Kei Wei

Last night I made Mongolian Beef for this week's challenge dinner. I was really excited about it because the Chinese food in this area really sucks. The meal turned out ok, but it definitely wasn't the WOW you get when you eat this at Pei Wei. I guess I will keep looking. I did take a picture, but then I dropped the camera and its dead. Shouldn't this thing have some sort of reset button? I'll try to figure it out and post later.

I served it with pot stickers I bought from the grocery store with a homemade hot and sour chili sauce. My aunt gave me this recipe and it ended up being a real winner. I ended up drizzling this sauce over the Mongolian beef because it was simply too yummy just to dip into.

Hot & Sour Chili Sauce

3 T. Soy sauce
2 T. seasoned rice vinegar
2 T. sweet chili sauce
2 T. scallions, minced
2 t. hot chili oil
2 t. fresh cilantro, minced
1 t. garlic, minced
1/2 t. fresh ginger, minced

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.

If you find some REALLY good chinese recipes, pass it along. Scott will love it, although he does appreciate quality!
