NOTESAdd the sriracha 1/2 teaspoon at a time and taste. Everyone’s heat tolerance is different.At the request of readers I have modified this recipe to split the marinade. The half that is soaked with the meat is discarded and the other half is cooked with the meat and veggies at the end.This article and recipe adapted from this site
