    a big success

    t t from ghana

    Great recipe if a bit salty - no need for corn starch in my opinion and I used red wine and it tasted great.

  •  Star(s)

    Came out Awesome on first try!!

    Maria Thomas from Bronx, NY

    Today was my first time trying this recipe and it was a hit. Everyone had second and when going for thirds there was disappointment through out the house. I will definitely be making this again.

    Really, Really Good

    Britney from Pittsburgh, PA

    I absolutely love this recipe. The taste is amazing. I definitely agree that a double-dose of soy sauce is necessary. I would also suggest to season the meat before cooking it with a little season salt and poultry seasoning. It turned out perfect!!!

  •  Star(s)

    delicious

    Kathleen from

    This is very simple to make and tastes wonderful. I use rice noodles instead of rice for a different twist. It has become a staple recipe in the house!

  •  Star(s)

    Better than take-out!

    sherry from

    This is really good! Easy to make! I add spices to the beef first before cooking it. I will definitely make this one again!

  •  Star(s)

    Great!

    Becca from

    I love this recipe! We make it often. It is super simple and the flavor is great. I highly recommend it.

  •  Star(s)

    just a little more

    Marko from

    greetings. Made this last night - it was nice however could do with some more flavour. I think i would make it again but perhaps add a bit more flavour to the sauce like some allspice or chilli. Otherwise it was an excellent base!

  •  Star(s)

    Easy and tasty

    Karina Bezerra from

    This recipe was somewhat easy to make. It was tasty; not too strong on the ginger, but enough flavors to mimic a lighter chinese dish. I added a little extra white wine at the end. Family approved. We will make it again soon.

  •  Star(s)

    Try this one

    Joanne from

    I was pleasantly surprised at just how good frozen vegetables can taste. This dish is full of flavor and really simple. I marinated the beef overnight and it turned out great

  •  Star(s)

    Quick, Easy, Good

    Kristen Pitts from Denver, CO

    This was as good as getting take out from a chinese restaurant. Definately would make again. I used more fresh veggies and they worked excellent. The sauce is a great base for variations. My kid loves veggies, such as broccoli, onions, mushrooms, as it is, so this is definately kid friendly.

  •  Star(s)

    Very good!

    Amber from Becker, MN

    This was easy to make and delicious. I've made this a few times with beef or chicken. My 2 little picky eaters enjoyed the chicken a bit better. This will be a regular dish at our house.

  •  Star(s)

    Excellent and Quick

    Katrina from North Little Rock AR

    I tried this recipe at the last minute. It was great, I used frozen veggies with asian noodles instead of the rice. I had to substitute a few items because I did not have them but it still came out great. This is definitely one that I will use again. Highly recommend.

  •  Star(s)

    A delicious alternative!

    Jessie from College Station, Texas

    My husband and I simply adore Chinese take-out, but of course it's not economical to order in all the time. So we are absolutely thrilled with this recipe! I used water instead of wine, and it was still incredibly flavorful. We definitely recommend this one!!!

  •  Star(s)

    Definitely Recommend

    Tiffany from Evansville, WI

    This recipe was excellent and I highly recommend it. I don't have a lot of time to cook and usually rely on ordering in or take-out for most of our meals, but I decided to try this one. This recipe was simple and fool-proof. My husband and I really enjoyed it and will definitely be making it again.

  •  Star(s)

    mmmm

    Desiree from

    I was looking for something to cook using round steak and came across this recipe. I didn't use wine or ginger and it still came out great. I am not a very good cook and usually screw up everything but my husband and my 1 yr old son LOVED IT! I would definitely recommend. It did take me a little longer to cook though, but I didn't mind.

    Beef and Vegetable Stir-Fry

    Nancy Cobile from Spotsylvania, VA

    I used broccoli, green peppers and onions and then completed the recipe as directed. My husband and I have cut back dramatically on carbs and neither of us missed this delicious dish not being served over rice!

  •  Star(s)

    Easy and delicious

    marie from CA

    Easy to fix- family loved it (so did I) I used all fresth veggies, carrots,caulif. broc., snow peas-will fix again-ENJOY!!

  •  Star(s)

    Good eating

    Adel from Houston

    I made this for dinner last night. My sister loved it so much she took the leftovers for lunch today. I added some crushed red pepper flakes to give it a little spice. I will definitely make this again.

    Mona from Sioux Lookout, ON CANADA

    This was quick and easy.

  •  Star(s)

    Great!!!

    Lizzie Tanreb from VA

    Great flavor and very easy to make. I used a stir fry vegetable mix with carrots onions and sugarsnap peas and it was very very good.

  •  Star(s)

    My Family Loved This!!!

    Mona Daignault from Sioux Lookut, Ontario CANADA

    I've tried all the Create-A-Meal stir-frys and enjoyed them, but my husband and 8 year old son really didn't like them. This recipe was quick and easy and got everyone's attention with the wonderful smells as it was cooking. I used the frozen vegetables and went completely by directions. I used brown rice instead of white which made it even better. Next time I'll use fresh veggies and maybe a few unsalted peanuts and that should put it right over the top. I'm adding this one to my Recipe Box furr shurr!

  •  Star(s)

    Scrumptious

    Azita Crerar from Macau

    The picture was beautiful. The reviews were wonderful. So I tried the recipe, and I don't regret it. I used fresh vegetables so it would be more in conformity with the picture. Thanks for a great recipe.

    eloise little from falmouth,cornwall

    I really liked this meal.I have 2 children,one is 2 and the other 7 weeks and to top it off I have 2 puppies,so to find a quick and easy meal like this that cooks in no time at all and is a real treat for the family is a real bargain.Also to buy the ingredients,it costs next to nothing.A GREAT MEAL!!

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy!

    Patricia G. from

    I like this recipe. I used the water instead of the white wine and didn't use green onion (I hate onions.) I also used white rice, because it's what I had. The meat was really tender and the vegetables flavorful, and the gravy just brought it all together. Plus it cooked in no time.

  •  Star(s)

    Couldn't get enough of this dish

    DenaMarie Picklesimer from Guam

    This dish was amazing. My husband looked at me as thought there just had to be more. My 4 year old never ate so much in one sitting. She never eats very much of anything...until now. Thanks for the great recipe!

  •  Star(s)

    Fine for Frozen

    Cindy from Bellingham, WA

    This is one of the better stir fry's I've had using frozen vegetables. However, I much prefer to cook with fresh produce. Using fresh veggies would probably bump this recipe up to a 5 star for me.

  •  Star(s)

    so good & simple

    Angie McDonell from

    My family and I really enjoyed this dish! It took almost no time to make and was full of flavor. My husband asked when we can have this one again. Thanks for all the great recipes!

  •  Star(s)

    Great taste

    Gloria Johnson from

    Was a great meal my husband and two boys just loved it.I though it was a great was to get all the vegtables in .A very easy meal to make did not take to long to make at all. Just a little more rice then we really needed.

  •  Star(s)

    Pretty Good But A Lot Of Work

    Tami from Oklahoma City

    The steak I think should've been cut into smaller strips. Had a good flavor, even though I couldn't find any ground ginger like the recipe called for. Not a quick meal to fix. Since I don't like spending a lot of time in the kitchen, I probably won't make it again.

    Beef and Vegetable Stir-Fry

    Lauren Smith from Pennsylvania

    This was a GREAT recipe. We made it with fresh zuchini, onions, carrots, and celery. In the picture it appears to have broccoli, which the recipe does not call for. When we added broccoli it didn't taste nearly as good, but is a good side dish. Enjoy!

  •  Star(s)

    Excellent

    Cathy Lee from Anacortes, WA

    Great recipe, easy and fast. I used fresh vegetables instead, tends to come out a bit crisper than the frozen.

    Kim Nugent from Newfoundland, canada

    Hi, this is a very good recipe, I enjoy to read the reviews, I would not change a thing only to use fresh vegetables if you have the time to prepare them.

    Terrific!

    Becky from Jacksonville, FL

    This recipe is so easy.. the result is outstanding! My hubby rarely labels a new recipe as a "do-over", but this one got 2 thumbs up. I'm picky about new recipes, but I had seconds of this one!

  •  Star(s)

    Good food

    lean from Sacramento, CA

    Made this for dinner last night. Everyone liked it but I would qualify it as a typical stir fry dish (thus the average rating). I added some red pepper to give it a little kick and used fresh veggies instead of frozen. Turned out pretty good, and having the leftovers for lunch today.

  •  Star(s)

    Awesome reciepe!

    Jeanne from Orange, CA

    Loved it!

    christy terry from Jasper, GA

    I'm trying to cook healthier for my family. This was a HIT! I used the frozen vegetables that had broccoli, red peppers, water chesnuts and snow peas. But I also added shredded carrots and sliced mushrooms. YUMMMMMY! Every bit of it was gone! My family has asked for it once a week.

  •  Star(s)

    You will love this!!

    Alvin and Renel from Queens,New York

    It is so easy to make,the best way to disguise veggies especially for people like me.My Honey loved it!I did add some mushroom and a little bit of sesame oil to lighten the flavor.The vegetables came out nice and crisp.

    The recipe is wonderful. It creates a well-balanced meal for our family, and we use all of our home grown vegetables and our farm-raised cattle to provide all the great nutrition for the family and friends.

    Pretty Darn Good!

    Mercedes Estevez from Bronx, NY

    This recipe is an excellent way to eat more veggies and protein. This was a great recipe overall. I used regular soy sauce (the only type I had on hand) which made it a little too salty. Today, I will be using the one it calls for so I am betting it is going to turn out excellent! I will keep you posted...

  •  Star(s)

    You have to try this!!

    Curt & Cindy Turner from Goose Creek, SC

    There is only one way to describe this meal. OUTSTANDING!! Especially over white or brown rice!!

    picture

    naomi from kennewick, WA

    THe other thing that i forgot to mention is that the picture shows brocolli and some other things-and in the recipe it does not call for these things

  •  Star(s)

    Watch the pepper

    naomi from kennewick, WA

    This dish was wonderful. My husband and I both agreed to not use as much pepper as it calls for due to spiciness. The kids could not eat it because of this-otherwise we loved it and will definetly serve this again
