    I made some standard variations on this, and it turned out well. Sesame oil for Olive, some extra veggies, and used less steak, but it was strip loin. I use a chinese five spice powder in lots of my stirfrys, and this one also got some lemon juice. Was a good base to work from though, thanks! - 10/10/08

    I agree that fresh ginger makes a world of difference and I, too, added a smidge of sesame oil for flavor, but it has a low smoking point and I don't use it for frying. - 11/8/07

    This was good, but I'll admit I didn't have any fresh ginger so used ground, dried ginger. And I used Lite Soy Sauce. I loved the veggie part of this, but not so much the round steak--no flavor (prefer flank steak). I added salt (which it's clear you tried to avoid) and, to me, it was much better. - 7/9/07

    Pretty bland. Cooking times led to mushy onions. I used venison tenderloin. I won't add the cornstarch next time. - 6/24/09

    Don't forget to add some pea pods to this dish or substitute any or all of the veggies with them. You can purchase frozen pea pods for stir frying. Less veggie prep for this recipe for those who are in a time crunch. - 5/11/08

    this looks good. Maybe I can substitute chicken or add some shrimp. Baby corns are always good in stir fry, as well as broccoli and carrots. - 5/11/08
