    Tried this for tonight's dinner and it was a hit with family! My husband and son is into this low carb diet and they ate just this, my 13, 8, and 3yr old ate this with rice and they love it! I tweaked it a little bit, i added 1 clove fresh minced garlic and 1 onion. I doubled the recipe since I have 1.5 lbs of sirloin and added fresh mushroom in it too. I also used half and half of fish sauce and oyster sauce. It turned out like something you'll eat at a Chinese restaurant.

    I decided to try this as a beef stir fry with a couple 16 oz. bags of frozen stir fry veggies that I had. I didn't have peanut oil or fresh ginger so, I used canola oil and ground ginger. I just mixed a teaspoon of ground ginger with the beef broth before adding it to the veggies. All in all this was really good and with a little tweaking I think it will be fantastic. Next time I think I'll add just a tad more ground ginger. It just needed a little more saltiness so I think a little more fish sauce or some soy sauce would take care of that. It was also a tad oily, so I'll cut the canola oil in half next time.
