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. "

Peanut Sauce Too Heavy

I was looking forward to this meal since I love cabbage and beef together. I made the sauce in a larger amount as some reviewers recommended. I did not like the peanut sauce at all. The peanut butter made it really heavy, gritty and too sweet (and I didn't add the sugar the recipe calls for). I think I might try it again without the peanut butter and see how it tastes. Bummed me out that it wasn't that good.

Quick and Easy, One-Pan to Clean, No Carbd
Needs more cowbell

I would recommend more aromatics for the peanut sauce: ginger, tamarind, lemongrass, shallot and something with some heat (I used one poblano). Also, I added fish sauce and coconut milk. I've made peanut sauce before so I just stuck with my stand-by recipe.

Where did I go wrong?

I am not sure what I did wrong. The peanut sauce was gritty and not "subtly sweet" Maybe I just don't like peanut sauce? Anyway, I ditched the sauce, and made a different one that I had from a Beef with Broccoli recipe. I served it with Rice. The cabbage, carrots and beef were great!

Beef, and Veggies are tasty
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
