If you like quick and easy Asian dishes, this recipe will meet the bill. But, we found it to taste more like a "packaged" Asian dish and not a fresh, authentic flavored meal. It was nice not having a lot of prep for this meal - using the frozen veggies, the pre-cut matchstick carrots and a can of chopped water chestnuts really make this a snap to make. I used a wok to prepare it, which shortened the quick cooking time even more. I did not use NY strip steak as the recipe suggested. I used a cheaper cut - one recommended for stir fry - and it worked well. My husband and I felt the "1 Cup" of marinade was simply too much - the orange and ginger flavors in the marinade are VERY strong. It coated everything so thickly, you couldn't discern the flavors of the vegetables and aromatics. If I were to make this again, I'd cut the sauce back to half a cup. If you are not a fan of the texture of ramen noodles (which is easy to overcook), rice would be a good option.
