I love the crunchiness that snow peas give this dish and I love the tender beef. The sauce is SO good and you’ll want to drizzle it all over rice.

It’s a giant bowl of comfort and going to be your new favorite way to have take out…but in ;)

Great amount, great thickness, but agreed that it's just too salty, even with the low sodium soy sauce. I'd decrease that next time and think it would be better.

I used 1 lb of beef, 12 oz of snow peas, and 1 whole onion, and still there was more sauce than needed, and even with low sodium soy sauce, far saltier than needed.

@Julie Chiou, I did. The sauce was just overpoweringly salty. It drowned out the flavors of the beef and snow peas.

So much flavour, excellent meal that I cooked last night. Changed it up and added some blanched broccoli, yue choy, some bean sprouts and sliced onion to veg mix. Cannot believe the flavour you get from the sauce. Also added a couple of dashes of worcheshire sauce. Definitely on the favourite list and will make again.
