None of the base ingredients are expensive, but the sauce doesn't do much for them.

15 Reviews for Beef & Cabbage Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce
I made this as the recipe called for except i used 1 tsp of sugar instead of 2, regular vinegar instead of rice and chunky Kraft peanut butter instead of smooth natural as thats all i had in the house. I did find it a little bland so I added soya sauce and some hot sauce on the plate and then my fiance and I both ate til we were so full it hurt! Its an excellent base recipe, just need to make some changes to suit you and your family. I think we'll make this again for sure and just add a little more soya and hot sauce to the sauce mixture and add some broccoli and pea pods to the veggies and half the cabbage.
This recipe is a great start, and with a few additions it's one of my favorites! I followed the recipe to a tee, then added some broccoli to the veggies, as well as some sriracha sauce to the peanut butter / OJ / soy sauce mixture. It was FANTASTIC like this - and made great leftovers! We had it over some couscous cooked in chicken broth because it's all I had in the house, and it went wonderfully : ) I'm making it again tonight for my parents, but with chicken instead of steak this time. I'm sure they'll love it as much as we do!
The dish is easy, one pot and quick to prepare. The cabbage and beef quantities are too much for the peanut sauce. It needs a lot of spice - chili flakes or rooster sauce and was simply unappealing on the plate.
I liked the dish, but my husband didn't. He said the sauce was too sweet and the meat didn't have enough flavor (he usually marinates everything). I thought it had flavor but agree with him that the sauce was a little sweet. I may try making it again without the sugar and marinating the beef before hand.
