Easy & excellent. Every ingredient is key. Whole family loved it and all said they would prefer a tad more sauce (served over rice with steamed broccoli---broccoli was excellent accompaniment).
I loved loved loved this recipe! I went with sirloin steak as it was the best looking piece of beef at my store this weekend, I cooked it whole in a super hot pan and then let it sit, slicing it thin against the grain after it rested. And I replaced the peanuts with pine nuts because I was wrong when i thought I had peanuts in the house and I did want some kind of nut representation.
I put this in lettuce leaves and oh boy was it messy and oh boy, was it delicious! Husband thought it was very good as well so yippee! I get to cook this more :)
I used flap meat because I had to make do with what I had in the freezer. I seared the meat first, then took it out of the pan, let it rest and sliced it. This prevented overcooking (we like our beef rare) and worked fine in the recipe. Over all, this was terrific. I served it with Asian green onion cakes and a cucumber salad.
Excellent flavor, comes together quickly, and is great on a bed of lettuce. Would be easy to make after work. This one can stand on its own. I did like another reviewer's use of cucumbers. I did have to substitute ribeye steak for the tri-tip/tenderloin as I had it on hand.
Overall - quick, minimal ingredients, full flavored, flexible/forgiving, and plates beautifully
Yumm. Loved it. Served with noodles on a bed of lettuce and mint. I didn't have the problem with thickness although I didn't have any fish sauce so used oyster sauce instead so maybe its a bit thicker to start with.
This recipe is delicious! I'm not a very good cook and my kids are really picky eaters but this dish came out great. I didn't have to force my kids to eat it. They ate everything and wanted more. The only change I did was I added a little starch to the sauce to thicken it a little more since it still was a bit watery.
My family really enjoyed this. I served it withnlettuce cups to use for lettuce wraps and thinly sliced cucumber for a little more crunch. The meat was extremely tasty and overall a light and filling meal. I too added a small amount of cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it a bit.
Fast and tasty. I used a wok instead of a skillet and the result was fine. I would consider adding a touch of corn starch to the sauce too
Solid recipe, I was a little bit gun-shy with the amount of pepper (it seemed like way too much but I'm sure it's not!!), so I only used 1 tsp - but it wasn't overwhelming and added a nice punch to the recipe. Next time around I'll go with the full amount. Also for our next attempt, I will under-cook the meat in the first step - it wound up more well done than my husband or I prefer (however it wasn't an overly thick tri-tip to begin with). We added mushrooms - really good addition - and served it over brown rice. This recipe takes no time at all to put together and will be perfect for those nights when we're short on time.
