Most Helpful

Agree with other reviews - this recipe does have a ton of potential - unfortunately, I think it means increasing the fat. i would use sesame oil to cook meat (also changing the cut) next time. I think it could be played with, but as is, won't probably be making again. Appreciate your posting, and always worth a try!

This wasn't orangey enough for us. It needs about 1/4 cup of orange zest. We also took the advice of another reviewer and used round steak.

This recipe has some real potential, especially for those watching their "points". The sauce is 5 star, it was fabulous. My only dissapointment was the meat. I love flank steak, but it was soooo tough in this recipe, maybe I'll try a different cut next time. I also can't imagine getting 4 servings from this, 2 servings max (but it is worth doubling!) Thanks ChipotleChick, the sauce on the recipe makes this recipe worth revisiting. (NB> I tried to freeze the left overs on this recipe, and it really didn't work ;()
