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.
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.
15 Reviews for Beef & Cabbage Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce
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!
Would not recommend udon noodles. For teh amount of calories, the satiety of them is not that great.
I added some shitake mushrooms. Everybody loved it and asked for it to be made again.
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.
