The meat was extremely tender. I have to say I've never cooked with dried chili peppers before, so I was scared and only used 3, but I will use the whole amount next time. Thanks Chia!!

Oh Chia, this was wonderful. I scaled it to three servings, and cooked gravy beef for two hours. I did everything as you said, except I added a little more garlic. The honey complemented the sweetness of the carrots. The spicyness was subtle. I forgot to add the soy sauce, but I think it would be better without. It certainly didn't need any seasoning. Oh and next time, I will slice the meat thinner.

Nice, subtle orange flavor, with a kick at the end! I thought this was very good, although the rest of my family did not care for it. Very easy to prepare. I did allow it to simmer for 2-3 hrs. and the meat was very tender. A nice change from our normal menu!
