    This was very good and easy to make. Only thing I did different was to double the sauce, but use half the tamari and soy sauce. The brand of soy sauce I have is pretty salty. Thanks for the recipe!

    This is absolutely delicious.

    Unfortunately our oven caught on fire and due to supply chain issues the replacement oven is oos. So I wound up frying it all. Started with the broccoli then the meat in batches. Once meat seared, combined all in the skillet then added the sauce. If I windup using this method again I'll reduce the sesame oil in the sauce because I used oil (combo veg/sesame) to fry the broccoli and meat.
