      I thought that this convenient, healthful entree would be great for those times when I don’t want to cook, but it turned out to be a mushy mess with a bland, icky flavor.

      What You Get

      Beef steak and peppers usually comes on a bed of rice, but Hormel put it on a bed of noodles. That was okay, and it does have plenty of strips of beef steak in it. However, it tates pasty. The only noticeable flavor is the strips


      of red and green bell peppers. The “savory sauce” tastes like beef gravy, which is just plain wrong. This is an Asian dish, and it should have an Asian sauce!

      Nutrition and Preparation

      The nutrition info looks good. The whole dish has only 230 calories, with 5 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber and 20 grams of protein.

      You can boil the package in a pot of water on the stovetop for 8 or 9 minutes, or if you’re in ...


      • a hurry, you can pop it into the microwave for 90 seconds. Either way, however, you get a mushy mess that tastes like paste.

        Packaging

        The packaging is a problem. It’s a plastic tray with a sheet of plastic over the top of it. This type of package is usually convenient and easy to open, but not this one. I couldn’t peel off the plastic cover, which was glued down permanently to the edges of the tray, and which was almost as

        strong as steel, so I had to cut a slit in it with a knife and then use the scissors to cut it open. The plastic is so tough that it was too difficult to cut the whole thing with a sharp paring knife.

        Recommendation

        If you want a sloppy mess that almost reminds you of beef stroganoff, but has very little flavor, this might be okay. I do not recommend it.
