Reviews for Apricot Beef Stir-Fry
"I thought this was ok but not great. If I were to make it again I would use fresh veggies as the frozen ones got too mushy."
"This is definitely a make again meal. I was concerned it would be too bland or too sweet, but it was perfect. I didn't change anything about the recipe other than using low sodium soy sauce."
"Love this recipe. The combination of sweet and spicy is just right:)"
"My husband doesn't really care for stir fry but this recipe he could not quit telling how good it was."
"Really Simple and tastes delicious. It is even good as a leftover and reheats well."
"This was absolutely fabulous!!! I used fresh asparagus and mushrooms, and it came out divine!!! Will make again and again!!!!"
