Very good recipe. I made this for dinner tonight, and it was a huge hit. I did not use the water chestnuts because I didn't have any, but I'm sure they are quite good in the recipe. I did not find the instructions hard to follow at all. It was very easy to make. Thank you for a good stir fry recipe that I can add to my personal cookbook. I live in Houston, and need light, easy meals to cook during the summer. I will use this one often.

great recipe - very flavorful. I omitted water chestnuts as I don't care for them in savory dishes. Instead I added sliced onions (1/2 of a medium one). I sauteed the onions first before adding the beef and pepper. Instead of water, I added dashi stock instead. Very yummy and simple recipe. Thanks for posting. (Pick Your Chef Nov04)

Very nice. Made it for DH's packed lunch this morning. Cut and marinated the meat in the night itself. Did not add water or the cornflour as I wanted it dry. Finished off with oyster sauce as I did not have red wine vinegar. Omitted the water chestnuts too as did not find it in the market when I went shopping for ingredients. Served it in buttered bread topped with some lettuce and cheddar cheese and then topped with dill mustard. DH loved it said very good blend of tastes and flavours. Thank you for posting. :) Fay
