    I don’t know where we went wrong, but the beef never really browned like I hoped and the flavors were Asian but didn’t feel like Chinese restaurant flavor. I’ll try again but I will probably leave out the ginger next time. And will likely marinate overnight.

    So good! My whole (picky family-of-7) ate every last bite, even though I doubled it.

    Great flavor but very salty... I used water instead of broth and cut the soy sauce in half and it was still too salty. And I love my salty foods so that says a lot.

    It turned out great. As an african American male trying to venture into different cultures of food to cook (as my SO doesn't cook and is caucasian) she doesnt try alot of non American foods. Rated 4/5 cause nothing in life is perfect and in sure if i stepped back i could find something to dislike about the dish but it was great nonetheless.

    I had to cook with sesame oil due to COVID shortage. I added some Thai style peanut sauce to the to the sauce mix to get that peanut flavor in there. Also, I went with white rice because I’m not a fan of brown rice. This was indeed the best ever beef and broccoli!! All I will change in the future is to double or triple the sauce quantity. Near the end, there was not as much sauce left to get that delicious flavor in the rice.

    Easy to make! Marinating the beef makes it so much tastier. I put a little less soy and oyster sauce so it wasn’t too salty.
