Reviews for Cashew Curried Beef
"Have made this with both steak and chicken thighs, sliced thin. I increased paste to 1 1/4 tbl. I also used cabbage instead of bok choy when I did the chicken thighs."
"I think I would try to add a few things....some garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, ginger? or peanut butter. I did add some broccoli and carrots and that was good."
