Used my bumper crop of green beans to make this. Used sirloin steak and it ended up with a good tender consistency as well as a good flavor. Good recipe- thanks for sharing! Liked it a lot.

lovely stir fry, lots of flavour and we loved the veggies crunchy. very easy to put together, I used yellow wax beans and added some zucchini and carrots I wanted to use up. The touch of sherry added a lovely flavour and the sauce was delicious with a touch of ginger. Served it over some left over brown rice, I will be making this again, thanks for posting.

Very easy dinner to make! I doubled the sauce because I also double the amount of veggies ( I used green beans and some asparagus that needed to be cooked up). I would maybe boil the green beans a little longer, but that is just a personal preference, I don't like them crunchy!
