Peanut Beef Stir-Fry

Peanut butter lends a subtle flavor to this no-fuss beef dish. For a change of pace, try ground beef. It’s always tasty over noodles. —Rita Reifenstein, Evans City, Pennsylvania.

    I quite liked this dish. I made it as-is per recipe. it had a pleasant peanutty flavor and a very nice consistency. I served it over white rice and thought it was delish. Hubby, on the other hand who is very traditional liking very average flavors was not a fan at all. I think he feels peanut buter belongs on the kids' plates at lunch...that's how he is. However if you like different flavors and like to try new things, this is the dish for you. Also, super easy to prepare.

    This was really good. I served it over rice with eggrolls on the side.

    This was easy and so good. I sprinkled crushed peanuts on top for some extra flavor and crunch.
