    SandwichQueen's Note:

    This is a culmination of spinoffs from several different recipes. They were so yummy, I had to write it down. It looks long, but that's mostly marinating time and cutting-up vegetables (which you can do while the meat is marinating and the rice is cooking), so you can easily do everything in about an hour or so. An impressive appetizer or wonderful light dinner. Even my anti-vegetable 6-year-old ate them! So after receiving my first review about not using marinades, I looked into the matter and have changed the recipe so that you discard the marinade and use fresh marinade when cooking the meat. Thanks to my learn something new every day!

      As written, I found there to be a lot of salt - I substituted crushed garlic for the garlic salt (the soy sauce provided more than enough salt). Also, NEVER use leftover marinade as a sauce. I doubled the marinade recipe and only used half of it to marinate the meat (which I did all day in the refrigerator). The flavor of the meat was fantastic. I really loved the idea of all the veggies and serving it in lettuce wraps, but it didn't work well with the kids. I omitted the lettuce and put the cucumber and carrots on the side. All the extra ingredients really make this recipe go a long way.
