Mongolian Beef from George

Did we have a great dinner tonight! George from "A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse" posted his Mongolian Beef recipe this week. Immediately, the Trout and I knew we would have to try this.

We have prepared many meals in a wok, but this recipe is such a keeper!! It takes the zest of a tangerine and the juice of one and that made all the difference. A perfect combination of oyster sauce, hoison sauce, garlic...well, I could go on for a long time. For a side, we had Chuka soba noodles which was perfect with the wonderful sauce that accompanied the beef.

I am going to refer you to George's blog for the recipe, because I want you to see more than this recipe. He has a fantastic food blog and is very knowledgeable. Have no doubt. This is a must try recipe.

    I am not a cook but I check his blog almost every day because I love to read his comments. He not only gives the recipes but he precedes them with pithy comments and then follows with interesting tidbits.

  6. I love George's recipes. I just read on his blog that he used to be a chef in a gourmet coffee shop. No wonder he has so many great treats on his blog.
