We liked this pretty good. The peppers and tomatoes were a very flavorful combination.
Fantastic dish. I used powdered garlic instead of crushed, it was really nice but I would say that crushed would probably be better. I learnt that make shore you don't overcook the beef. I nearly did but, I just saved it.
This was a pretty good recipe except it lacked that Chinese flavor that I was looking for. I made just a few changes when I made it again last night. first I omitted the wine completely. Then I only used 1 tablespoon of sugar. After I added the corn starch mixture, II added 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger and 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper. With these additions it tasted more like Chinese food from the restaurant.
