    This recipe will be great with some revisions. Way too much soy sauce and hoisin. Id say at least half if not even less. I added brown rice to the lettuce cups to cut the saltiness.

    Really good recipe – easy to follow. May want to cut back on soy sauce, i found it a little salty. Plus, if it’s watery, continue to saute.

    Really good flavor. The kids love it and said this is a must to do again.

    My notes: Followed the recipe exactly but it came out soupy. We were hoping for a thicker more glazed sauce. I dont think the water is needed. We had to strain the mixture before serving.

    Also, I will double it next time. Its more like an appetizer for 4, but its tasty enough that we wanted to make it a meal.

    This was a big no for me and my husband. After reading the reviews, I took note to not use too much soy sauce. I cut the soy sauce and hoison sauce to only 1/2 cup each. After pressure cooking, it was like soup. We decided to sauté again and reduce the liquid which helped. After serving, we took a bite and were both like, holy cow. Its SO salty. Like not even edible salty. It was a waste. Look at the nutrition facts – it has 4,642mg of sodium! Insane.

    Toooooo salty! And toooo much liquid! Recipe has potential but needs some major tweaks. I used half the amount of soy and hoisen and still too salty! I dont think this recipe can possibly be healthy with the amount of sodium. Simple changes could save this recipe

    I would give this zero stars if I could. I made this and I could only have one bite, same with my husband. One cup of soy sauce!!!!?? One cup of hoison sauce! Come on! This should not have 4 stars. I didn’t even use a cup of each and it was still too salty. After a bite I felt like I ate a salt lamp! Terrible!

    Very good!! A little juicy so i could have probably cut the soy sauce and hoisin sauce in half but overall we all loved it!!

    Lots of salt if you like tbat. Lower the soy sauce if youre not a fan of it- I absolutely loved it but again, that’s not always what people like. Do what suits you!

    Not good & definitely absolutely not healthy. 4200mg of sodium (American Heart Associstion recommends daily intake should be ~1500mg-2000mg) Tooooooo salty

    This recipe uses way too much soy salt and hoisin. Took one bite and threw the entire thing away. Absolute garbage.
