Not bad! Ok, I know a stirfry should be a really basic thing, but I am still looking for a good sauce! For once, I was able to cook the beef so it was not chewy! Success! It was a little rare in some places, which should be ok, it’s steak after all…but maybe if I sliced the meat thinner I wouldn’t have to deal with it. I think that was my first dealing with “top round”, whatever that is, but I think I came out ahead.
I hadn’t cooked with ginger in a while, so the smell of it cooking with the garlic was absolutely amazing. Unfortunately the taste did not carry through to the flavor so much. The consistency of everything was great, but there was not so much flavor in the sauce—I think I like mine a bit sweeter. It just had soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, cornstarch. Hmm, did I skip something? The 5spice blend was used in marinating the meat, I think the sauce missed out in that it didn’t have any heartiness to it like that. I won’t complain about the results, I see much improvement!
