Have you ever tried an Asian style fried chicken? It’s got many names including Korean Fried Chicken, Garlic Fried Chicken, and Mochiko Chicken, just to name a few.
But whatever you call it the taste is very similar and the recipes are pretty much the same. And of course it’s delicious! It’s slightly sweet, slightly salty garlicy chicken pieces that are delicately battered and fried to a crisp chicken that’s tender and juicy on the inside. In short it’s perfect!
Serve it hot over a bed of hot steamed rice or a stack of noodles. A crisp fresh salad of greens makes a great addition. Or serve it as a nice lunch on a bed of mixed greens and drizzle with the homemade garlic sauce.
For the tastiest Asian Garlic Fried Chicken make the sauce ahead of time and marinate your chicken pieces in some of the sauce overnight in the fridge. Also this recipe uses boneless skinless chicken thighs not breasts which tend to be less tasty and dry.
My family loves this delicious chicken dish I’m sure yours will too!
this easy sesame beef stir fry is incredibly flavorful and easy! serve with authentic ramen noodles, over rice, or in a lettuce cup for a lower carb version! Chinese takeout is something we all love right? Sesame Beef Stir Fry is a guilty pleasure and takes so little time to arrive to your door! however what if I told you that you simply may build one thing as as tasty, in precisely concerning constant quantity of time… and YOU get to manage the ingredients? Sounds superb right?
In many ways, yes! The tender crisp vegetables really retain additional nutrients by preparation quickly during a pan or pan than they might if they were stewed. This specific fry uses 2 totally different children of oils, however in comparatively tiny amounts, that is far healthier than preparation during a great amount of oil (like most takeout Chinese restaurants do – a minimum of in my area).
1 lb flank steak, thinly sliced 1 cup snow peas, sliced in half across 1/2 cup sliced carrots 8 green onions, sliced 1/4 cup beef broth 2 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce 1-2 Tbsp honey or light brown sugar 1 Tbsp rice vinegar 1/2 Tbsp minced garlic 2 tsp sesame oil 1 tsp grated fresh ginger 1 tsp cornstarch 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes 2 Tbsp vegetable oil (for cooking)
1. Combine marinade ingredients in bowl and add flank steak. Set aside 15 minutes.
2. Heat 1 Tbsp vegetable oil in large skillet over MED HIGH heat. Remove excess marinade from steak and cook in a single layer, for 2-3 minutes, stirring to cook both sides. Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to do this in batches. Remove steak to plate.
3. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp vegetable oil, then add peas, carrots and green onion and cook stirring often, 2-3 minutes.
4. Whisk together broth, soy sauce, honey/brown sugar, rice vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, fresh ginger, cornstarch, and red pepper flakes. Add steak and sauce to skillet, stirring to combine. Sauce will thicken.
5. Stir in cooked ramen noodles if using, and serve!
As many of you know one of my daughter’s gave me an Instant Pot for Christmas last year. It took a few weeks of staring at the box before I actually opened it; all those buttons were a bit intimidating! But once I made my first recipe, Instant Pot Beef Stew, it was instant love! Now I don’t know what I’d do without it! So I’ve been exploring possibilities and one of my new favorites in this Instant Pot Mongolian Beef.
Mongolian Beef is a family favorite and we always order it when we dine at Chinese Restaurants, we love the tender morsels of beef in its delicious sauce. I’ve tried to make it at home, after all it’s just a basic sitr fry, but I could never get the meat to be so tender. I’d tried all sorts of cuts except filet mignon, I mean seriously who’d use filet in a stir fry? Whatever I did I could never get it as tender as the restaurants do; that is until now! It never occurred to me that the secret was in the cooking method. I mean all the recipes said fry the meat in a wok or a pan, I’m guessing you’d get very tender meat if you stir fired filet mignon, but at over $15 a pound that wasn’t going to happen anytime soon!
Well it seems to me the secret to tender beef is to pressure cook it! Enter the new love of my life, the Instant Pot! When I adapted my Mongolian Beef stir fry recipe to the Instant Pot the whole dish changed! It transformed from a pretty good stir fry to a tender delicious restaurant worthy dish! This Instant Pot Mongolian Beef is seriously delicious!
But it’s not only yummy, Instant Pot Mongolian Beef is easier than stir fry! What? Easier than stir fry? How is that possible? First of all my original recipe has me marinating the meat for at least an hour; no need to marinate Instant Pot Mongolian Beef so that cuts kitchen time down a bit. And stir fry requires you to, um, well, stir what you’re frying; with the Instant Pot Mongolian Beef stirring is kept to just a few minutes to brown the meat. And best of all from start to finish you could get Instant Pot Mongolian Beef on the table in about 30 minutes!
I serve it over steamed white rice which I make in my Zojirushi Rice Cooker. You can even make bowls and bentos with this recipe!
So here’s the recipe for Instant Pot Mongolian Beef!
2 Lbs. Flank or Sirloin Steak cut into small thin slices
