    Tasty...next time will add peppers a little later in the cooking time to maintain some crunch. I added squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some fresh parsley, in addition to green beans to boost vegetable content. I ate mine over cauliflower rice. My husband had brown rice. Yum

    Absolutely delicious! Served it with coconut rice for a quick and easy weeknight dinner. My Jamaican husband even gave his approval...not an easy task.

    It tasted great & it was pretty simple to make. You definitely don't have to be a chef to make this.

    Delicious. Made some minor substitutions: didn't use ketchup, added half a habanero, used orange bell peppers for color... I have never been a huge fan of cornstarch sauces, but this was really good.
