    One that our kids still demand when they come home from college! Just good old-fashioned comfort food, with a bit of a Chinese twist.

    1. 1
      Heat oil in Dutch Oven. Fry beef until brown. Add onions, garlic and ginger. Stir-Fry a few minutes. Add Soy Sauce, brown sugar, pepper and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 3 hours. Add more liquid, if needed. Just before serving, thicken with a small amount of flour or corn starch. Serve over rice or noodles.
    2. 2
      OPTIONAL: 30 minutes before serving, add 1/2 lb of vegetables. Mushrooms, green pepper, carrots and peas all work well.

      I loved this! I originally was trying to find new recipe to use up some round steak, and this is definitely a keeper. I was amazed at how tender the round steak was after the long cooking time. I've never used fresh ginger before, so I didn't know what size a "slice" was and was afraid of overdoing it. I ended up with two what I thought were small slices and it was great! I made a half batch (there are only two of us), but I kinda wish I'd made more. I added in carrots and green pepper near the end, too. I wish I'd had some mushrooms. I served this over "chicken fried rice" #58122, though I put a little less chicken in than called for. They were great together! Too bad I didn't have time to make some egg rolls.

      This was very good. I didn't add any oil, just used cooking spray to brown. And instead of using a dutch oven I just simmered the beef for about an hour. I added mushrooms and snow peas. I will make again soon!

      I was not sure about this when I decided to make it, but I was glad I did. Lots of flavor and very easy to prepare. Followed you directions and I did need to add more liquid, and just used a little beef stock and served over rice. Very nice dish Doug2. ;)
