This is definitely our favorite stir-fry recipe. I do modify it a little, though, as follows: 1. I use stir-fry beef instead of round steak. It comes out much more tender. 2. I double the marinade, but put half in a separate container. This will be the sauce for the stir-fry veggies. 3. First, I put on the beef with its marinade, and let it cook until done. Then, I remove the beef, and add stir fry veggies and pineapple with the other batch of marinade sauce. Once those are crisp tender, I add the meat back in to warm it up, as well as the sesame seeds, and serve over rice or noodles. It's one of my favorite things to eat!!!



OUTSTANDING!!! My DH and kids were in utter heaven eating this meal! I, too, doubled the recipe, & doubled the marinade. Then cooked the meat quickly, removed it to large bowl while I stir fried fresh broccoli, julienned carrots and onion to tender-crisp, then added the beef back to the skillet and simmered it a little longer in the sauce, thickenening it with a small amount of cornstarch. This was a fantasic one-dish meal! THANKS!!!



I doubled the marinade, and replaced the vegetable oil with one and a half tablespoons of sesame oil so it's a lot less oily. Used half the marinade for the meat and marinated over 24 hours. Then I stir fried the meat for a few minutes, added broccoli and rehydrated dried shitake mushrooms, and the rest of the marinade. Covered and cooked til the broccoli was the way we like it, then added some cornstarch to thicken. My husband said, "You weren't expecting leftovers, were you?" (There are only two of us) Next time I would omit the sesame seeds, as the oil gave it plenty of sesame flavor and the actual seeds got lost in everything else I added. I know some people get upset when you change a recipe and review it the way you made it instead of the recipe, but we like what we like and this was easy and delicious to make the way you like it. Neither of us found this too sweet, but it if you don't like slightly sweet main dishes, you may want to cut the sugar a little.
