Lovely recipe, I made it exaclty as directed and wouldn't change a thing. Loved the blend of spices with the beef and it all went together fast and fairly easy. The noodles are just that extra that makes it a complete meal, I may even try some other thai noodles next time. I wasn't real sure about the amount of water as it didn't list it in the directions and I used 1 cup which I think was a little to much as I had way to much left over. Next time would reduce that to about 1/2 cup. Made for "My 3 Chefs - 09"
