    Very good and easy to cook. Good for a quick family meal. With the soy sauce the kids thought it tasted like Dim Sims!  -  20 Nov 2009


    We thought this was excellent. It reminds me of chow mien. We served over white rice! I used pre-packed, pre-shredded cole slaw, which saves on chopping time and an extra packet of chicken noodle soup mix. Very good and would make again!  -  21 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a good recipe. I make it differently. I use oil not butter and add 1 grated carrot. 2 tablespoons of curry powder or to taste (most important ingredient) I also cook it differently. Soften onion. Add carrot, celery, curry powder and meat and cook until meat browned. Add soup mix and 2 cups of water (or half the quantity specified on the soup packet). Simmer for 15 mins. Add beans and very, very, very finely sliced cabbage. Stir well. Cook with lid on for about 5 -10 mins or until cabbage cooked as you like it. I serve it with steamed rice or noodles and it makes oodles! The curry powder really makes it.  -  25 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
