    Sue Lau's Note:

    The trick to this is cutting the meat nice and thin while it is still a bit frozen. I like it hotter, I put an average amount of red peppers down in the recipe. If you like it mild, take them out.

    4. 4
      Cut celery, carrot, and green pepper into thin shreds; cut onion into thin slivers, and set aside.

      we had this last night for dinner. we loved it! i cut the veggies and marinated the meat in the morning, so it went very fast! in fact, my minute rice in the microwave took the longest! my meat marinated for about 6 hours. i loved the flavor!! i did add some serrano peppers and more ginger to the veggies. will make many more times!! this is a keeper! thanks, sue!

      I have made this stir fry several times and it's outstanding! It is definitely one of my all time favorite meals to make. May family raves over it! Thanks Sue L.

      I loved this stir fry. Cutting the beef while frozen is a brilliant trick. It gives the meat a really nice texture and I think I may do this for all my beef stir fries from now on. The marinade is full of flavour and the whole meal comes together very quickly, once you've chopped the veggies. It would be good for a dinner party because you could do most of the work ahead of time. The servings are generous. We cut the meat in half and also cut back on the veggies, as there are just two of us, and there was still enough for seconds.
