In the last few months, to make up for not dining out at restaurants, we have been experimenting in the kitchen and attempting to recreate restaurant-style meals at home. One of our recent creations has been Mongolian beef, inspired by P.F Chang’s. Traditionally, this dish tends to be more sweet than spicy, but we switched things up and increased the spice level. We personally prefer more heat, but one could easily reduce it by leaving out the chilies.

To make this recipe, it’s essential to use high-quality beef. I obtained mine from Mamluks, a well-known company that provides pure, simple, hand-cut halal meat to Muslims living in Norway. I used their new app to have the meat delivered straight to my door. The app is user-friendly and provides next-day delivery options as well as click-and-collect.
