Mongolian Beef

Thank goodness I had planned in advance for this meal. We already had our ingredients before it snowed two feet this weekend. Last night we put together Mongolian beef, with jasmine rice, vegetable egg rolls, and slaw. Anthony thought this was one of our better stir frys

Mongolian Beef
We used this recipe with a few slight changes

Mia Cucina-Marisa

We put some fresh ginger through the garlic press, had snowpeas instead of green onion, and we have this spicy pepper oil we use to stir fry instead of using peanut oil. Also we bought fajita meat that was already cut into strips. It was still flank steak, we just didn't have to cut it ourselves :) shortcut!

Asian Slaw
We bought some shredded cabbage and shredded carrot and pine nuts.
I wanted to recreate a thai lime sauce but I was missing quite a few essential ingredients like LIME and fish sauce! An Asian sesame ginger salad dressing was what we ended up using.
