"Delicious, finally a really good beef stir fry recipe! I used beef tenderloin & didn't have sherry so subbed white wine, tablespoon of vinegar & 1 extra teaspoon of sugar."
"I marinated the steak longer than 15 min. and it was very tender. Also I added some celery. Very tasty."
"My meat wasn't very tender and I thought it needed more flavor."
"I sliced the meat very thin across the grain, and let it soak for at least an hour. I also added another clove of garlic, and some finely chopped fresh ginger. The meat was super tender. Next time I will add more garlic, and more ginger. It even satisfied our international host student from Beijing! It will go into our regular meal rotation."
"Very good flavor but salty. Next time I make it I'll see about balancing out the salt a bit more."
