    Made this for my family tonight and hubby had three helpings! The only changes I made were to add sliced scallions and mushrooms. Delicious and very easy and quick to make!

    Excellent recipe. I cut the tenderloin into medallions and cooked to medium rare (pink in center because it's juicier that way). I also used fresh garlic and ginger and added some asparagus, pearl onions, mushrooms, and red bell pepper. Served over lo mein noodles. Will be making this again. Terrific meal served with Miyabi onion soup to start.

    I had no plans for dinner last night so I found this recipe and decided to make it. I used fresh vegetables and fresh ginger and garlic. I also reduced the sugar to 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar. I made it with coconut rice. It was amazing. I have added this to my repertoire of recipes and shall be making it from time to time. Thank you for the recipe.

    Normally I don't follow the recipes but today I did and my family loved it. I used a frozen bag of stir fried veggies and some sticky rice. A great easy Monday night dinner
