Expert Tips

Adding the stir-fry vegetables at the end keeps them from overcooking.

Use any stir-fry sauce in place of the teriyaki baste and glaze to vary the flavor.

The flavor of this chop suey-style dish is a blast from the past, so why not make it a retro '50s party? Serve a molded gelatin salad complete with "exotic" canned mandarin oranges. Don't forget the fortune cookies to go with coffee in the rumpus room.
