    This was really good. Here were my modifications: I added a red bell pepper, a sliced onion, and about 4 cloves of garlic along with the bell pepper. I used 2 15 oz cans of whole tomatoes, and cut up the tomatoes myself. I only added 1-1/3 cup of water along with the bullion, and used 3 TBS of the cornstarch. I used about 1/3 tsp of ground ginger as we are not real crazy about this spice. It sure made a lot, and it was really really good. As others said, the next day it was even better with the melding of the flavors. The only thing is that next time, I will use a more tender cut of steak (vs the london broil which I used). The meat was kind of tough. But the flavor was excellent!!!! Good find.  -  01 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made one adjust in this recipe I used one can of Italian diced tomatoes and one regular I normal don’t like to change a recipe until the second time I make it but I ran short in my pantry and made do with what I had (to lazy to run down to the store). That being said this dish was quick easy and very good. This is one of those that is easy to customize to ones own taste  -  22 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Why do people give recipes 4 stars when they change the recipe, if you change the recipe then it is your own fault if it doesn't turn out!!  -  02 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
