Reviews for Asian Beef and Noodles
"My husband and I love this dinner. I use a blend of frozen broccolli, carrots, cauliflower, snow peas and water chestnuts, as well as, low sodium soy sauce to make it even more "Asian". At the end, after adding the ground beef, I also add about a cup (or more) of thin sliced yellow onion wedges and that really made it especially good."
"We loved this!!! so easy and tastes great. I used frozen teriyaki broccoli steamers and half a cup of frozen stir fry veggies since that is what I already had. It was great, and the leftovers tasted good as well."
"This recipe was easy. I did as another reviewer I added a 1/4 cup of Panda Express Teriyaki sauce and it was delish?"
"This was a great, super fast 5-ingredient fix. After a few bites, I realized it was missing a little something to put it over the top. I added about 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, and that was it! I didn't have any leftovers."
"Very good! I used beef broth instead of water and after the 3 minute simmer I added the beef back in and continued to simmer until all liquid was absorbed. Will definitely make again."
"I am not a big fan of ramen noodles, but this recipe used them well."
"Whole family loved! Few changes based on family preferences. Subbed veggie mix with steamed frozen broccoli and some fresh pea pods and mushrooms saut?ed in a little beef broth with some garlic and ginger. Otherwise followed as directed. Thanks for sharing! Definitely will make again."
"Quite tasty for a quickie! For some reason a number of folks comments indicate they are not thinking outside the box. I NEVER use the Ramen packet even when making the traditional noodle soup. A bit of garlic, some low sodium bouillon, and onions or onion powder yield the exact flavor without the chemicals or sodium. Likewise, I do not use pre-pared vegies as a rule. Chop up and add your favorite fresh items from the produce department. Voila!...the same recipe quickly adapted for restrictive low fat, low sodium diets! In addition, you can spice according to your own preferences and taste which I do with nearly all recipes."
"I always avoid prepared foods or the boxes variety. Prefer to to it all myself. This avoids a lot of salt and remanufactured foods which are not good for me. This is a quickie, but not my kind of quickie."
