    Gotta watch the salt in the soy sauce - 5 spice powder & curry don't really need soy sauce - I used a little water & more curry instead. I also added some sugar snap peas & onions for more veggies. I love stir fry!! - 12/30/08

    I agree with the comments that there is an error in the nitritional info - no way can the cholesterol count be 0 . This does sound tasty but I will use ground turkey and brown rice for added health benefit, also add garlic, onion and some jalapeno pepper (we like spice!). - 10/26/08

    8oz of beef is not the same as 8 fluid ounces - I'm not sure how you calculated nutrition of "1 cup" of ground beef? I couldn't find any rice for under 140 cal/serving - I think the Spark calculator is off? I made it with 1/2lb ground turkey, no oil, & brown rice - 382 calories. Loved it! - 9/4/09

    I used "veggie ground" instead of ground beef, to make it vegetarian and substituted baby corn for one of the cups of bell peppers... and added a tbsp. of sesame oil instead of the soy sauce to reduce the sodium content and add flavour. By the way, I used brown rice for extra fiber and nutrition. - 10/25/09

I did a variation of not using curry/5 spice but rather using garlic chili hot sauce (available in Asian sections of most stores) and just a dash of low sodium soy sauce.

  • it calls for just a cup of ground beef for serveing of 4 which isn't very much meat. Using a pound of ground trukey would give it more meat with less fat. Use low salt soy sauce to cut back on the salt. When adding repices to use for our tracker it is important to have the right info to count it . - 10/25/09
