    Really easy recipe with absolutely delicious results. The sauce is amazing, and could work equally well with chicken or beef. Definitely making it again, soon!  -  07 Jul 2010


    Great flavor, but I recommend using mushrooms instead of water chestnuts--they are not a traditional thai ingredient and they break easily when you try to skewer them.  -  10 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! I wanted to try this but don't have a grill so I made it as sort of a stew instead by simply adding three tablespoons of water and letting it cook in a pot for 30 minutes on low.  -  15 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
