KID NOTE: Clean plates all around. Great meal for the kids.
VEGETARIAN TIP: Instead of beef, use 2 containers of extra firm tofu. Cut into 1”x3/4” slices and press between paper towels to remove excess water. Coat as directed and heat in batches. Be careful not to flip too soon or they will break apart.
GLUTEN FREE MODIFICATIONS: Use gluten free soy sauce and make your own hoisin sauce.
Made this tonight! Loved it! I will admit I cheated a little. I used microwaveable rice and a bag of steam able stir fry veggies. It was still awesome!
This turned out so yummy, but I would advise you to cut your veggies ahead of time! Even doing rice, marinade, veggies it took 1.5 to cook and prep. It’s worth it, but maybe I’ll buy a pack of fresh stir fry veggies next time!
And I personally did not care for the hoisin flavor, so I might just salt and pepper the meat and dredge next time.
Do you suggest any other meat than steak for this meal?
The sauce would be great on just about anything. But off the top of my head, I’d suggest either chicken, shrimp, or large pieces of firm white fish.
This dish was very good. I would add pineapple next time.
Loved this one. It reminds me of a dish I would get if I went out and ordered mongolian beef. The flavor was excellent. I would add water chestnuts next time if I made it again, just for the crunch.
This recipe was amazing! I will definitely make it again!
The whole family LOVED this meal!!! It tasted better than restaurant food, because I could eat it in my pj’s.
My husband says, “This was the best stir fry you’ve ever made.” And I have to agree. It was wonderful! The kids gobbled it all up. Zucchini and everything!
This was the best meal I have made from this website so far! People were fighting for seconds, I have three boys so I will double the recipe next time!
We loved this meal! Made it with brown rice got that cooking ahead and just kept warm. I cut the brown sugar in half. too (didn’t have low sodium soy sauce – that is a must – it tasted too salty otherwise). My kids also loved it which doesn’t always happen for a stir fry!
I make stir fry all the time but always use store bought stir fry sauce. Really enjoyed the change of using this homemade sauce! Sweeter than I expected, so if I make again will probably make less, but it was delicious with the beef and rice.
