  1. I followed the sauce proportions exactly, but subbed powdered ginger and powdered garlic for fresh. And I held my breath when I put in beef tip meatless substitute from Gardein…and it worked! I’ll never put Panda Noodle out of business, but as a brand new vegetarian I think this life style change just might be ok. Thanks, SkinnyMs, couldn’t do it without you.

    1. We’re so glad you were able to make this recipe your own, Nancy, and that you loved it so much! Thank you!
