I have to admit that this is my 1st time ever cooking with fresh ginger! I've used ground ginger many times but I decided to venture out and try fresh ginger! The smell in the kitchen after I peeled and sliced it was wonderful! It has it's own very unique smell!
This made a nice amount of sauce and it was very good! We don't like our veggies crunchy so that's why the cooking time is a little longer than some may like so adjust accordingly!
Now I would put the Sesame Noodles up against any chinese restaurant because they were out of this world good but I can't seem to put my finger on the heartbeat of the chinese dishes! Don't get me wrong, this was very good but the taste just wasn't like a chinese restaurant would make! They must have a super secret for their way of making dishes! I have made General Tso and Black Pepper Chicken which were delicious but I used bottled sauces from Trader Joe's! Anyway, my family liked it and ate it! My DH added soy sauce to his and raved over it!
You can use a variety of beef in this recipe such as ribeye, sirloin or strip steaks.
