Reviews for Snow Peas & Beef Stir-Fry
"This was very good. I made the mistake of using regular soy sauce, it was very salty. I will switch to reduced-sodium next time. I made 3 slight changes: 2 packets of Splenda instead of sugar, switched out the 1 tablespoon of oil and used PAM to saute the mushrooms ad onions, and I used top round beef cubes, sliced in half. I also added crushed red pepper flakes to add some heat."
"Just loved this dish, served over brown rice"
"Excellent stir-fry recipe. Followed recipe as written. Beef tender; snow peas crisp. Highly recommend this recipe."
"This was super easy to make, but I agree with the "too salty" reviews. I was blown away by how salty it turned out. I will try again and use water instead of the sherry and see if that makes a difference. All in all, it came together quick and easy, and my kids loved it (aside from the salt), great way to sneak in veggies."
"Quick and easy! My family loved it!"
"This is very good. I double the liquids, so I have more juice for the rice. I also add broccoli and strips of red peppers. I leave out the mushrooms."
"Very good and easy to make"
"Very very tasty. I doubled the marinade because I usually like things saucy but it was totally unnecessary. This was easy and delicious . My husband enjoyed the crunch of the snow peas. I did marinade the meat for several hours, just because I had the time at lunchtime to do my dinner prep work. Can't wait to serve this again!"
"Don't understand Megan's deal with too salty..there is no added salt and your using low sodium soy sauce????"
"I'm sorry but it was way too salty for us. My husband is a salt freak and he couldn't even handle it. The first 2 bites were pure heaven and it tasted amazing. After the 3rd bite, it was starting to get too salty. The 4th bite, I about gagged. I wanted to love it so much and if it wasn't for the saltiness then it would've been an awesome dish!"
