Chinese Beef & Pea Pods

READY IN: 22mins
Top Review by Chicagopm

This was too salty for my tastes. Also, the sauce was very dark (molasses colored) - much darker than what I'm used to. I had to add more water to the cornstarch than the 2 T shown in the recipe (it was closer to 4 T) because it was so thick that I couldn't stir it. The addition of a little ginger made a nice flavor. The next time I make this I will go easier on the soy sauce.
