A really easy way to feed a crowd. I agree with the other reviewers, the flavor doesn't really pack a punch. I doubled the ginger, used black and white sesame seeds, added Siracha, and used sugar snap peas. It was acceptable and filling. Next time: more sesame oil, even more ginger, maybe some honey, and cornstarch, although the soupy sauce went well with rice.
I made this beef, and it worked well. It could still use an extra kick -- maybe some hot pepper sauce. I tossed it with whole wheat spaghetti, and my husband loved it. It was very quick and easy to pull together.
This is a very simple recipe. It lacks the usual complex flavors and depth I usually find in Fine Cooking. But, this is a great recipe for teaching kids to cook and introducing some different, more interesting flavors to children. I taught my niece to make the recipe and she loves it and it has become a favorite for their family. It's a great place to start with what might be different vegetables (snowpeas), different flavors (sesame seeds don't just come on hamburger buns and ginger is wonderful). AnneG
Good, not great. Seemed to need more salt / soy sauce.
