Good recipe... ends up more like a Lo Mein. Definitely a different taste and not too spicy. The spices are just right. I also doubled the beef and the marinade. Thank you:-)
This was a tasty meal. I doubled the beef, broccoli, vinegar, brown sugar and garlic, but left the amounts of pasta and all remaining ingredients the same. I think everything was perfectly proportioned that way (would have been way too much pasta in ratio to beef and broccoli otherwise....JMO). I marinated the beef for 12 hours...mmmm...nice and tender. I added some sliced onion. I like that this meal uses linguini rather than the Asian-inspired beef and broccoli recipes that use rice. I'll make this yummy, quick and easy meal again. Thanx! (I had no cherry tomatoes for garnish...sorry.)
