Yes, I know it has been a while since I have been here, but I think about my little spot on the web quite a bit.
Last night I made a recipe inspired by http://joyinmykitchen.blogspot.com/. I customized the Beef Noodle Bowl for our family.
Beef and Noodle Bowl - Kraft Foods (Modified by Snow White and Frog Prince)
*further modified by A Desire to be Heard
1/2 lb. linguine, uncooked
*five serving size
3 C broccoli florets
3 carrots, peeled and sliced (about 1.5 C)
*I think I used four carrots total
1 lb. beef sirloin steak, cut into strips
*1/2 red onion, sliced
*garlic cloves, to taste, minced
*1/2 head cabbage shredded
1/4 C Kraft Fat Free Zesty Italian Dressing
*I probably used about 1/2 cup total Kraft's Light House Italian
1/4 C Soy Sauce, low sodium
*ground ginger, garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes to taste
Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain. Toss with approximately 1/4 cup salad dressing. Set aside.
Steam carrots and broccoli to desired tenderness.
Heat about 1 tablespoon canola oil in a pan. Add onion and minced garlic. Saute for about 1 minute. Add beef, and cook, stirring, until cooked through. Add cabbage. After a few minutes add about 1/4 cup salad dressing, soy sauce, ginger, garlic powder, onion powder and red pepper flakes. Cook for a few minutes longer until sauce is thickened.
Combine noodles, carrots and broccoli and beef mixture.
Serve and enjoy!
"Thanks, SnoWhite, for the recipe.
