This was pretty good, but sauce could have used a little heat, so next time I'll add some red peppers and a little less soy sauce. The only thing I did different was add julienned carrots and slivered almonds.
OMG!!! was great. made a few changes. Used last nites steak. fried fresh coin size carrots with the onions. used beef broth instead of water.used one tbsp of br. sugar. and used minute rice made with beef broth. And i let it simmer till broccoli was tender. (sorry don't like crisp veggie's). thought i had take out... it was deli sh!!!!! been a member for years. another great TOF winner.... :)
This smells just like what you get in a Chinese restaurant! It was fast, easy, and YUM! I double the amount of sauce because we all like sauce. I also didn't have fresh broccoli, so I used some I had in the freezer and it worked just fine. We will be having this again!
My family really loved the sauce!! So next time I'll double the sauce. Another note use the fajita beef. You can get your local butcher to cut it for you. It's the right size and tender.
Hello! I too used Splenda brown sugar to lower the carb count. I added an additional TBSP of cornstarch since I made more beef than the recipe called for. After the meat cooked, I threw in the onions before the broccoli to give the onions time to carmelize somewhat. My co-workers absolutely loved this dish! I will be making this for them again!!
