Flavorful Beef Stir-Fry

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by librariangirl

Cooking time includes time to marinate beef. I combined the marinade from one recipe, the sauce from another, and the result is tender and tasty beef in this stir-fry.

I really enjoyed the marinade for this stir-fry, very simply and just the right amount, the beef wasn't dripping wet when it hit the pan, so it cooked up nicely. I did feel that the sauce needed a little more pizazz, but that is a personal prefernece. I added some garlic, a little more soy sauce, some ground ginger, and crushed red pepper flakes. I did use the optional 1/2 teaspoon of Chinese 5 Spice powder, but next time I would cut back to about 1/8-1/4 teaspoon. Will be making this again, thanks for sharing!
