Cantonese Beef Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
This was an OK dish. I kind of agree with another reviewer in that it seems like the author started cooking a beef stew, and then half-way through decided to make it Asian. The beef stew meat seemed a little strange to us to be in a traditional Asian stir-fry dish. While the taste in the end wasn't bad, the beef stew-Asian stir-fry combo in one dish just didn't work for us. I probably wouldn't cook it again this way. I'd be more apt to use thin sliced steak and just do a stir-fry while keeping the other ingredients the same.

I made this exactly as written and found it to be very bland. Needs some jazzing up.

Despite sounding like an interesting recipe, this did not appeal to us in the end. It is like someone got an idea midway through preparing some stew, hey, let's toss in some water chestnuts and stir some oranges in right before serving it over rice and it'll be an Asian dish...not quite. There is no Asian flavoring (the ginger just disappears) and it looks like stew with oranges in it served over rice. Because the oranges are added right before serving, they taste canned and have no additional seasoning or flavor. On the bright side, I cooked the stew meat about 3.5 hours, and the beef was tender and good.

This is an absolutely delicious recipe, one of my favorites. I add fresh grated gingerroot, lots of minced garlic, and some oyster sauce. You can use any combo of veggies you like, I have added in red bell peppers, snow peas, and broccoli and that was good too. I like to stir in a little sesame oil at the end of cooking time and I like to add some crushed red pepper flakes for heat. I use regular soy sauce for this and works great. I serve it over jasmine rice, usually with egg rolls on the side. I have been making this for years, a great recipe and easy too!
