Reviews for Orange Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry
"I followed this recipe exactly and I was sorely disappointed. The veggies and meat were great but the sauce was extremely bland!! My husband and son agreed and the rest of it that we didn't eat went directly into the garbage can. Boo."
"This is one of the best stir-fry recipes ever. The flavor is wonderful; it is even good re-heated."
"It made a hit with friends. I used mild saulsa instead of piccante sauce and added mushrooms. I also used light soy sauce."
