This was really good!!! I mad a few changes though. Instead of the Soy Sauce, I used 1/2 cup of Yoshida's Original and then didn't have to use the corn starch, it's already thicker. Let it marinade for about an hour, and used mixed oriental veggies. My husband and I love spicy but the kids like it just "tasty", this was good! We added more chili peppers and it was great for us! (Of course we also added more garlic, love that too!) We had it over rice, good quick meal! Read More

I read the reviews and added extra flavor (more soy garlic hot pepper flakes) and the taste was still just average. Yes it's a quick dish to prepare but I'll stick with Sesame Beef or Awesome Korean Steak when I'm craving beef stir-fry. Read More

Easy and good, though not quite spicy enough for my taste. I increased the red pepper and garlic, and added grated fresh ginger. Instead of using vegetable oil, try using sesame oil instead. My family really liked this dish and requested I make it again. Read More

Very nice recipe. If you wish for sauce to be thicker, Add one full cup of broth to mix, drain off and add corn starch to thicken. Re introduce to sauce pan before serving. Read More

I didn't have the water chestnuts peanuts or broccoli so I just used some carrots. I used beef base since I didn't have chicken base. Even without many of the ingredients this was still very good. It wasn't that spicy and I even used some crushed dried Thai peppers (which are extremely hot) from our garden. After cooking the meat and tasting it (before adding the veggies) I added more dried peppers. That gave it some kick. I'd like to try it sometime with all the correct ingredients. Read More

my family loved this and it was a fast, easy meal. I bought the meat already in strips and substituted mushrooms for the water chestnuts. I also put another 1/4 c. of chicken broth in. But the flavor of the sauce was great. Read More

Love this recipe! It is one of the best beef stir-fry recipes I have come across! Of course I add my own medley of veggies and add extra hot pepper and a bit of sesame oil. Read More

There is nothing Szechuan about this beef. This was more like very bland broccoli beef. 1 TBS of soy to marinade 1 lb. of beef!? REALLY?? After following recipe i ended up having to add alot more soy and a bit of brown sugar to make it to my liking. This is one of my lowest ratings yet. Sorry but just way to bland if made as written.
