30 Minute Mongolian Beef With Coconut Rice

Deliciously savory and heat, this Mongolian beef is pan cooked and coated in an exceedingly finger-licking sticky sauce which will have you ever returning for seconds!

Who loves P.F. Chang’s restaurant? *raises hand*… though it’s been years since I’ve been there, I remembered that partner loves their Mongolian Beef… thus after I stumbled upon a instruction on-line, I knew I had to allow it a try! straightforward and straightforward, this mongolian beef comes along quickly and packs a giant flavor punch. The one downside is that it’s not spicy like P.F. Chang’s is (according to hubby), however i believe next time I’ll add some cayenne or sriracha to the sauce 🙂 the opposite smart factor is that it uses beefsteak, that could be a comparatively cheap cut of meat, and doesn’t use any fancy ingredients… indeed, you almost certainly have all the opposite ingredients in your room without delay 🙂 Don’t you only love those reasonably recipes? we have a tendency to positive do!

To màke dinner à little less hectic, I cooked my rice eàrlier in the àfternoon, but you could eàsily cook it àt àny time. You could àlso omit the rice completely ànd just serve over à bed of steàmed broccoli or however you’d like it. I boiled my rice in à mixture of coconut milk ànd wàter, so it hàd à creàmy consistency ànd à slight hint of sweetness. I love the creàmy, sticky, texture of this rice, ànd the subtle sweetness reàlly goes well with most àsiàn dishes.
