Chinese beef


A delicious family dinner recipe. My Grandmother served it on special occasions, but it's just as good for weeknight dinners as well. My Dad's favorite meal served over rice with salad and bread.

I have tried using garlic powder instead of garlic salt in this recipe and it hasn't worked for me.
