We love Asian flavors and this is one that I can have with no guilt of blowing my sugars out of the water by subbing splenda for the sugar. It was delicious!


Review by DiabeticDelimma1

Loved the mix of flavors in the meat. Served with Chinese noodles, it was great!


Review by Dippity Du Da Deb

Have to agree with all the previous reviewers an all-around five-star recipe. Quick, super easy, great tasting and as I expected another Bea winner. Will be seeing to reruns in my kitchen!


Review by Gerry

This is one of those recipes that you go Mmmmmmfrom the first bite to the last and you are sorry when you finish the meal. Just enough spice to make it peppy but not overbearing. Easy to make. I got the ingredients together in the AM, put them in the fridge and made dinner in 15 minutes. I'll be making this one again for sure.


Review by Bergy

So yummy over some homemade noodles I had made. The kids loved it too and ate like troopers!


Review by Kitchen Magic

This is a very tasty beef dish. Easy to make and so delicious! I didn't serve it with pasta, but used rice wild rice instead. I added it to my rotation to make on a regular basis.


Review by BikerChef

I had this over ramen noodles (unflavored), and just loved it! I've never used these flavors with ground beef, but think I may make this a habit. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.


Review by breezermom

These beef dish sure has lots of flavor. I realized at the last minute that I didn't have green bell pepper, therefore I used chopped red onion for texture. My family and I enjoyed it over rice. Thank you QueenBea for sharing!
