“I found this in a 2007 issue of cooking light and finally got around to trying it. It was awesome!! I didn't use the fresh cilantro that is added at the end and I didn't really agree with their cook time of 2 minutes on the beef so I cooked mine until the outsides were no longer pink probably 6 to 8 minutes or so. I did find it a little bit saucy so I am personally going to lower the soy sauce by 1 tablespoon next time I make it but, it is definitely a keeper.”
