We'd just harvested a mess of wax beans and decided to make this recipe with that substitution. Excellent meal: the sauce (used sambal oelek as the chili-garlic component) was excellent!
I increased the amount of beef by about .5 pound and decreased the sauce by about a 1/4. I think that all the sauce would have made it too saucy for my preference. Otherwise I left it alone. I really enjoyed this meal and thought the flavors really popped. Thanks for a flavorful and healthly meal.
If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. This is now my all time favourite stir-fry. I didn't have Lee Kum Kee sauce so I used Frank's hot sauce. It gives the stir fry a nice flavour with a little bite to it. I substituted the green beans for broccoli and may try it with asparagus next time. I also used jarred ginger puree and only put in 1 tsp. I also used up some left over steak from last nights dinner. This meal was sensational and I can't wait to make it again.
