Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

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:

This was a really easy and great tasting recipe. Didn't really taste anything like an oriental dish, so maybe kick up the soy sauce just a little bit. I also used low sodium soy sauce so maybe that's why, but my family loved it. We didn't have any rice with this because it was so filling. Submitted by:

I actually didn't have the cornstarch or brown sugar so I substituted some tapioca for the cornstarch and just left the brown sugar off which didn't bother me because I don't really like a lot of "sweet". I'm more of a savory kind of girl. I served this over brown rice and It was really good. Submitted by:

I used low sodium beef broth & soy sauce. I used brown rice instead of white. Very good! Submitted by:

Made this for dinner tonight. Added a couple of mushrooms, fresh ginger and red pepper flakes. We all really liked it. My husband and grown son went back for seconds. Thanks for a tasty recipe with veggies and protein - 2 things I'm trying to eat more of! Submitted by:

Since round steak can be tough, I brown the meat and then simmer in the (low sodium) broth until tender (adding water if necessary) before continuing with the recipe. I also like to add the red peppers and mushrooms or whatever vegetables I have on hand. Submitted by:

no salt except the soy sauce, i can eat this. My salt intake has
gone nuts since my dieting began.

I would serve this over a stir fried broccoli slaw mix instead of the rice to lighten up the carbs. (Husband is diabetic can't have that many carbs at one meal) Thanks for the ideas, sounds really good Submitted by:

Thanks for the complete dinner calorie count, including the rice. This is so simple, and so good! That's the strangest broccoli in the photo. Perhaps spinach, cilantro or rabe were silently substituted for the florets? And is that minced green & yellow pepper not counted as garnish? And what is red? Submitted by:
