it was very tasty, I will definitely make it again, and it's low in calories.

I substituted maple syrup for brown sugar and olive oil for vegetable oil. I also used super lean beef. All that and I think it was too dry. The flavor was delicious though! Will continue to play with this recipe to get it better next time.

Turned out really well. Added diced green peppers with green onions. Also, since the wife isn't crazy about spicy, left out the crushed red pepper and added some store bought Korean spicy sauce to my portion.

Excellent! Will definitely make it again. Modified by adding mushrooms to the beef and garlic to the quinoa.

Loved it! Quick and easy! I mistakenly used regular onions instead of green onions (thought they were the same. Noob mistake!) but it worked out fine. I sautéed the onions with the garlic & ginger and it came out fine. Definitely a fave!

We didn't have green onions or red pepper flakes substituted some sriracha and everyone LOVED it!! Can't wait to make this again!!

I liked the recipe, but added more spice - more ginger and a chopped fresh chili. Added stir-fried carrots, scallions and cabbage as well. Would make that again.
