Outside of adding some fresh minced garlic I prepared this following the recipe closely. And we enjoyed the heck out of it. Sometimes things don't need a whole lot of explanation or analysis. This is one of those times. It works. (I used No Name Sirloin Steaks baby bok choy and basmati rice. Hubs made "Cucumber Sunomono" to go with - delicious ) Read More

It looked very nice. It wasn't an overly exciting flavor but the sauce was pretty strong/salty. I should have followed some of the other suggestions to cut down the soy sauce and add some ginger. Read More

Perfect for weekdays. Prepare night before so all you have to do next day is cook it. A few things I did other than recipe called for: 1) Marinate Beef overnight in salt pepper minced ginger. 2) Cut up all veggies night before. Placed all veggies together in ziplock bag in fridge. 3) Mixed sauce night before and added red pepper flakes to add spice. I browned the beef with the ginger that I marinated with. It added that "japanese" flavor that I was looking for. Enjoy! Read More

I found this recipe looking up healthier beef recipes on Allrecipes. It tasted pretty good but boy was it time consuming! I actually cut up all the vegetables and sliced the meat earlier in the day because I was going to be busy in the evening. Half the meat and vegetables had to be cooked at a time as suggested which made it a little messy and dirtied more dishes than necessary. The end result strangely reminded me a little bit of the flavor of chop suey. I definitely will try buying the sirloin as suggested. I thought it was way more tender than round steak. I also don't ever use bok choy so that was an interesting addition I had not thought of. Overall it was just too much time in the kitchen for my normal quick stir fry recipes but it surprisingly was much better than what I would expect from a healthier beef dish. Read More
