Asian Beef and Noodles

Asian beef recipes don't get much simpler. 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. —Laura Stenberg, Wyoming, Minnesota

    I've made this several times but always used either ground pork or diced pieces of pork. We love it and it goes together quickly.

    I have made this several times, great!!! We tried it with ground chicken and chicken ramen noodkes, just as good. I did add a little Kitchen Bouquet to the chicken when cooking to give it a different color than the n oodles. My family lives this. Thanks for sharung

    My family really liked this but I made some changes. I doubled it for my family. I used fresh ginger and used 1 Tbls Teriyaki Sauce and 4 Tbls Low Sodium Soy Sauce in place of some of the water. I also put the hamburger in with everything before it boiled.

    This is one of our family favorites. Even my wife--who is an extremely picky eater--loves it. I add snow peas and a bit of hosin or tamari sauce and teriyaki sauce to it in addition to the soy sauce. I also use ground chuck which tends to be 80% lean. Other than that I make it as directed.

    This is a recipe we return to's a great weeknight meal that we can tweak to fit our taste (certain veggies.) Our kids like it as much as we do! Can be doubled easily.

    We also used our own spices to adjust things to our taste, but it was a good base recipe and something very quick and simple to get on the dinner table in a hurry!

    I was somewhat afraid to make this dish due to the negative reviews, but I'm glad I did. However, I took heed to the comments regarding it being bland and bumped up the spices and took other's suggestions to make it better. The recipe was used as a base and I made it better using my own touches...isn't that what cooking is all about? Fresh ginger, chopped garlic, instead of frozen vegetables-fresh, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, beef bouillon, etc. Using the stated cooking method, this was a very tasty dish! I give it 4 1/2 stars! It will be made again in our home.

    I have made this at least 10 times since i found it. My son loves it. I make a doubt everytime. I add soy sauce because it does need move flavor.

    Very simple to make. Needs more seasoning.
