    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    I believe this is from the Yan Can Cookbook that I borrowed from my sister-in-law years ago. This is a flavorful and colorful combination. I think I may have added more soy sauce during the cooking process when I made this, so naturally, make the necessary adjustments to suit your family. It would probably be good with a little heat added to it (crushed red pepper or chiles maybe) Prep time includes 2 hours for marination.

      Excellent quick weekday meal! I used London Broil instead of flank steak which worked well. The only difference I made in the recipe was to not cook all the pink out of the beef, just because that's the way we like it! I think the addition of red pepper flakes is a great idea and will try that next time we make it. Also maybe some mushrooms. A definite keeper. Thanks for sharing!

      Yum, we loved this. I also doubled the sauce and added red pepper flakes as it wasn't quite spicy enough for us. Also toasted some cashews to sprinkle over the top. I'm not keen on carrots so instead used an onion. Keeper for our family.
