Reviews for Mexican Fiesta Steak Stir-Fry
"Excellent! Do not drain the peppers or the chilis... I think we are all 'trained' from making other recipes to do this but the extra juices help with the rice! Delish and VERY diabetes friendly, use brown rice instead for better 'diabetic' results... will DEFINITELY make this again!"
