      This was delicious. I ended up marinating for maybe 2 hours and the beef was so tender. The sauce was perfect! Can't wait to make this again. Thanks!

      We truly enjoyed this recipe. I do agree that it looks more complicated than it really is. The sauce and the seasoning should definitely be prepped ahead of time. I followed this as written, but I omitted the bamboo shoots and instead I served it with sauteed broccoli and brown rice. I was hoping to get that thick, dark Mongolian sauce that I have had at PFChangs, but it came out a little runny. I believe that is because I did not drain the meat entirely. I was able to thicken it up with some cornstarch at the end, but I will definitely drain th meat better next time. I am so glad to have found this recipe on here. I have always wanted to make it! Thanks :)

      Used venison instead of beef. Awesome recipe. I added cashews in with the vegetables. I've eaten this at restaurants, but I think this was better. I also added curry, and crushed mustard. I'm always looking for good recipes for venison, and this one was one of the best.
