Bonus Recipe: Orange Teriyaki Beef With Noodles

    Due to the overwhelming response by one person to request I post a pictured meal, I present to you another fine selection from the Betty Crocker 300 Calorie Cookbook.  As I've mentioned before, sometimes I mess around with recipes. Substitutions and omissions happen with alarming frequency. That occurred with this particular recipe. I couldn't have been happier with the results. So, in the interest of full disclosure, I will print the original recipe in black. All changes will show immediately in blue. Here we go:

Orange Teriyaki Beef With Noodles
  • 1/2 pound beef sirloin, cut into thin strips (I used stew meat)
  • 1 cup reduced sodium beef broth (this dish is crazy sodium packed. I just used water)
  • 2T teriyaki sauce
  • 1T orange marmalade
  • Dash of cayenne pepper (I left this out and substituted a tablespoon of my hot pepper jelly)
  • 1/4 cup sugar snap pea pods (omitted and substituted with a red bell pepper and 2 scallions)
  • 1/4 cup uncooked fine egg noodles (omitted and substituted with a pack of Ramen noodles. Save the seasoning packet for something else.)
  • 1.5t corn starch
  • 1.5T cold water
  1. Heat 1T oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef in skillet for 2 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown. Remove from skillet; keep warm.
  2. Add broth, stir-fry sauce, marmalade and red pepper to skillet. Heat to boiling. Stir in pea pods and noodles; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook about 5 minutes or until noodles are tender. (Big changes here. Add broth, teriyaki, marmalade, pepper jelly, pepper and scallion. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes.)
  3. Cook Ramen noodles as directed, strain and set aside. DO NOT USE THE SEASONING PACKET.
  4. In a small bowl, combine corn starch and water. Stir until dissolved. Pour into broth mixture.
  5. Stir in beef. Cook uncovered 2-3 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
  6. Serve over Ramen.
Serves 2. About 270 calories per serving

Good times!
