  • I would give this five stars if the recipe called for beef steak strips instead of ground beef. There are inexpensive and flavorfull cuts of beef steak that when cut into thin stips can be easily tenderized. And, also, do yourself a favor and add a teaspoon of shredded ginger or ginger paste. - 2/26/13

  • We liked this very much! The recipe is versatile in that other veggies can be added as well. The more garlic and black pepper the better in my book! - 5/6/10

  • 2 Tbsp of soy sauce was a bit too much. I made it with ground turkey instead of beef. Overall it was tasty. Would add more cabbage next time too. - 2/23/10

  • Amazing dish. It's light, it's a great way to get in a load of little one thought the 1tsp of pepper made it a bit spicy for her...but I just gave her a glass of milk and she survived it. Definitely will make it again. Thank you thank you! - 2/22/10

  • I loved this! I didn't use the oil or the garlic (I was out of garlic so I just used garlic salt instead) - I also substituted green pepper instead of the red pepper. It was so good. Tastes good alone or over brown rice.... - 6/3/09

  • I used fresh grated ginger root instead of soy sauce. And fresh cracked pepper instead of preground pepper. And I used beef flank sliced into slivers. All in all, a great recipe and great flavor. Thank you. - 5/19/09
