Mongolian Beef

2 Dec

What is your favorite happy hour place?… The fiance’ and I usually go to PF Chang for happy hour every time we go see a movie. I mean it is right next door, but it’s also really really good! PF Chang has happy hour every day from 3pm to 6pm. There are not many places that have happy hour every single day. One of the things I like to get off the menu besides those delicious Chicken Lettuce Wraps, would be the Mongolian Beef. Juicy beef strips with a sweet sauce and a hint of spice. What’s not to love? Eating out can get a bit pricey so I decided to make my own Mongolian Beef at home. Why not? I think I will give myself a pat on the back. I won’t order this out anymore if I can make it at home. Well… maybe I will lol. Next are those chicken lettuce wraps.
