We decided on Asian cuisine for our Tuesday dinner. One dish we enjoy from our take-out place is Mongolian beef. It doesn’t look too difficult to replicate. I found a recipe that looked doable on http://Rasamalaysia.com (search on the website for Mongolian beef). Here is what ours looked like –
Since I wanted a smaller portion, I filled half my plate with salad. I think the bitter greens with the acidic dressing were a nice counterpoint. I can definitely see broccoli with this as well.
We would have liked it spicier and next time will add chili flakes to the marinade and two super chiles to the sauce. (Our recipe was tripled since we were feeding more people.) Also I think searing the meat hard would give it more depth of flavor.
Tomorrow we are making lasagna for our Italian entry!
