Love PF Changs Mongolian Beef? This easy copycat recipe tastes just like the original – tasty crispy beef served in a deliciously flavored sweet soy sauce. And it can be on the table in about 30 minutes!
I’m so excited! It’s time for our November Secret Recipe Club, where a group of fantastic food bloggers get together once a month and prepare and share a recipe from a fellow blogger’s site. This is all done in secret until all is posted on reveal day. It’s one of my favorite groups and I have found some fantastic new food bloggers/friends and got to try delicious recipes that I might not have found otherwise.
This month I was happy to receive Patricia’s blog, ButterYum. Patricia is a wife, mom and self taught cook. She taught herself so well that she now teaches cooking classes of her own. What better way to learn how to cook than with someone who has done it herself?!
When I first visited her website, I loved looking through the array of food photos and found myself drooling over so many of them. It was really difficult to choose what to make. I am definitely going to try her Mozzarella Sticks, sounds like inspiration from her Italian side, for our big football game Saturday, and I am certainly not going to miss her Glazed Acorn Squash, which would be perfect for the Thanksgiving table.
But what did I choose to make today – her copycat recipe for PF Chang’s Mongolian Beef. Why? Because it’s one of my favorite dishes when I eat at PF Changs. (And who could pass up all that tasty looking crispy beef?) Now you are probably wondering if it tasted like the restaurant version – well, it was pretty darn close!
I just made a few changes in the recipe as we don’t like too much sugar in our diet, so I reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup and found that 1/2 cup vegetable oil worked fine for frying meat. If you like PF Chang’s, you will love this recipe. And don’t miss checking out more great SRC recipes at the end of this post.
