      What a great use for ground beef!!!! I tweaked a bit by cutting back to 1/2 T oil, using 1/2 lb lean ground beef, and adding some shredded carrot, sliced bell pepper and broccoli I blanched in the pasta water. I added the veggies at the end with the noodles so they would stay crispy. I only needed 1 T cornstarch to thicken, and 3/4 lb pasta. Was soooo good we can't wait to have it again.

      Unlike Mars.Ombriel, I've been cooking quite some time and actually know how to do so. I think this dish is DELICIOUS and much better than any other asian noodle dish I have tried. I can't imagine anyone thinking differently, and wouldn't alter the recipe a bit. Perhaps that is why the previous reviewer didn't care for it, I can't imagine anyone not liking this wonderful cuisine!
