"Chinese food is a big hit with my family, so this stir-fry is popular at our house...especially when I put a little extra bite in it with the red pepper flakes," relates Debby Petersen of Niagara, Wisconsin. To make sure the steak is tender, cut it into thin strips across the grain.
“A butcher gave me great advice on cooking different types of meat," writes Karol Chandler-Ezell of Nacogdoches, Texas. "Marinating and broiling works really well on very lean cuts like this.” Karol suggests letting the steaks rest for a couple of minutes before serving to preserve moistness.
Dee Faulding of Santa Barbara, California brings zest to the meal with this recipe. The name couldn't be more fitting as skillet-cooked ribeyes get a burst of flavor from caramelized onions seasoned with black pepper, garlic and salt.

"This is one of my husband's favorite dishes," relates Carmen Edwards of Midland, Texas. "I like it because it has meat and vegetables, and the flavors work so well together. Sometimes we serve it over rice and add steamed asparagus or a salad for a great meal."
“My mom used to make this wonderful dish, and it's always been one that I love,“ writes Deanne Stephens from McMinnville, Oregon. “I especially like how the thick gravy drapes both the meat and the potatoes.”
