Reviews for Beef Broccoli Stir-Fry
"I have made this stir-fry a number of times because it is so good. I always add mushrooms. It is fast and easy."
"Yes, this recipe is a success! My version had bit of a chile pepper bite, not super hot, but noticeable, from one fresh red chile and a dash of Korean dry chile flakes. Since the beef and the vegetables are cooked separately, nothing was overdone.I notice in the comments that other people also used it as a jumping-off point for their own versions. Try any protein and vegetable combination, using the recipe to help calculate how much starch, soy sauce, and sugar to use."
