Just finished making this dish about 30mins ago. I can't begin to explain how BLAND this is, or how dissappinted I am. I used all fresh ingredients from an asian grocery store in Seattle, so I know my ingredients were fine. I legitimately can't believe all of the reviews that are praising this. Instead of making this just heat up a can of beef stew, because you can't taste any of the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, or green onion.

This soup is so light and absolutely wonderful. I cut back on the brown sugar to just a pinch. for us it was perfect. I also used ground beef instead of stew meat. Only because that's what I had on hand. Its rich and very satisfying. Forget the cup, grab a bowl its that wonderful. I highly recommend this one. VFEditor *

Super yummy! A tad too sweet for our tastes, can't wait to make it again but I would cut down the brown sugar to 2T instead of 3

I made this recipe and my wife, who is not a big Asian food fan, and I loved it. I did put in a little more water while it was simmering.Dr. Wayne G, Arizona
