    This is a great recipe. I love Chinese food and this helped take care of the craving. I think I would use the thin Chinese noodles the next time I make it.

    This was pretty good – next time I will use dry pasta to cut the cost without altering the flavor any.

  • Alisa

    This was okay. It lacked intense flavor. I added more soy sauce and used broccoli instead of snow peas. Overall, it was one of the low-fat dishes that you could tell had been modified. Perhaps a little sesame oil would have helped.

    This is a good recipe to cure a chinese craving. It is a little dry so I doubled the sauce and increased the WW points accordingly.

    My husband and I love Asian food, and this is a pretty good recipe! We’ve made it with several other kinds of vegetables since we don’t like carrots and it turns out fine every time. Also, I cook the garlic with the beef, because otherwise the garlic tastes too raw and strong.

  • Nicole

    Cooked it for my boyfriend. We both thought it lacked flavor, so i just added more soy sauce and garlic, then it tasted great. Overall, pretty good and easy to make!

  • Teresa

    I made it with lo mein noodles and cooked the garlic with the beef and onions. It was VERY GOOD!

    I have made this one several times, add what ever veggies you like or have in the house at the time. My husband loves it with loads of purple onion and green and red peppers. I use whole wheat angel hair pasta, lowers the overall points. I always add a little bamboo shoots for crunch. Life is good!!!
