January/February 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (131 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. "

delicious - with some additions

This was quite tasty. I did it with chicken. Added some fish sauce and used crunchy peanut butter. All 3 adults liked it. Two of us added some Sirachi sauce. I apparently did not read the reviews or they were posted after I snagged it. I'd add broccoli as some suggested. Also thought some onion would give it a bit more punch. Possibly browned ahead, but chopped and mixed with cabbage would also work.

simple ingredients, easy prep

Sauce doesn't have depth

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

Base ingredients are good, and fairly inexpensive

Good Start, Needs Some Extras

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.

Easy, Fast, Fragrant

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
