The whole family enjoyed. I only made half the rice for the three of us. Next time I will add some green peppers or other vegetables and I might add a little more of the chile pepper. Also I didn't cook the tomatoes on high for 10 min. I only cooked them for a few minutes.

I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out. All in all, it was just ok, I guess. I recommend omitting the salt - the soup provides more than enough. I ended up adding a little V8 juice because it got a bit dry. I didn't have time to make rice so I just served it with some steamed broccoli and cauli. I won't be making it again, but thanks anyway!

Nice one. I made the recepe without the onion soup and it worked out great. I do recommend to use canned peeled tomatoes or peeld ripe fresh tomatoes, not any possible peplacements. The recepe combines beef and ginger, something barely found on this site. It's well balanced, and I'd recommend it with some full-bodied red. Thank you, Jennie

I enjoyed this dish. Browned the meat and sauteed the onion, garlic, seasonings, etc. in the same pan. Transferred everything to my slow cooker then added the soup, tomatoes and water. I also added snow peas and bell pepper (red & yellow) because I felt it needed veggies. Cooked on high for several hours & served with rice noodles. Hubby said it was good enough to eat again. Good thing because daughter and I LOVED it! :)

We really enjoyed this recipe. I only substituted a couple of things. Olive and sesame oil for the peanut oil and top round steak for the flank steak. It only took half an hour to cook. Will make again.

This is an excellent recipe. The flank steak was so tender it was falling apart. Will make this one of my regular recipes.

This was so easy yet still delicious! The ginger root I had only made about two and a half teaspoons of grated ginger... I can't wait to try it next time with the full amount! Yum.

This was absolutely divine. Took a while to make but it was well worth it. It was a snowy, wintery night when we had this and it warmed us all right up.
