"No one would guess this elegant entree is a snap to prepare at the last minute," remarks Janis Plourde from Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario. "To save even more prep time, use frozen mixed veggies instead of fresh. Sometimes I substitute chicken, chicken bouillon and curry for the beef, beef bouillon and ginger."

"This was an absolutely delicious dish, tasted like it was straight from a restaurant. I also tried a small portion with turkey breast tenderloins and it was also a hit. I used low sodium soy sauce and added corn. Will definitely be using this recipe again"

"This recipe tastes just like Chinese food I order. It was yummy and I will be making it again. I do wish it had lower sodium so I'm trying to find a substitute for the soy sauce."

"This was a very flavorful dish! My house smelled like a gourmet kitchen while cooking this recipe. I would probably add some extra carrots and peppers next time, though."

"Absolutely one of the best dishes I have tasted. The only thing I did different was I added red and yellow peppers along with the green peppers and I added bamboo shoots. It was so easy and delicious. Would recommend anyone to try it"

"I loved this! I did buy the frozen bag of stir fry veggies and it came out delish! I just had to add some salt. I also mixed the rice in the pan with the veggies and meat to get the sauce all mixed in throughout."

"Very good, cooking the beef with the garlic and ginger really added flavor. I didn't have any fresh veggies, so I added frozen mixed veggies and scallions from the garden. Turned out very good, no leftovers."
