    Turned out so well!!!!

    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

    It was great! The colors, smells, and even the sound of it cooking was a wonderful experience. Takes a bit longer for softness, but has delicious flavor regardless.
