There's just enough ginger, chili powder and garlic powder in the sauce to spark the taste of this enjoyable steak specialty. For variety, you can substitute chicken or pork for the sirloin. If I'm in a hurry or don't have fresh vegetables on hand, I'll reach for two bags of frozen stir-fry vegetables instead.

"This is excellent! I used mushrooms instead of cauliflower and doubled the sauce to serve over rice. I also always season the meat with a bit of steak spice just to add extra flavor to the meat. Can't wait to try it again with snow peas or sugar snap peas and serve over noodles."

"Very good. I didn't have cauliflower so I omitted that and added red pepper, celery and bamboo shoots. Will definitely make again!"

"This recipe is fabulous! I made it for the first time for supper and wouldn't change a thing, except for adding green peppers, fresh garlic , and patty pan squash. The sauce goes perfectly with the veggies and makes a delicious and satisfying dish! My family loved it and I'm sure I'll be making this recipe over and over again!"

"The sauce is perfect with the right amount of veggies and meat. I cut back on the meat and add more veggies and you use whatever you have on hand. I've made 3 times in two weeks and this will definitely be the new base for my stir fries."
