Reviews for Gingered Beef and Red Peppers Stir Fry
"I used a frozen 24 oz. bag of stir-fry Asian style vegetables and followed the directions on the bag for cooking the vegetables. I also used ground ginger so that flavor was not as pronounced. I enjoyed it and would like to try it again with fresh ginger."
"this a very quick way to put a fancy delicious dinner on the table and get vegetables into a husband at the same time"
"Tastey! I didn't have snap peas so I used 1/2 a yellow onion & peas instead."
"This is a delicious and easy recipe that my family loves. I usually make way more than the recipe calls for and there are NEVER and leftovers. It's a great alternative to calling ahead for Chinese take-out."
"made this for dinner last night, omg this was soooo good!! next time when I make this I'm going to add water chestnuts and broccoli and triple the sauce to put over the rice. Very fast recipe to throw together."
