      I loved the taste of this! I can see why it's so popular. I upped the beef to 1 lb-ish. It was a 'family steak' and I pounded the crud out of it before and after slicing into little bits. I used cooking sherry for the second ingredient. I may have used more than 2 tbsp of garlic, but more is better anyway. I had about 8 green onions and cut them a bit smaller. Once cooked, they disappear, so I should have kept them long. I was scared of red chilies, so I dropped in 5 red pepper flakes instead. I've never had spicy mongolian beef and knew the kids wouldn't eat it if it was hot. I will make this again, but I will double the recipe. This was just barely enough for the 4 of us (2 adults, 2 kids) with no 2nd helpings. We ended up adding a tossed salad to fill our plates. I served this with rice. The meifun noodles sound fun, though! Thanks for this great recipe!
