Made this with out marinating the meat. Used elk back strap and sweet peppers yellow and red cause that's what I had on hand. Missed where the wine was supposed to go in so put it in the marinade. Ended up adding water as the marinade hit the meat and veggies it needed more liquid. Over all adding water easy as can be.

Excellent. I followed the recipe. The kids LOVED the flavor of the meat! I made FEW changes...just adding veggies but didn't change anything of the original or flavor. I didn't have any green bell peppers on hand. AND...we are all trying to eat healthy...so I added fresh cut carrots and broccoli. I didn't add the reserved sauce because, to be honest, it didn't need it! What I did was just cook it all in all, or most, of the sauce and called it good. It was perfect and light over white rice. WILL do this again!

This is quick, easy and delicious! I always add a bag of frozen stir fry veggies as well. My husband requests this often and we've served to guests as well. It's a hit with everyone!
