"Friday is Chinese night in our home, and this recipe is quick and just as good as take out. Double the soy sauce (reduced-sodium is a must! the regular was just way too salty) and ginger and add some julienned carrots or chopped red bell peppers for extra color. Sprinkle with sesame seeds for a professional presentation."
"I absolutely LOVE this recipe. I am using the Weight Watchers plan to lose weight, and this recipe helps me keep within my points without feeling like I am being deprived....I switched it up and used chicken and chicken broth instead of beef...and tossed in some mushrooms. Awesome!!!"
"This recipe is fantastic, even my picky eater loves it! The sauce is wonderful. I use frozen broccoli instead of fresh and it turns out perfect every time!"
