Reviews for Curried Beef Stir-Fry
"Excellent! Our family really enjoyed this. I made a few additions; added cauliflower, carrots, broccoli, and sugar snap peas, and skipped the celery."
"best stir fry recipe i have ever made!! Used venison meat and it turned out excellent!! Plan on making for a future dinner party for friends!"
"This is my husband's favorite with a few variations. We use cut up boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of the beef. And Frozen peppers. I don't know how many times I have been asked for this recipe."
