    I just made this recipe because I needed to use up some steak and happened to have all of the ingredients in my fridge and all I can say is WOW! My husband couldn’t stop eating and even my toddlers ate it. I doubled all of the ingredients except for the salt since I ran out of light soy sauce and had only the regular left and also left out the fresh herbs since I didn’t have those in hand. I also did substitute the tobasco for some sweet chili sauce, didn’t have any either. I served this with rice noodles and we couldn’t get enough! Thanks so much for sharing this, your blog is an excellent resource and inspiration especially for those times when I am lacking it. I haven’t once been disappointed with any recipe of yours. This was so simple and quick to make, I will have to make this again and very soon! :))
