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.
Beef & Cabbage Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce
From EatingWell: January/February 2009
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.

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.
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.
Loved it!! This is one of my favorite recipes. I have already made it half a dozen times! Its fast and easy. I can't wait to make it again.
This was a great simple recipe. My grocery store was out of savoy cabbage so I used green cabbage. Still tasty but I am sure savoy would have been better. Can't wait to make it again. Oh, I also added some red bell pepper and red pepper flake, very yummy!
