Nutritional values

The Asian beef shines in the ES-Food-Check with good values: Its ingredients cover the daily requirement of vitamin B12, niacin, vitamin C and the trace element zinc to 90 percent. The vitamins are indispensable for physical well-being, the many spices get the metabolism going.

If you cannot get water chestnuts, you can replace these Asian vegetables with red or yellow peppers. Both look good with the green peppers and also provide vitamin C.
