"I was a little disappointed with this recipe. There was nothing really wrong with the sandwiches; and I am planning to use the leftovers; there was just nothing really special about them. I may end up pouring some barbecue sauce over the meat tomorrow instead. One additional note; my cats loved the meat and went nuts over it! The rating is mine, the cats would have given 5 stars!"

"I made 1/3 of this recipe with stir fry beef strips. It had good flavor, so next time I'll make a full batch."
