    Chef #302958's Note:

    This recipe is nice and spicy. The version below has an average amount of chili in it, but if you are like us and love a bit of heat you can add another couple of spoons of Sambal Oelek. Better yet, go crazy with some Sriracha sauce or some fresh chilies. This recipe is adapted from an Australian Women's Weekly cookbook. UPDATE: Changed the cut of meat after the first review to make it more relevant to North America.

      Awesome recipe! This was easy to make and it tasted great! I am definitely saving this recipe to make again! I did not use the black bean sauce and i used regular soy not dark and still it was excellent.

      Fabulous recipe with great flavours! We don't like our dishes really hot so I cut back the sambal oelek to 1 1/2 tsp to be safe. It was very tasty & we agreed we could have handled it abit hotter. Increased the snow peas & used tenderloin for the flank, the rest we did as written. I can see making this recipe often, thank for sharing.
