The recipe in general is a good base. I made a 3 serving amount so halved everything but one thing I did do that's important is to switch out the beef broth for Dashi stock (yes, this is really hard to find/you usually have to go to an Asian Foods store to find it), the other is adding in 7 spice (It's got a good heat to it), 1/2 tsp of sesame oil, onion powder to your liking, ground ginger, added 1/2 tsp extra of brown sugar to kick the extra heat, 1 tbl extra soy sauce plus started off marinating the beef in a soy/water/rice vinegar mix for 30 min before frying the beef over high heat. Also sliced 1/2 of an onion and cooked it with the beef. Steamed broccoli and also a thinly sliced carrot separately while cooking the beef and onions. Put the sauce mix in after the beef browned and cooked over high for 2 min, then added in the steamed veggies. Cooked for a few more min over high heat until the sauce was barely visible. My boyfriend is Japanese and usually quite picky with food in general but he certainly enjoyed this. =3
