Fantastic! Added garlic and ginger to marinade with the beef. Out of corn starch to make a slurry, so just used beef and veggie cooking juices as a sauce (did drain a bit). Hoping for leftovers, but family licked skillet clean. Will use broth and corn starch next time, as family did not eat as much rice without a sauce! Thanks so much for the recipe! Super fast and easy and family hit!

Thank you for such a great recipe!! Really found easy to prepare and so tasty! Can really add whatever you like, water chestnuts, pea pods, etc., whatever you like!

This is super easy, super quick, and best of all -- super delicious! Changes: only used one small tomato as the Husband Unit does not care for them. Added 1/2 tsp of ground ginger as well. Served with basmati rice. Next time I might throw in some carrot shreds, or pea pods, or sprouts, or who knows!? I really like recipes like this that are so versatile; thanks for sharing it, Billie.

Very nice recipe. I wasn't sure if i'd like the tomatoes, but they took on a stewed, steamed quality that tasted really good. Will definitely make this again.

The steak was so tender and the peppers, mushroom and onion sauce was great over mashed potatoes!

The only thing I did different was add 2 tbs of brown sugar and with the fresh gingerroot I added grounded ginger. This recipe is delicious, I will add it to my recipe box. I served with marinade cumcumbers and onions. For desert I used an instant pudding and the left over rice making a rice pudding. The entire dinner was less then 1/2 hr cooking.

This is really yummy! I don't use the tomatoes or mushrooms in mine, but I add sugar snap peas and saute with the peppers. I also increase the ginger to 1 tsp. Super easy to make.
