Beef Stir Fry

One of my favorite dishes to eat is Mongolian Beef, so when I saw this recipe for Beef with Snow Peas on Pioneer Woman, I knew I had to try it!

I will start by saying that this took more work than my typical easy dishes!  I had to multi-task, I do this all the time; however, it took me much longer in the kitchen.  This was definitely a good dish to make during nap time so that I was able to concentrate and make the dish exactly as the recipe instructs.

I did a few things differently one is that I used a thin sirloin steak because it fit my budget much better than flank steak, and it tasted great!

I took one bite of the steak and realized, that I will be using this more frequently in my stir fry dishes.  I plan to remake my Pineapple Stir Fry to include this steak as well.  Don’t forget now, I am a steak girl!

I also used brown rice to add a bit more nutritional value as opposed to white rice.

This dish was delicious; however, I had my taste buds worked up to the spices of Mongolian beef, and this did not have that taste.  I plan to make this again and will be adding Mongolian BBQ Sauce to it, I think that would be a great addition to add a little more zest.

My husband and I both enjoyed this dish and we even let my toddler try a bit.  This was a success!
