This is an easy dish to make, but to suit my tastes it needed a few changes. I followed the recipe the first time I made this - I would probably give it 3 stars - way too sweet as other readers mentioned. The second time I made this, I changed the sauce a bit. Since I wanted to add some vegetables to it, I made twice the amount of sauce with 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 4 cloves minced garlic, 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons sesame oil. Half of this was used for marinade, the other half reserved for later. I stirred 2 tablespoons cornstarch into 1/4 cup water till dissolved and added that to the reserved sauce. I stir-fried sliced green onions, red peppers, and mushrooms over medium-high heat a few minutes, then added the marinated beef strips and stir-fried till brown. Poured in the sauce and sesame seeds and cooked till the sauce thickened up a bit. Served this over steamed rice with steamed pea pods and asparagus on the side. Awesome! My husband said it tasted like he was at the local Chinese restaurant - but without all the MSG! This will probably be served at my house at least every other week - I love it! Next time, I may make it with a bag of frozen stir-fry veggies.
