Your rating: None Average: 4 (103 votes)

The subtly sweet peanut sauce blends deliciously in this beef, cabbage and carrot sauté. Spice up the dish with a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce. Serve with udon noodles.



READER'S COMMENT:
"We love this recipe. We prefer the "bite" of regular green cabbage sliced very thinly rather than Savoy. This has become a "go to" recipe for guests and is always a hit. We prefer it with noodles, too. "

Just needs a few additions...

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!

Easy and healthy

Too bland, unattractive dish

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.

Easy prep, no exotic ingredients

Split Decision

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.

Easy!

Thumbs up from the family

This was great. I used the slicing blade on my food processor for both the cabbage and carrots, so prepping the veggies took about 3 minutes. The carrots ended up as this coins as opposed to shreds, but they still cooked in the amount of time called for in the recipe. I put the beef in the freezer for 30 minutes as I prepped the veggies and sauce; waiting for it to chill was the longest part of the prep, but makes slicing it thin so much easier.

I used a non-stick pan so I did not need the additional water- I wanted the veggies crunchy, not steamed.

There was quite a bit of meat per serving in this recipe. If you're looking to cut calories or stretch out the servings, I'd say you could easily double the veggies and still have a hearty feeling meal. In fact, that's probably what I'd do next time, and make a little more sauce as well. As a side note, you do need a large pan- if you don't have a wok or a 12" sauté pan, you'll need to cook in batches.

Easy prep, quick, flavorful, filling

We love this recipe. We prefer the "bite" of regular green cabbage sliced very thinly rather than Savoy. This has become a "go to" recipe for guests and is always a hit. We prefer it with noodles, too.
