Yatsobi (Beef, Cabbage and Ramen Noodle Stir-Fry)Submitted by: SEESKO
IntroductionThis is the best recipe. We love it. I usually leave out the bacon in the interest of calories and it is fine. Recipe and photo was originally on recipezaar.com by Nimz~. NOte: the sodium content looks really high, but you don't use the seasoning packet in the ramen noodles, so it is actually much lower than stated.

Add carrots and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Stir-fry on medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender. (We like ours crisp so you may want to cook longer).
Prepare Ramen noodles as directed on package, drain, and toss with a little olive oil to keep them from sticking together (do not add the seasoning packets).

This was a really good recipe. When I first made it, it seemed sort of bland, so I used teriyaki marinade instead of soy sauce and added 1/4 tsp 5-spice pdr, 2Tsp beef bouillion powder and 1/2 tsp of sesame oil. My famioly thought the second batch had a really good flavor.
I changed the noodles to soba.. did thin beef strips cut into small pieces.. added frozen stir fry veggies which is carrots, red/green pepper, pea pods, then my own chinese cabbage and a bit of the teriyaki sauce and it is very good. easy and good..better the next day I thought.. watch portions as w - 8/8/10
My first recipe I have tried from Sparkpeople! We received a cabbage (I rarely buy one) & needed to find a way to use it. I searched & searched thru the recipes here & chose this unique on. My picky husband said it was one of the best meals I have made in a while! I didn't add all the veggies. - 10/20/09
Just to let you know those little packs of ramen are FRIED. Not sure if most people realize this. Rice noodles might be a better substitute. I'd also use a low sodium bullion cube instead of the seasoning packet. Fry the veggies with beef instead of bacon. Good idea for a place to start though. - 3/26/13
