Grilled Hoisin Beef

Rating: 4.58 stars
The (underrated) hoisin sauce is a thickened, fermented soy-sauce-like substance, flavored with chilies, garlic, vinegar, sugar, and, of course, exotic spices. It makes a great marinade. And unless you horribly overcook it, this skirt steak is juicy and tender.

Beef with Vegetables

Simple and delicious beef with mixed vegetables. You don't have to stick with these vegetables. Change them to your personal taste. Try serving over rice or noodles.

Chinese Pepper Steak

Rating: 4.61 stars
A delicious meal, served with boiled white rice, that's easy and made from items that I've already got in my cupboards! My mother clipped this recipe from somewhere and it became a specialty of mine; however, I've been unable to find the original source.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Stir-fried beef in a light gingery sauce. Serve over steamed rice or hot egg noodles.

Crispy Ginger Beef

Rating: 4.57 stars
This recipe is so much better than take out! Serve it with homemade fried rice or plain rice. If you like spicy, just add more chili pepper flakes!

Fun Karnal (Beef and Broccoli)

Rating: 4.14 stars
Instead of ordering out Chinese food, do it yourself. Great with white rice or sticky rice (jasmine rice). Family recipe! Substitute beef with 1/2-inch pieces chicken breast prepared the same as the beef above or 2 cups cooked shrimp prepared as above.

Crispy Orange Beef

Rating: 4.48 stars
A delicious crispy and sweet, yet mildly spiced beef stir-fry recipe. Great served with steamed rice and broccoli.

Spicy Beef Filet in Oyster Sauce

Rating: 4.09 stars
My good friend Lin gave me a recipe for beef in oyster sauce, I misread the amount of black pepper called for in her recipe, and the result was fantastic! I especially like the recipe because no soy sauce is used. My husband likes to eat them with the leftover sliced uncooked onion to bring out the sweetness of the oyster sauce.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Rating: 4.58 stars
This is a great-tasting recipe that is easy to prepare ahead and takes minutes to actually cook it! Serve with rice and veggie side for a nice family dinner!
