You can substitute pear juice with pineapple juice(either from can or fresh pineapple) which will make the meat really tender. Increased the sesame oil to 1T instead of 1t and added green onion to it. Read More

Very good smells wonderful! I needed something to go with a soba salad (from this site also) and finally decided to try this. It's been in my list of favorites for a while. After reading and comparing reviews I doubled mine as this: 3/4 Cup lite soy sauce 2 Cups pear juice 6 Tbl white sugar 4 Tbl minced garlic 2 Tbl sesame oil 2 tsp. sesame seeds (toasted) 1/4 tsp black pepper 2 pound thinly sliced rump roast green onions and carrots. I marinated for 3 hrs. (to easily thinly slice the meat freeze for about 2 hrs) I made a reduction from the leftover marinade and served it with some jasmine rice. Next time I'll tenderize the meat to make it more soft. Read More

This made good beef however I recommend sticking to the 1 hr. marinade time. I left mine overnight and the soy was so strong it tasted like my homemade jerky. It still gets 4 stars because we love that salty home made jerky taste. I'll have to try again with less marinade time. Read More

I loved the flavor. I marinated the meat for 24 hours. I didn't use any MSG but did add steamed broccoli to the skillet when cooking the meat. Excellent! Read More

Tasty tasty says my kids but like every asian dish I make they like lots of sauce so I put 2 cups of pinneaple juice to one cup of soy sauce and then doubled it in the recipe. Blended it all up with garlic and three onions and still they wanted more of the delicious sauce. Fried marinated pieces on the pan with the marinade and let half of it evaporate to thicken the sauce and served it over rice. Yum!!! Read More

Instead of pear juice we added half a can of sliced pineapples. It tenderizes the meat. Also we throw the sauce mixture into a blender including the onions. Just blend it all together then soak the meat in this blended mixture. Came out great! Read More

This was a real hit! I did substitute pineapple juice for the pear juice as one reviewer suggested. I also used an organic soy sauce (no MSG) and omitted the MSG. You don't need it as the dish is very flavorful and it's an excito-toxin. I will definitely be making this again. Read More
