Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This was good but it didn't have much flavor. I added a little bit of salt and pepper to my plate and it definitely made it better. The beef is also bland since it's not seasoned. But the sauce did thicken up nicely. I don't think I'll be making this again though. Submitted by:

I used beef stock vs. broth -- less salt. Submitted by:

Due to sodium watch, I used low-sodium beef broth and one tablespoon of soy. Will try other combinations of broth and soy to compare. Submitted by:

I have made this and omitted the rice! Saves lots of calories and no one noticed the difference - still delicious! Submitted by:

I have not tried it yet cooked this way, but if it is 452 cals. PER SERVING that is way too many cals for one part of a meal. How much would the rice or noodles then add up to for one dinner? i have tried it from buying it in the Chinese restaurant. Could it be so many calories per serving too? Submitted by:

Incredible!! Instead of the cornstarch, which could be a bit heavy on carbs, I made my own sauce and added potatoes, peas, and peppers as well. O loved it and will definitely be making it again! Submitted by:

I also added mushrooms and sugar snap peas. It was very good, but I think next time I will add more garlic and ginger. Still very delicious! Enjoyed it! Submitted by:

I enjoyed this meal! I will add mushrooms next time though. I did substitute the beef broth for a low sodium version and omitted the ginger but it was great! Submitted by:

The sodium and carbs are too much for me, so I make it for my family instead. I use sodium free broth instead and add slice green, red and yellow peppers along with some sliced mushrooms to bulk it up! Submitted by:

We really liked this, but truthfully found it a little 'bland' at first (but this could be because we used low sodium broth and soy sauce). Added a couple squirts of Siracha hot sauce, a little salt and pepper, and the flavor was fantastic! Will most likely make it again. Submitted by:

This was so easy to make as well as very tasty. I tweaked it making mine gluten free & sugar free. I used (Bragg) liquid aminos natural soy sauce gluten free and low sodium. I used agave instead of brown sugar. It came out great. Submitted by:
