3 Dragon’s Szechuan Steak

"This hot and spicy Asian inspired dish is really easy and it only takes 30 minutes to prepare. Want it really spicy? Double up on Chili Sauce and Red Pepper Flakes. This is a GREAT dish with cold sesame noodles."

    Delicious!! I've been craving this for a few days and decided to have it for lunch. I didn't have Szechwan sauce and preferred only an extra shake of pepper flakes. Sautéed meat in ghee and sesame oil then added marinade. Made a little fried rice and BAM! So satisfying!

    Delicious. DH can't do spicy so I skipped the pepper flakes and hot chili sauce. I sprinkled cayenne pepper on my own serving. Also changed the following in the sauce to hold down sodium: 1 T. light soy sauce, 1/2 tsp. szechuan sauce, 2 T. dry sherry, heaping T. hoisin. I think this would be good with some roasted cashews or peanuts thrown on top. Thanks for a delicious recipe. The skirt steak turned out very tender and flavorful.

    Very good. VERY spicy and easy to prepare. I make it with Flank steak cut into 2 inch strips with the grain then very thinly against the grain. Works great. Also add snap peas.......for more veggies.

    This was very very good, I doubled up on the chili sauce and red pepper flakes, and think I will add more next time. Thanks for the recipe and I will definately make it again! :)
