Seasoned with just the right amount of ginger, this colorful and classic stir-fry is a quick favorite of Tracy Youngman in Post Falls, Idaho. “I got the recipe from my best friend after she made it for me years ago,“ Tracy recalls. “I loved it then…and still do!“

"Wow! This may have been the most delicious Asian stir-fry meal I've ever made from scratch! The sauce was *perfect." Just the right amount of ginger, and just the right consistency to cling to the meat, yet rich enough to even provide enough flavor to be served over rice. So good! My kids loved it. I used some London Broil that I cut into thin strips, and it was delicious. I did not pre-marinate...I just briefly let the meat sit with the sauce, and it pretty much soaked it right up so there was nothing to drain off from the bag. This was really wonderful, and I will definitely make it again!"
