Good base recipe to use what you have

I thought this was a good base recipe. I doubled the sauce (as I do with most CL recipes), used pre-cut stir fry beef from the grocery store to save time, used pre-shredded carrot and added red pepper and bok choy to up the veggie count and increase the likelihood of left-overs :). Turned out great - my husband and 18 month old loved it.

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

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.

This was very good. Only changes I made were that I used left over beef which I put in at the end when I added the sauce. I also added about 1/4 tea of chili garlic sauce to the sauce - next time I might use a little more. The flavor was good, but not really spicy. Would be excellent as written if you don't like spice. I also use Trader Joe's jasmine brown rice instead of the instant. Next time I will add more broccoli - at least a cup, maybe 2. Mushrooms would be a good addition. I may use regular yellow onion, not sure why it called for red onion. I used a wok to cook it, stir-fried the veggies for a couple minutes before adding the water- then covered it for a couple of minutes. You do need water left in the pan for the sauce which thickens quite a bit.

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 :)

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.

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!
