    This was really delicious, better than I thought it would be. I added some cucumber because I got them in my Bountiful Basket. My husband and I agreed that this was a meal in itself!

    Made this for dinner last night, and both my husband and I LOVED it! Will definitely try mixing it up with some different veggies (mushrooms, snow peas, etc.) but it is a great, easy and delicious weeknight meal - Will most def be making it again :)

    Beautiful and colorful with lots of delicious vegetables. Easy to make. I used my wok and this recipe reminds that I should make stir-fry more often.

    The whole family loved it..i used green beans instead of broccoli,since 1 of my kids doesn't like it. Next time I have to double the recipe,since I have 2 teenage boys that play sports. It was delicious and very easy to make

    I doubled the meat and sauce and added some red bell pepper I had on hand. I also sprinkled some peanuts over top and added sriracha on top as well. Fast, easy stir-fry recipe that I will make again.

    Used quite a bit more vegetables. I flash-steamed veggies before adding to stir-fry because my 3 yr old doesn't like super-crisp veggies, but it made the vegetables a little too soggy. I'll try NOT cooking before the next time. I loved the flavor and didn't think the sauce was overpowering (like other reviewers did). I did use low sodium soy sauce so maybe that helped it not taste so salty. We served with Japanese white sauce and Sriracha

    Like all Asian dishes, this is easy to make and so delicious. We cooked all the ingredients in a wok since we tend to go to the wok when we see an Asian recipe. Excellent recipe and a great one if you are in a hurry!

    I agree with previous review; all I could taste was soy sauce. No one in my house liked it and ended up throwing it out....what waste:(

    I was excited to try this dish, but was disappointed with the end result. The flavor of the sauce is overwhelming; way too much soy sauce. All you taste when you eat this is the powerful, salty sauce. The simple delicious flavors of the beef and vegetables are completely lost. I watched my teen son (an Asian food fan) struggle to eat this; he has quite an appetite and an adventurous palate. I did follow the recipe to a T.

    So bland, will not ever make again. Had to douse it in Siracha to make it flavorful at all.

    Really good and healthy dish, even though I forgot to add the water. Leftovers seem to hold up well in the freezer.

    This was received well by everyone but the youngest in the family who hasn't really developed a soy sauce affection yet. The flavor was good and it is definitely a super fast meal to pull together. I just wish it had a bit more heat. Red pepper flakes would have been perfect.

    Easy prep. Sliced sirloin & let marinate while we got the veg ready to go. Recipe calls for chopped carrots, magazine shows typical diagonal slices, so prepped to photo. Increased broccoli by about another cup and subbed beef broth for water. Came together quickly, good weeknight supper.

    Really good, easy recipe. Like others, I thought it was a bit bland. Next time I will add some garlic chili sauce to give it a bit more zip.

    I'm confused by the people who said this was bland or conversely too salty. Subtle but lovely flavor, not too salty at all. I switched up the veggies a bit--red peppers are a great addition--and added garlic. Very tasty and we'll be making it regularly.

  • nataliedcoupe Posted: 01/12/14

    very good! I did double the sauce and added a few extra veggies.

  • laebrown Posted: 11/10/13

    Once I realized this was a 'kid-friendly' recipe, I knew I had to change a couple things to give it some seasoning. I still think the base of this is excellent, which is why I'm still giving it four stars. However, I seasoned the sirloin with salt and pepper prior to marinating it, and it comes out great if you cook it just to medium doneness. Well done really takes away from the overall dish. Also added 4 cloves of garlic to the marinade, and a couple heavy shakes of crushed red pepper to the steaming vegetables. Served over brown rice to give it some toothiness, and a tiny bit of siracha would give it some extra punch if that's what you're looking for. I'm positive that I'll be making this again. :-)

    Tasty, easy (especially after the veggies are chopped), and very nutritious! The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was that the sauce lacked a bit of depth that would make it superb. Maybe some additions to the sauce would help round it out. Nevertheless, it's a reliable weeknight stir-fry.
