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.
5 star - husband loves it. Slice snow peas in half crosswise for easier eating.
Fantastic!!! I had the butcher 'stir fry slice' the meat to cut down one more step. I might try it next time w/some curry paste in it to 'heat it up' a little. Thanks for sharing!
Quick, easy, and delicious. What more can you want? Ok, maybe a bit more garlic.
