Reviews forAsian Vegetable-Beef Soup
"Super yummy! A tad too sweet for our tastes, can't wait to make it again but I would cut down the brown sugar to 2T instead of 3"
"I made this the other night for my family and some guests, I doubled the recipe. It was delicious! Will definitely make again."
"I made this recipe and my wife, who is not a big Asian food fan, and I loved it. I did put in a little more water while it was simmering.Dr. Wayne G, Arizona"
"Very good. nice flavor. It disappeared quickly. It took a while to cook, but easy prep. now, what do I do with the rest of the bok choy?"
"This recipe has an excellent flavor! It's also quite filling with the rice. It's a keeper!!"
"Awesome asian flavor-my family loved it! Will make again!"
"This soup is AWESOME, have made it twice now and everyone loves it and wants recipe !!! Love it, it is different from other vegetable soups. Will become a standby recipe at our house :)"
"Excellent flavor. Definitely a keeper. We used Sirloin instead of stew meat and it was wonderful."
"So good and so easy! I didn't have bok choy, next time I will make sure I add it. I browned the stew meat and then put all ingredients, except the carrots and mushrooms, in the crockpot to continue to cook on high for 4 hours. The last 30 minutes I put in the carrots and then about 15 minutes later, the mushrooms. The meat was so tender. Served it over rice and my picky kids loved it!"
