    I reduced the amount of soy sauce and sugar in the sauce and added onion flakes. I used tenderised steak and the meat was amazing in the sauce. Just the right amount of sauce to cover all the ingredients. I added mushroom and carrot to increase the veges and it came out perfect. Will definitely cook again

    It’s good, but it was way too much soy sauce. If I made it again, I would half the soy sauce and try adding a tbsp of oyster sauce to give it a bit more flavor.

    Overall taste was good! But the sauce never thickened up & there needed to be waaayyyy more noodles for it to be more authentic. Might try it again.

    Was really good. The family loved it. I used chicken broth that said no salt added, which was fine because the meal did not taste overly salty. I should have thought to reduce the amount of brown sugar. The noodles are sweet and I would have loved the salty sweet combo. Luckily the beef and the onions help balance it out. Next I might just get low sodium broth instead or no salt added or just reduce the amount of brown sugar. Great dish.

    All the boys in my family loved it. It does have a lot of salt. Only thing I did different was add less soy sauce if I make it again I will definitely use low sodium broth (I didn’t have that this time) and substitute water.

    We loved it. Even my 10 yr old did. I added a little more spice. So the sweet and spicy came thru great!

    My husband enjoyed it, but my 11 y/o son and I not as much. I used no-salt broth and low sodium soy sauce, so saltiness was not an issue. I added carrots and broccoli, which worked really well. I also reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. The sauce was really tasty. (My husband likes things more on the spicy side, so he did add a bit of Sriracha sauce to his portion) Even after watching videos on the proper way to cut flank steak against the grain, and an America’s Test Kitchen video suggesting pre-tenderizing with a small bit of baking soda and water, the meat was too chewy for my taste. I am admittedly very picky in that area. Perhaps I cooked it a bit too long? My husband was OK with it. Might try making it again someday with a different cut of beef.

    Everyone loved it! I added a bit if steak spice to the cornstarch and used some reduced sodium soy and some regular soy and found it to be just the right amount of salty, but other than that followed the recipe completely and it was great.

    Delicious recipe. Never used this cut of meat before and it was melt in your mouth! Great flavours, probably doesn’t need so much sugar. I used half what is listed.

    Omg so freaking good! I read some of the comments about it being too salty you’re too sweet so I added a little less sorry sauce and a little less brown sugar. It was delicious. Will definitely be making and again
