This is a nice, filling stir fry. When I make this I omit the mushrooms and use all three colors of the bell peppers instead of just one. Also if fresh asparagus is not available I have used frozen asparagus spears(thawed). Though it works out fine, not as good as fresh asparagus.

Only had 8 oz of sirloin, which I marinated in 1/4 cup Trader Ming's Soyaki, 1/8 cup OJ, 1/8 cup soy sauce, 1 tsp grated ginger & 1 tsp grated garlic. Very tender & flavorful. Sub'd pepper & mushrooms with 1 zuchinni & 1 pkg. of asian stir fry vegetables. Saved the marinade & brought it to a boil (safety) adding the water, soy sauce, bouillon & cornstarch. Coated the stir fry perfectly. Thanks for posting a keeper Christine! Your recipe was perfect, just had to tweak it with what I had and marinading the meat was a good addition.

I felt it needed a little flavor boost so instead of Soy sauce I added szechuan, a bit of garlic and some fresh ginger. This is personal taste and not a reflection on the recipe. The ingredients make an eye appealing colorful dish. I served it with noodles Thanks Christine for posting therecipe. 27 March 08 Made it again served with rice. added few frozen peas and 1 tsp pepper flakes (I do like spice)I really recommend this easy tasty recipe
