    good flavor, the crushed red pepper gives it just the right amount of heat.

    Thanks to all for the reviews. We doubled the sauce ingredients. Added a couple of teaspoons of honey for balance. Thickened the sauce with a cornstarch slurry. Used leftover cooked beef roast. Did not have fresh red pepper so used some sliced roasted peppers right at the end. Served with organic brown basmati rice. Yum...

    This is really tasty. I happened to have all the ingredients at hand which was lucky. I'd go lighter on the fresh ground black pepper next time. I ground the pepper over the meat, but didn't measure and it had a definite pepper note. Not bad, just a bit more than expected. I added onions, which I cooked before adding the broccoli. I also added about three tablespoons of orange juice at the end, and like many others made a slurry of cornstarch and about a third cup water to make more of a sauce.

    This was a tasty relatively quick recipe that my family enjoyed. I was disappointed that it didn't turn out looking like the picture; the sauce in the picture looked more thick/sticky and mine was very thin. All of the cutting and prep takes some time - I did it while my brown rice was cooking. And I wasn't really sure how to cut the steak, the description wasn't very clear. But it turned out tasty and even my 14 month old son liked it.

    This is an all-time favorite for my family. I have been making it about once a month since the recipe came out in July 2009. We love it. I make it as-is, except I add one onion, cut into quarters. I probably add more garlic, too - I just kind of toss some in. The sauce is not thick, but the rice soaks it up and it is very flavorful.

    This was pretty easy, well-liked and was a nice way to get what is sometimes termed "bleccholi" down the gullets of some younger extended family members. Didn't do much different; cut back on the pepper =( for some Midwestern palates and used a little different cut of meat (danged if I remember what), but basically it just went together just as advertised and tasted good. Will make again. rg

    My family really liked this meal. It had a bit of spice that we are not used to, but loved, and it was so easy to make on a hot day. Easy + quick marinade, and the oyster sauce tasted really great (never used before). I steamed frozen broccoli with frozen sugar snaps + pepper mix and added as a side. I will definitely be making this easy meal again!

    This was an okay recipe, nothing spectacular. Instead of red pepper, I did water chestnut and also coated the steak in corn starch. If I didn't add some hot sauce before serving, it would have been kind of bland. Otherwise, this was an easy and quick recipe.

    This was pretty good although the sauce needed to be thickened so I took some sauce out and added Wondra to it and then reboiled it. Next time I will ad some green onions to it and more hot red peppers as I like hot and spicy. I will make this again.

    Great quick weeknight meal. I omitted using the brocolli stems since I'm not a fan and also cut the amount of red pepper in half since I'm not a fan of spice. I couldn't find flank steak, so I used the think cut beef round meat my supermarket had. It was on sale for only $2.50 per pound so this was a great low cost meal. The sauce was very tasty and I will making this meal again in the future.

    I agree with others. The sauce needed a cornstarch slurry. I added green onions in 1 inch chunks, and deleted the broccoli stems.

    This was a tasty recipe - liked the oyster sauce in it. My husband does not usually like stir fries because he finds they are most of the time too tarry, as he calls it. This one was not.

    the is a quick and delicious stir-fry. I doubled by sauce and added a little more water to cut the saltyness from the oyster sauce. I also thickened my sauce with about a tablespoon of cornstarch b4 adding to the pan.

    My husband decided to make this recipe himself. We didn't have oyster sauce but it was still delicious! This will be a repeat meal at our house!

    I made this tonight since I had some frozen stir beef thawing out already. I found this recipe since I had the ingredients on hand. It was easy to prepare and easy to follow the recipe although i saw a video prior to similar steps. Great flavor. You can never go wrong with Asian recipes for beef! I added white onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, some mini Asian Corn, broccoli, low sodium soy sauce, and some extra oyster sauce because i had lots of veggies. I made some home made baked spring rolls to go on the side Thanks for the quick and easy recipe! I will add this to my cookbook. Thanks for the calorie information too!

    This is a favorite at our house but we have made a few changes from the original recipe. I normally marinate the meat for several hours and add extra garlic in the marinade. I also add slices of white onion with the veggies and skip the broccoli stems. The sauce isn't thick but it has great flavor and we have never added corn starch.

    This is a very nice light alternative to chinese food.
