    It turned out amazing!

    The frying portion was great however the sauce didn’t turn out right. I followed exactly. I used slightly less oil because it was looking to oily before heating

    It was ok, but I wouldn’t make it again. Not as much flavor as I thought it would have.

    Very time and dish intensive, but delicious over some plain rice! I substituted sriracha for the chiles as that's all we had on hand, but overall, pretty tasty!

    awesome flavor. added some sriracha and sweet chili sauce just for added sweet heat. definitely use a lower sodium soy sauce because mine came out on the saltier side.
