This has been a favorite for years. Did not include marinating time in prep time. If you do not like too much spice, cut back on the cayenne pepper.

This was an absolutely awesome recipe!! I made it for company and everyone just raved. I used 2 heaping tsps. of cayenne. That makes it pleasantly hot but we like hot and spicy food so we loved it. In addition, I used flank steak,and left it in the marinade for 4 hours.It was as tender as it can be. I also added some snow peas and some julienned yellow pepper. I will be making this over and over again. Thank you so much for posting it.

This was excellent. My husband I both thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely make this again!

I haven't tried the recipe yet, I'm a little confused of what soy sauce to use light or dark.what oil to use. Green onions? Cups of celery and carrots, I know it's a measure, first time I've used cups to measure veg.
