Just Average

Leave out the seseme Oil, try replacing it with like peanut or conola oil, it gave it a wierd taste and smell's horrible. Or try it replacing the oil with water. It was good but wouldn't ever use sesame oil again. If you wanted a pepper taste add more pepper or add some hot pepper.

Would make again...

I tried the Black Pepper Beef last night but made a few changes. First I used 1lb of steak, half of the bell pepper since we dont like it that much, added broccoli to the rice and doubled the marinade for the beef and doubled the sauce. Came out very goodsearved over the rice but make sure you cut your beef strips thin or it may come out too tough. Definately would make this again.
