This is a very spicy dish, if you prefer a milder taste, simply halve the quantities of coating. you can also serve this into warmed flatbreads or tortilla wraps.

Spicy, indeed, yet not intolerable. You could always decrease the amount of spices the first time you make this. The flavor was excellent. I added some minced garlic, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. I served this over rice. This would go wonderfully with chinese noodles, too. Thanx for sharing!

wonderful recipe! I am not a big beef eater, and dont really make it well. I never measure, so i eyed all the ingredients then cooked as directed. I thought it was a tad salty, so next time i wont add any additional salt, the soy sauce has enough. It was super yummy and not really spicy, but I love heat! I will most definitely be making again!
