      I didn't have oyster sauce or water chestnuts in my pantry, but this recipe looked awesome , so I went out of my way to go to the store and buy those ingredients. I followed the recipe to the letter as I always do, so I can fairly rate the recipe. I am so happy I put the extra effort in to make this. It was AWESOME, my hubby loved it. Kudos to you for posting this. I will make again, and now I will forever keep oyster sauce and water chestnuts in my panty.

      Loved this. Did not have whole peppers, so used 1 Tbsp. dried flakes. Too much for the kids, but just right for me and the husband. We loved it and will have again. Also, I used 2 oranges, and it was very tasty. A nice hot dish for a cold night.

      We loved this. A wonderful pungency from the oranges gave this a great flavor. The beef turned out nice and crispy and the sauce was delicious. I think I used an orange too small for the recipe and we felt it could use more of the orange strips. This however, did not detract from the recipes appeal. Thank you!
