SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
When my husband said, "This is really good, excellent" for the third time, I figured I better give it 5 stars. It is so easy to make and the taste is deliciously different. I used 1/4 cup organic dark brown sugar as I don't believe Splenda is all it's cracked up to be and I wanted an earthier flavor.
We did not care for this. WAY to sugary. will NOT make ever again.
This was very good! I tried it this evening. I used frozen whole green beans, a tad bit more soy sauce while cooking, and let it cook a little longer to ensure the green beans were done. I also used beef stips (stir fry beef) instead of ground beef. Served it on a bed of brown rice. It was really good! Two thumbs up!
This was a super quick and easy recipe, enjoyed by me, my husband, and our teenaged son!!
I chose to substitute Johnsonville Sweet Italian Sausage in place of the beef. Everything pulled together nicely, and resulted in an interesting taste combination. I'm sure I will be craving this in the future!
I didn't have enough soy sauce for this recipe so I cut the amount of brown sugar I used. We had it with brown rice and it was very yummy. Can't wait to try it again with the right amount of soy sauce. Oh and I used all organic everything! Cheers to your health! :)
This came out pretty well. We were surprised, since all of the ingredients were fairly simple and throughout the prep it didn't look or taste like much. But we both really liked it. The soy sauce and the sweetness from the Splenda were a really good mix. I actually added a bit of hot sauce to mine, since I like everything spicy, but it was good both ways. Very easy to make.
My daughter loves green beans and she loves beef. I was excited to make this, but she wouldn't even touch it again after the first bite. I thought it was terrible too.
