    littleturtle's Note:

    Easy and delicious. Curry is not traditionally a Chinese spice, but it adds a hint of exotic, subtle flavor to this dish. This can be a filling dinner for 2 on it's own or can be served as part of a multi-course Chinese-style dinner. It matches well with vegetables, especially string beans or broccoli.

      I didn't want to review this as I see I made a big mistake! A little embarrassing but I used rice wine vinegar instead of rice wine or sherry. No wonder I thought the vinegar was too strong. I will definately make again with the right ingredients. Thanks,

      My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. Next time, I will marinade the beef longer. Thanks!

      This was an excellent dish. I only changed a few things. I used chicken instead of beef only b/c I did not have any beef on hand. Then, b/c I did not have time to marinate the chicken, I poured the marinade over the chicken and baked it in the oven. I pulled the chicken apart into peices, and then followed the rest of the directions to a T. I also only used a little bit of corn oil instead of the 3 tbsp of peanut oil, and I also subbed corn oil for sesame oil, both times b/c I didn't have the type of oil the recipe called for. I also did not have any rice wine, so I used red wine, and I used McCormick curry powder. I also did not have dark soy sauce, so I used light. All in all, even with those few changes I think I stayed true to the recipe, and it was WONDERFUL. My husband went back for 2nds, which means it was a hit b/c he can be picky. I will definately get some beef next time I go grocery shopping, to try this recipe again the way it is printed. Thanks for posting such a great recipe.
