Delicious Vietnamese Beef dish - best left overnight in fridge! Great on a fresh salad with the sauce as a dressing.

This is absolutely divine. DH & I are united in our five-star rating and give it the "restaurant quality" badge! Necessity being the mother of invention, I fiddled with three of the ingredients, and as I found the marinade to be so very full-bodied and ZAPPY, I made this into a full-blown meat-n-veg stir-fry! See my changes in a new recipe entree "Shaky Beef by DoubletheGarlic", but three cheers to Chef #491598 for this keeper!!
