About this recipe: This is a recipe I came across from my friend's dad. When I tasted it and it tasted a lot like a hot pot dish I had at one of my Chinese friend's house. So I made some changes to it to make it my own.
Was good- my husband and I enjoyed it although it was a bit too spicy for us to love it (hence the 4 stars) but that is of course a personal preference. We like spice- just not gut on fire spice! We will make it again but for us we'll probably cut the red pepper flakes in half. - 28 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Hey, I have a few suggestions for anyone trying this out: With the red pepper flakes, don't use a heaping teaspoon, it will be too much. It will over take the flavor. You can use any meat you would like... Just make sure you cut it thin, if you use fish or shrimp use due care. A Soy ginger salad dressing can take the place of those two ingredients. I have made this recipe several time using Spaghetti Squash, it is a fantastic alternative to the egg noodles, I actually prefer it. I hope these suggestions help... I would also recommend using crunchy peanut butter! Enjoy! - 01 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great recipe! It was a bit too spicy, so you can reduce the red pepper flakes. I think 1/2 teaspoon is probably enough. I cooked this for a work potluck and everyone loved it. I made a vegan version though with no chicken and more soy sauce, instead of using oyster sauce. - 10 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
