This colorful, economical stir-fry dish takes only five ingredients—all of which you're likely to have on hand. Serve with a dash of soy sauce and a side of pineapple slices. Or try ground turkey instead of beef! —Laura Stenberg, Wyoming, Minnesota

"I added a egg over easy at the end much like a traditional soup that is served I believe in Japan or China but I'm pretty sure it's Japan. It is so very good this way and when the yolk breaks just adds another depth of flavor you wouldn't think you could get fro package ramen in fact you don't even get a a hint that it is it's that yummy!!!"

"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."

"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."
