This dish was really easy and only took about 20 minutes to make. I agree with all the previous reviewers, except that the dressing could have used some sweetness. I was expecting the kick from the serrano pepper, but I also expected something sweet. I might add some brown sugar next time.

This was so good and flavorful. Both my husband and I loved it. It's great if you really want some beef but are trying to limit it for calorie or health reasons.

Excellent flavor. I subbed bean sprouts and gourmet mushroom mix in place of the cucumber and cabbage. Great dish and easy to prepare.

Great flavor. My Asian chilli sauce is very spicy so I need to back off on how much to add next time. But it was still very good.

I wasn't quite as thrilled as others reviewing. I think I may have enjoyed grilled tenderloin instead of fried. Did really like the dressing!

I saved this recipe because I was interested in making the salad as a side. It was fantastic! I loved how flavorful it was, especially thanks to the fresh basil. I basically halved the recipe and eliminated the napa cabbage, so it was more like a slaw than a salad. I even at the leftovers the next day at lunch.

This turned out awesome! I love the orange flavor in the sauce!

We've made this several times & followed the recipe exactly, except we used a cheaper cut of meat: eye of round steak, although grass-fed & organic. It was easy & extremely good. It is spicy & the only sweetness comes from the mandarin oranges, both of which are pluses for us. (We love spicy food & neither of us cares for sweet main dishes.)

I can't give it 5 stars because I didn't make the beef this way (I used the maple and soy glazed flank steak recipe from CL and had wanted a nice salad with mandarins to go with it), but the salad was GREAT. The perfect balance of spicy and sweet, and so fresh. Made the red meat feel pretty guiltless. I would definitely make again. I actually made it for my mother at her place and she said it was the best thing I'd ever made for her. So. Pretty glowing reviews. Definite keeper.
