"An easy recipe and one of my family's favorites. For easy meat slicing, prefreeze the beef until almost frozen then slice. For more heat increase the chili flakes, this is great served over rice"

This is a really great tasting recipe! I cut the recipe in half to serve two and used 3/4 teaspoon chili and 1 teaspoon ginger. I cut back on was the oil I only used a spray of oil to fry the beef. Kitten this is a recipe to make over and over again.
