Oriental Beef with Ginger

Nita Clapper


I adopted this recipe and we really loved it! I used the following variations: Bok Choi leaves and stems; omitted the celery; used scallions; beef sirloin ; and Kwong Hung Seng Sauce (Black Soy Sauce) found at our local Asian Grocery.

Hope this is a hit for your family.
