    Turned out really well. I added green beans to it as well and doubled the sauce. Will make again.
    This is my go-to for a weekday stir fry. I substituted shrimps for the beef and used a variety of vegetables (peppers, carrots, broccoli, onion, mushrooms) and doubled the sauce mixture. Everyone loves this recipe.

    I made this with green beans and it was perfectly tasty. There was only huge heads of broccoli at the store and I hate waste. You could use a variety of vegetables with this sauce. Asian cooking is great because of all the vegetables. We loved it and will make it again.

    Fast and easy to make. Weirdly, I find that the broccoli was the most delicious part. Though the flavouring was a bit bland. I was in a citrus mood so I added some lemon juice for flavour (lime would have likely been a better option). I'll be sure to make this again, but will modify the recipe for improved taste.

    I will mention I did not have broccoli so I used some other vegetables. It doesn’t really matter though because all of them except for some of the mushrooms boiled away (the mushrooms were basically gone too). I read this recipe and felt it was relatively straightforward. When I began to make it though it completely fell apart. Moving the meat and vegetables back and forth and adding oils to the pan at various points became so confusing I finally gave up. I am also is worried that this meat is not fully cooked and may make me sick. I felt I had to leave it on the heat because I was concerned the meat wasn’t cooked so I tried my best to follow the steps in the recipe and I thought I did, but as you can see from the photos, it came out as one big, black, burned, sticky, colossal disaster. The sauce turned black very quickly. Also, it tastes AWFUL!!! I have undercooked meat, overly cooked vegetables, together in a burned, sweet, caramel soup. If I wasn’t so broke I would feed this garbage to a dog but unfortunately I have to eat it and also save some for tomorrow. I honestly thought this recipe was easy to follow and straight forward. It is not. Unless you have a lot of skill and confidence, I would not attempt this. You may end up like me with hours of cleaning and barely edible food.

    Very good but a little bland, I added chili flakes and peppers as well as other seasonings. I also added stir fry noodles!

    I made a double batch think there would be left overs! Nope all gone 👌 Make sure you use salt reduced soy sauce otherwise very salty but still very yummy

    The corn starch made the meat and contents of pan very goopy, I would try a different way to tenderize the meat. Honestly this didn’t have much flavor, I had to spice it up soooo much just for it to taste good.

    Excellent! Made with chicken
    I usually dont like stir fry that much but i made this for my family and it blew my mind 10/10

    Pretty good, though the cornstarch/water mixture gave the beef a weird, gloppy coating. I would skip that step if I make again and see how it goes. Flavors were good. I used fresh ginger instead of powder.

    You could use any combination of meat and veggies with this and it’s still great! So quick and easy when I’m super hungry:) I did just veggies this time and it tasted delicious!

    The flavour was delicious as well as the meat being tender. I added onion to the dish which added to the flavour

    Came out pretty good. I’d maybe use a bit more pepper and use smaller broccoli. The broccoli I grabbed was giant.

    Turned out well! Would probably use some ground pepper when I make it next time. Quick and easy

    Sooooo good! I couldn’t find cornstarch in my supermarket (Australia) but regular flour worked just fine. I used flank steak which is really cheap and it was super tender.
    Really good! Would definitely recommend it to everyone

    Good but I would reduce ginger to 1/4 tsp. Very quick prep which was great
