  1. I cut the recipe in half - loved the flavor but felt it needed a bit more kick so added 3/4 tsp Chili Flakes (hey this is me and spicy not the recipe's fault). I am sorry I didn't have any sprouts but will next time I make this recipe. Thank-you for a super dinner Quail Trails
     
  2. Liked it. Spouse got seconds, adding salt only for the veggies. It did take me an hour to prep (my old nemesis). I would split the whole thing in half next time because of my smaller pan. I did substitute broccoli slaw for the sprouts because YUM.
     
  3. Definately a keeper! DW loved it and she's kinda fussy sometimes. Very tasty and easy to prepare; let meat marinate for a few hrs and that helped. Added a Tbs of honey, superb! Also added carrots and a stalk of celery. We like a little more sauce so next time will reduce to 1 Tbs cornstarch. Thanks QT.
     
  4. Delicious! I never knew orange could make beef taste so yummy! I used chicken broth in place of the sherry and forgot to add the ginger, but did add some pre-cooked carrots to the mix at the last minute. Made this for Pick A Chef '08. Keep posting healthy recipes Quail Trails! Thank you!
