"Nice and real easy traditional Japanese Style food! These bowls can be of the Ziplock type or other freezer bowls and can be used as a meal for new neighbors, a sick friend or just for you. I found this on landolakes.com. Update 01/07/2008 I remade this and used peapods with less bamboo shoots, sliced red pepper strips with less water chestnuts, increased the garlic to 1 tsp, increased the green onions to 1/3-1/2 cup, and some crushed red pepper flakes, for that extra zing! Just a thought!"

"Really liked this recipe but felt it was missing something - it tasted a little flat to me. Ate 1/2 and the other 1/2 are in the freezer, waiting for the next busy day. Will make again but will play with it!"
"this is closer to real sukiyaki than many of the recipes here but it definitely needed the mirin that I added plus a dash of sesame oil. I used beef broth instead of the water and added minced garlic. I used some firm tofu and yam noodles. Very enjoyable. Thanks for posting. Ivy"
"Excellent. I substituted brown sugar & used about 1/4c of rice vinegar & cooking wine. Skipped the water chestnuts & used sweet red pepper instead. One of my favorite Japanese dishes."
"We enjoyed this. I would add more vegetables next time, maybe broccoli and peppers."
"Just wonderful! I made this for dinner tonight and am full up! I had to sadly not include the bean sprouts because I didn't have any time to get them, but this recipe was just great. My whole family really enjoyed it (Which is hard to come by..) and I'm sure I will make this again. I also gave some to my boyfriend who has been kind of sick lately and it really cheered him up ^^. Thanks so much for posting this. :)"
"Great recipe! I use canned mushrooms (personal preference) and omitted the bean sprouts. Good stirfry recipe. I did increase the garlic a lot and added some rice vinegar, again personal preference."
"This is a wonderfully versatile recipe. I used the vegetables that I wanted to use up, and the cut of beef can actually be of anything that you want to use. If there is one thing that I did different, it was the addition of a little mirin, just to make this more authentic. Very nice. Thank you for sharing."
"Excellent. I used just under 1 pound of beef and had to sub some of the veggies. I also used extra garlic and used cooking spray rather than butter or oil at the beginning. But this turned out flavorful and it's great that it doesn't use any less common ingredients. I served this with noodles (left over from another slightly Asian-flavored recipe) rather than rice and we really enjoyed it. Thanks!"
"The smell of this as it was cooking was enough to give it 5 stars. When I told my roommate that it came from a butter website, he was convinced I was trying to kill him, because it was "14 sticks of butter" good! :) I am so glad I stashed some in the freezer . . ."
"This was really quite good and easy to make. We found the sauce a little bit bland so I think I will increase the garlic and maybe add some pepper or Chinese Five Spice next time. I also increased the cornstarch and water at the end to make the sauce a little thicker. It was awesome though and did freeze well."
"This recipe is sooooo good, almost sinfully good. I made it for the first time last night for my family and it was devoured. I made it without many of the ingredients. No onions, bamboo shoots or bean sprouts and I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. It was incredibly yummy. Even my picky s-year-0ld loved it."
"This is a delicious meal. I used to make it all the time when I was married. Time to make it again! It freezes nicely also. I did one or two things differently. I added french style green beans, and on occasion, peapods instead of the bean sprouts. The water chestnuts are so crunchy, and the bamboo shoots seem to absorb the sauce, making them tastier than usual. Have you tried partially freezing the steak to make very thin cuts more easily? It really works. I haven't had this is a long time. Glad you posted it...going shopping tomorrow for steak! Lee "
