    Love Wild Ginger and this dish is our favorite by far! I was so excited to try making this! So to start I hate dealing with lemongrass, so instead I used one drop of lemongrass essential oil. Everything else I followed exactly. 10 min or so before cooking the meat I tossed it in about a tablespoon of cornstarch, it helps tenderize the meat and also provides a barrier from the high heat, so it gets a great crust without overlooking it, and gives something for the hoisin to stick to. Its an absolutely amazing recipe! Thank you!

    Added cornstarch to the meat just before frying it.

    WOW! Wonderful recipe. Loved all the flavors and the meat was so tender. This is a very quick meal after the marinating time. We will have this one often. I did use a NY steak instead of flank.

    YUM! This is just like the meal at the restaurant! I made a few substitutions. I used really good meat...bought a serloin tip steak and sliced it SUPER thin. I don't like stringy, rubbery flank steak. I live in a rural area and could not find Chinese 5 spice powder so I used Indian masala because the ingredients were pretty much the same. I served it with delicious jasmine rice. The meal turned out PERFECT! I can't wait to make it again!
