Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, combine marmalade, teriyaki sauce, the water, ginger and crushed red pepper; set aside. Cook spaghetti according to package directions.

  • Meanwhile, coat a large nonstick skillet or wok with cooking spray. Preheat over medium-high heat. Add broccoli and red onion to hot skillet. Cover and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add carrots; cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Remove vegetables from skillet.

  • Add oil to the same skillet. Add beef strips. Cook and stir over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly pink in center. Return vegetables to skillet along with sauce and cabbage. Cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through and cabbage is just wilted.

  • Serve immediately over the hot cooked spaghetti.


Tip: For easier slicing, partially freeze the steak before cutting it.
