I refer specifically to the frozen Chinese Food entre labeled "Pepper Beef", Tai Pei Food, ID No. T529311 other
identifiers on box: 22:20pm BEST BY 04/20/13.
Yuk! I never have great expectations when buying frozen foods of any kind, but this taipei food cured me of ever again trying Tai Pei Food brand ANYTHING. As soon as you get the stuff out of the micro wave, let it sit for the recommended length of time, and then take off its cellophane wrapping- yes you are instructed not to remove it before you have cooked it- only the egg rolls caution you to remove the wrapper and open the box- you are reminded of the old Wendy's commercial: "Where's The Beef???!!!" I think you would need an Electron Microscope to find the stuff. But even if you overlook the lack of beef in the Pepper Beef, the stuff tasted horrible. I went to their web site, taipeifood.com and each time I was shut out along with a message saying it was taking too long to answer regardless of whether I used Mozilla Firefox, IE, or any other search engine. Call the company's toll-free number and you'll get an answering machine telling you to leave your name, telephone number and the numbers atop their product and they will get back to you. Thank God at least it's a free call because it is definitely a WASTED CALL. No one will call you back.
Yuk. Stay away from THIS stuff! It's awful and there's no beef in it that could be found! I did try this "Chang" frozen chinese stuff, in a much larger package, and at about twice the price, and that was better, but still.....Just buy the stuff from your local chinese restaurant- nothing frozen can equal the freshly prepared stuff! On a different note, one very surprising items was Trader Joe's frozen " Pork Masitas", 1 lb. 4 oz.,$7.99. It's pretty good considering it came frozen, and even a big eater's appetite should be satisfied. "Try It- You'll Like It!".

That's funny. I've had the tai pei Pepper Beef and I like it. To each his own.

You probably bought yours before the visit from the health inspectors and your dinner had some rat meat in it that others didn't. To each his own.

I Agree this brand sucks! The flavor is average. The texture is mushy at best. We tried the orange chicken, broccoli beef, chicken fried rice, general tsao chicken( or something like that), and the pot stickers. Everything is full of rice, a handful of vegetables, and "where's the beef" is right!! Absolutely no chicken or beef in anything! The potstickers where good, but we cooked them in a pan not the microwave. Which kind of defeats the point of microwave food.

I had the brand. You are absolutely right. One of the worst frozen Chinese products sold, and not cheaply either!
