The restaurant Wild Ginger is one of the reasons I moved to Seattle. I have never had a thing there that isn't outstanding. This dish is very flavorful!

My wife and I met as servers at the "Ginger". In my 12 years as a server/bartender 7 flavor beef is the only dish I craved after leaving a job. This recipe is spot on! I found it about a month ago and have had it twice a week since! Truly awesome thanks to the poster and to Rick (the ginger owner) and I can't forget Nathan ( the head magician @ WG). If you never have,you should go in and see them sometime. Possibly the worlds best restaraunt.
