This is a new family favorite! Quick, easy, and colorful enough that my kids think it is a special dinner.
My husband and I both enjoyed this very much. I made only half the recipe using a small head of broccoli and a whole small summer squash,normally my husband does not care for peppers at all but he liked them in this.
I thought this was nothing special. It had no real flavor and the only thing you add is soy sauce. I also found 2 cups of water was too much. And this makes alot.
I have made this recipe twice and my picky teenager has already requested it again.
This was nothing special. For anyone who tries this I would highly recommend you saute the beef in one pan and the broccoli and carrots in another. The broccoli got to soft doing it the way the recipes states.
