    This was so easy to make, and the flavor was incredible! My husband raved for hours afterward and made me promise to put it in our regular rotation of menu items! The only thing I did differently was to add julienned carrots, mushrooms, onions and bean sprouts so it was a one bowl meal.

    This was great (not that I've come to expect anything but from Miller!!) I had forgotten to get Sherry, so had to make it without -- it was still great! Will definitely make sure I have sherry next time. Also, added toasted sesame seeds at the end. Again -- Thanks Miller! I've never made one of your recipes and not thoroughly enjoyed the outcome!

    I am always on the lookout for new stirfry recipes, and this one will become a regular for me. Since I had a cut of beef that I felt required some marinating, I prepared the sauce, then drizzled a small amount of that onto the sliced beef. Then, to the beef, I added 1 tbsp of sherry vinegar; I let it marinate for approx 45 minutes, just long enough for the rice to cook. While my hubby set the table and put out the rice and steamed broccoli, I quickly stirfried the beef. The flavour of this dish was EXCELLENT. Many thanks for posting it!

    I *loved* this. It had an awesome flavor, with commonplace ingredients (a real bonus for a Chinese-style dish). I am not sure how soon I will get to make it again, since some of my family found it too spicy. Believe me, this makes me very sad.

    This is indeed a quick and flavorful meal. Loved the seasoning. I served it over rice as suggested. Noodles would work also i think. Thanks

    This was good!!! I used 1Tb flour instead of cornstarch. Omitted red pepper flakes and added 1ts paprika.

    Good recipe. I made this with snow peas and steamed rice, as recommended, and really enjoyed it. The only thing I did differently from the recipe was to use hot chili oil in place of the red pepper flakes. Next time I will probably increase the amount of sauce, probably by 50%.
