliflower, broccolli, snap peas. I don't like the taste of sesame oil so used peanut oil but made no other changes. As expected, it was really yummy and the family all voted it 10 out of 10!

This is a really nice stir-fry recipe though I wonder if the vacuum sealer is really necessary. Does it speed up the marinade process appreciably? I'm content with simply sealing it in a plastic zip-loc bag and letting it rest in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. I think we do have a vacuum sealer around here, so it might be worthwhile to dig it out and see if there's any real difference. Tasty recipe, though.
