    I loved it. We loved it. I enjoyed the amount of sauce. I didn’t have the sprouts but didn’t miss them. I loved how easy this was. I used a tablespoon of ground ginger because I didn’t have fresh and I felt it worked fine. We were lazy and picked up the stir fry beef from the store. Made it quick and easy! Will be making this again!

    I used tamari instead of soy and added 2 tbsp of hoisin sauce. It was tasty, but I would have liked it a little thicker. But overall this is a tasty and fairly simple dish to make.

    It would have been better with mushrooms but it was still really tasty and surprisingly easy! Wish the black bean sauce was in the ingredient list - even as an “optional” - I bet that would have put it over the top! Next time!!

    This turned out very very good. I used London broil for the beef. I marinated the beef for 3 hours in the soy sauce marinade, leaving out the ginger and sherry. It was the perfect amount of savory and sweet. I pan fried the onion and broccoli in the beef broth rather than oil and let everything simmer together for about 5 minutes (or until liquid in to consistency of a sauce). Turned out perfect. Would definitely make again.

    Turned out perfectly and enjoyed it thoroughly. Meat was tender with just a hint of soy and the vegetables were crisp. Delicious. Will make again.

    Excellent. I added a tablespoon of hoisin to the sauce as well as matchstick carrots, mushrooms and watercress with the sprouts. The beef that I used was boneless short ribs, thinly sliced, tenderized,then marinated in beer and soy sauce overnight

    Turned out great! I made one adjustment. I sauteed the broccoli a little prior to cooking the beef, removed it from the pan and added back in.

    After reading some of the reviews, I changed this recipe. The amount of sugar suggested would upset the balance of the dish (as some reviewers said) so, not liking sweet dishes which are meant to be savoury, I omitted it entirely. The suggested cooking time for the beef cut so thinly is too much and I thought it would end up being tough and chewy. The vegetables (broccoli and onion) would take the longest time to cook so I started with them and about half way through I added the beef. Both finished perfectly cooked with the beef medium rare. I also added a seeded red chilli and the recommended black bean sauce. I used Chinese cooking wine instead of water in the sauce. (I marinated the beef in baking soda for 30 minutes which is what the Chinese restaurants do - it makes the beef super tender - called velvetting. Rinse off the baking soda before cooking. Might not be to everyone's taste, however.)

    I was plesantly surprised on how tasty it was. Would make it again. Better then what you get at Chinese restaurant at half the price.
