A different tasty stir fry but I found it to be a bit too bland and added some garlic, ginger & 2 serrano peppers - I also added a carrot for color.

Very good blend of flavors. Take care not to overcook the cabbage because it will continue to cook with the meat and other vegetables.

Mmmmmmm... quite tasty. The combination of veggies was great. I thought the sauce was on the salty side and ended up adding a bit more broth and a bit of water. I was a bit wary of it's simplicity, but it was really good--- a teryaki type taste. My husband and I don't eat much beef, and I ususally make sauces like this with chicken stock, so it was a nice change of pace.
