Martha -- this was a tasty and easy dish that really pleased the picky eater in our family -- one we will definitely have again. Easy on the budget, too! I do think the amount of cornstarch may be a little high -- when I added it, my beef mixture turned into a clump, and I could really taste the cornstarch -- so I thinned it back out with some additional soy sauce & water.
