    Pretty tasty! The sauce was sweet with a tid bit of kick, but would adjust red pepper flags or add heat on your own if you like spicy food like me! Overall easy to make and quick

    My family loves this recipe. I add additional veggies and double the sauce.

    This dish turned out so good! I used water instead of broth, and not so much soy sauce because I had doubled the recipe, also added mushroom. Next time I plan on adding zucchini and carrots.

    Excellent! Family loved it!
    I reduced the quantity of soy sauce and brown sugar to 1/2 cup each, and used water instead of broth, and it still turned out too salty. I ended up adding 100g more of noodles and 1/2 cup of water to even it out. I also added some ginger, carrots, and cayenne pepper. The sauce thickened nicely and the dish turned out great after these adjustments.

    It turned out good. The sauce didn’t thicken but it was still tasty and not too salty.

    We have a hard time getting everyone in our family on board with a meal, so it’s typically chaos, but this recipe was a WIN for everyone! I took advice from the reviews, I only added 1/2 C brown sugar, used 4 packs of ramen noodles, and added some fresh mushrooms which I sautéd lightly with the green peppers, and it was great! It rated between an 8 & 9 to be made again in our house! (Victory!!!) thank you!

    I reduced the amount of soy sauce and sugar in the sauce and added onion flakes. I used tenderised steak and the meat was amazing in the sauce. Just the right amount of sauce to cover all the ingredients. I added mushroom and carrot to increase the veges and it came out perfect. Will definitely cook again

    It’s good, but it was way too much soy sauce. If I made it again, I would half the soy sauce and try adding a tbsp of oyster sauce to give it a bit more flavor.

    Overall taste was good! But the sauce never thickened up & there needed to be waaayyyy more noodles for it to be more authentic. Might try it again.

    Way to salty and sweet.

    Was really good. The family loved it. I used chicken broth that said no salt added, which was fine because the meal did not taste overly salty. I should have thought to reduce the amount of brown sugar. The noodles are sweet and I would have loved the salty sweet combo. Luckily the beef and the onions help balance it out. Next I might just get low sodium broth instead or no salt added or just reduce the amount of brown sugar. Great dish.

    All the boys in my family loved it. It does have a lot of salt. Only thing I did different was add less soy sauce if I make it again I will definitely use low sodium broth (I didn’t have that this time) and substitute water.

    We loved it. Even my 10 yr old did. I added a little more spice. So the sweet and spicy came thru great!

    My husband enjoyed it, but my 11 y/o son and I not as much. I used no-salt broth and low sodium soy sauce, so saltiness was not an issue. I added carrots and broccoli, which worked really well. I also reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. The sauce was really tasty. (My husband likes things more on the spicy side, so he did add a bit of Sriracha sauce to his portion) Even after watching videos on the proper way to cut flank steak against the grain, and an America’s Test Kitchen video suggesting pre-tenderizing with a small bit of baking soda and water, the meat was too chewy for my taste. I am admittedly very picky in that area. Perhaps I cooked it a bit too long? My husband was OK with it. Might try making it again someday with a different cut of beef.
