yes, it was a brown gravy but it was more spicy than sweet. . . .

The chicken dish was Kung Pao Chicken

The beef dish was most likely either Mongolian Beef or Szechuan Beef

well the beef onion dish is pretty easy. i eat it so much that i got sick of it. so you take steak. i use beef tenderloin and cut them into stripes. Take enough corn starch to sort of coat each stripe. mix around in a bowl with hands like your kneeding the dough for like 10 seconds. corn starch makes beef tender

chop onions and peppers i use about 1/2 an onion and 1 whole pepper

Heat a wok. with canola oil in it.

throw in the beef on high heat. mix around a lot for like 20 seconds. turn down to medium heat

add the onions and stir around. with a little soy sauce i use like 1 table spoon. add in peppers and cook until beef done add black pepper.

It's probably a hybrid version of Kung Pao/Cashew Nut Chicken. Traditionally, Kung Pao does not have broccoli, but Cashew Nut Chicken is not supposed to be spicy and does not have the chili peppers in them.

However, different places in China serve the same dish differently as well. In addition, different areas in North America have their Chinese population from different parts of China, so regionally, Chinese food differs depending on what part of the country you're in. Chinese food in LA will taste different from Chinese food in Vancouver and Honolulu, and so forth.
