    HELPFUL TIPS AFTER MAKING THIS ALL MY LIFE: Being Asian, I love running into recipes that remind me of things I already make. The most important thing to take from these reviews is to DOUBLE THE SAUCE. My relatives would not want to eat any of these that have made this as is. ...just doesn't taste like anything you'd have at a good restaurant (as this is american chinese, not authentic). Doubling the sauce ingred. was just the right amount of sauce to accompany a side of rice. Don't overcook the steak. Frying until you get a nice brown color is the perfect way to tell if it's done & the estimate times on the recipe are pretty accurate assuming your slices are thin. Any mixture of veggies work (mushrooms, carrots, frozen peas, red peppers, sliced zucchini, water chestnuts) ...or just grabbing a frozen stir-fry bag of veggies. I add half a bag, and use the other half for the crispy orange chicken from this site that I also make when I'm making oriental food for guests. Red Wine VINEGAR is an acceptable substitution, but I'd encourage you to try more recipes on this site using rice vinegar!  -  23 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I hate reviews that change the recipe then rate the original one, TRY the original one and let us know. SO..I FOLLOWED THE RECIPE EXACTLY..AWESOME! My husband is not a stir-fry fan, HE IS NOW! "Since trying" the original recipe I have played with it, added zucchini, carrots, etc.. No matter what I add to it, it is ALWAYS A WINNER. This is MUST TRY. THIS is going into my KEEPER RECIPE file! Thanks for a GREAT "AS IS" RECIPE!!  -  08 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a great evening meal for the family in my opinion. I did alter the recipe some by adding canned slice mushrooms, water crescents, green onion, and baby corn to the veggies. I also used a snow pea stirfry veggie mix to get more of a variety of veggies (I love'em!). I used butter instead of cooking oil as well to add flavor. Since there were so many veggies, I doubled the sauce mixture and used garlic red wine vinegar in place of the rice wine since I couldn't find it at the store. Served over white rice with chow mein noodles over top. Delicious!  -  03 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
