I looked at this recipe and I can't wait to try it. Need to get some ingredients though. Tell us, did you stick to the recipe or make some changes and if so what? What kind of meat did you use?

I followed it exactly but I doubled it.

I just linked up my latest grocery post. I'm trying to spend $20/wk this month on groceries for my family of four (although the toddler and baby only really count as half a person food-wise!)

Anyway, I found you through WFMW.

I have to chim in on the Beef Broccoli recipe. I made it for dinner last night, FAN-TASTIC! I have tried making other chinese dishes at home to disappointments, this was so easy and so good.

I did make a few changes for ease and what I had on hand. I used flank steak and a bag of steam broccoli. I cooked the coated meat with the onions, then just threw in the steamed broccoli and the sauce. Let it simmer only a few minutes to thicken and wahla! Served over steamed jasmine rice. Definitely going into my recipe box. Thank you for sharing!!
