"This recipe is one of our family's favorites for special occasions, although it is relatively quick to prepare. To save time, I buy the broccoli & cauliflower pieces already prepared from the grocery store. I also substitute 1/2 tsp. ground ginger for the gingerroot. I also use round steak instead of flank steak because I need to double the recipe to feed my family of 8, plus my children's friends who appear whenever we are having this for supper!"
