This was a bit too salty for our family. It was certainly easy to make. I happened to buy a stir fry mix that included water chestnuts, I would try to find a different mix the next timeGiants brand asian stir fry mix around. Crushed red pepper flakes are hit and miss with the family. Sometimes they are a little to tough, I guess they didn’t absorb enough moisture in the pan.
