It turned out great as always thanks for the recipe!

Just as good as Chinese takeout

This turned out very very good. I used London broil for the beef. I marinated the beef for 3 hours in the soy sauce marinade, leaving out the ginger and sherry. It was the perfect amount of savory and sweet. I pan fried the onion and broccoli in the beef broth rather than oil and let everything simmer together for about 5 minutes (or until liquid in to consistency of a sauce). Turned out perfect. Would definitely make again.

it was great, though i didnt add enough water
Rick S. 11 Aug
Turned out perfectly and enjoyed it thoroughly. Meat was tender with just a hint of soy and the vegetables were crisp. Delicious. Will make again.

Fulcher Jr. 8 Jun
Excellent. I added a tablespoon of hoisin to the sauce as well as matchstick carrots, mushrooms and watercress with the sprouts. The beef that I used was boneless short ribs, thinly sliced, tenderized,then marinated in beer and soy sauce overnight

Awesome. I was missing a couple ingredients but it was still tasty

Turned out great! I made one adjustment. I sauteed the broccoli a little prior to cooking the beef, removed it from the pan and added back in.

Absolutely full of flavor, on my favorite's list.

After reading some of the reviews, I changed this recipe. The amount of sugar suggested would upset the balance of the dish (as some reviewers said) so, not liking sweet dishes which are meant to be savoury, I omitted it entirely. The suggested cooking time for the beef cut so thinly is too much and I thought it would end up being tough and chewy. The vegetables (broccoli and onion) would take the longest time to cook so I started with them and about half way through I added the beef. Both finished perfectly cooked with the beef medium rare. I also added a seeded red chilli and the recommended black bean sauce. I used Chinese cooking wine instead of water in the sauce. (I marinated the beef in baking soda for 30 minutes which is what the Chinese restaurants do - it makes the beef super tender - called velvetting. Rinse off the baking soda before cooking. Might not be to everyone's taste, however.)

I was plesantly surprised on how tasty it was. Would make it again. Better then what you get at Chinese restaurant at half the price.
Cynthia 16 May
Very good and so easy!
Bob R. 15 May
Very good. My wife approved. I used flank steak cut in strips and it worked well. Prep for this dish takes a little while due to the sauce and number of ingredients. Grandpa Bob

I’ve made this several times. Yummy
Rosanne S. 1 Mar
Great! Definitely will make again. I did not change anything; I did serve with black bean garlic sauce .
Mamacita 28 Feb
This was not great. Much better beef and broccoli recipes out there. Too sweet and unrealistic cooking time for broccoli and onions, unless you overcook the beef or serve with onions and broccoli practically raw still.
Joseph Jonkman 18 Feb
This dish was so tasty and amazing!
Sam D. 4 Feb
Very tasty.. will make again!
Kanani L. 15 Jan
Very delicious, no leftovers,
Ryan Miller 8 Dec 2017
I agree with the other reviews, this is a bit sweet. I’ll probably just find a different recipe. It’s a bit saucey as well. I added two extra cups of broccoli even.
Katie W. 7 Nov 2017
great! used Splenda instead of Brown sugar. put some spice in it.
Jessica 20 Aug 2017
A little too sweet for my tastes. Definitely going to reduce the amount of brown sugar next time
Jess Keisler 31 Jul 2017
Really good and easy! Didn't have fresh garlic or ginger, so I used powdered for both and it still turned out great. Also substituted mushrooms for the bean sprouts. I used low sodium soy sauce which I think turned out for the best. Otherwise, it may have been too salty for my taste. Will definitely be cooking this again!
Ghjkk 20 Jul 2017
Yummy yum very tasty
Deborah S. 5 Jan 2017
Really delicious dish that is quick and easy to make. The only thing I would change is to reduce the brown sugar as is more sweet than necessary and to add some red pepper flakes or chili pepper to add another layer of flavor.
