Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (104 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.

"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. "

Real good, but udon noodles double the calories

Would not recommend udon noodles. For teh amount of calories, the satiety of them is not that great.

delicious, nutritious, all around great by itself
Popular with the entire family

I added some shitake mushrooms. Everybody loved it and asked for it to be made again.

easy - everybody likes it
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
