Recipe Notes

Use vinegar, rice wine vinegar or lemon juice instead of lime juice. Only add 3 tablespoons of these replacements and taste before adding the last tablespoon.

This dish can be vegetarian, by switching the beef for firm fried tofu and bean sprouts. The beef can also be switched for chicken, duck or turkey.

Use Hokkein noodles, or a zoodle and Hokkein blend, if carbs aren't an issue. Konjac or Shirataki noodles can also be used for another low carb option.
