What's For Dinner Orange Teriyaki Beef With Noodles

Last night we tried a new recipe for us. My goal is to try at least one new recipe a week this year.

Found this recipe in my little Recipe book from Betty Crocker " Easy Weeknight Meals " September 2002.

Orange Teriyaki Beef with Noodles
prep time 5 minutes cook time 15 minutes

1 pound beef boneless steak cut into thin strips $4.05 ( not on sale) could of cut the cost if I had watched for a sale price.
1 can (14 1/2 oz) beef broth $.78
1/2 cup of teriyaki stir fry sauce $.90
2 tablespoons orange marmilade $.20
dash of ground red pepper ( cayenne)
1 1/2 cups frozen pea pods $.50
uncooked egg noodles 3 ounces ( I could not find egg noodles but bought noodles in the asian area. ) $1.29
Total spent for dinner $7.72

1. spray 12 inch skillet with cooking spray. Cook beef in skillet over medium heat 2 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown. Remove from skillet and keep warm.

2. mix broth, stir fry sauce, marmilade and red pepper in skillet. Heat to boiling. Stir in pea pods and noodles; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook about 5 minutes or until noodles are tender. Stir in beef. Cook uncovered 2 to 3 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. 4 servings.

1 serving 260 calories prepared as above.

This turned out really good and very tasty. Changes for next time. My fry pan was to small, will use a bigger one. I must of cooked the last part to high because it used up most of suce and a touch dry.

Will make these changes for next time but is a keeper in my recipe collection. We ate roughly half of it and will finish for lunch today..

I am sharing this at the following foodie blogs
Life At Mom is meat less this week so I shared my creamy cheese potato soup recipe since this is not meatless. If you are looking for meatless be sure to take a look.
