Okay really, this is my copy cat version of my favorite dish from PF Chang’s/Pei Wei. It’s not their recipe, but it’s as close as I can get it. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how truly easy it is to make it at home.
Have you tried it? It is so delicious and yummy! But I don’t care for the mushrooms…I usually just push them aside and let hubbyman steal them. The kids don’t care for them either, so I opted to leave them out of the recipe.
Like mushrooms? Just add sliced mushrooms to the sauce when you add the green onions. Problem solved!
One of my favorite parts of the meal is scooping up the last of the rice with all that sauce and a little chili sauce too. I like it spicy! Oh yeah! I could probably just eat that and skip the actual meat. LOL! My rice cooking habits have changed over the years. I started off using a food steamer, then to the stove, but now I use a rice cooker. I love my rice cooker from Aroma Housewares! Do you have one?
You need one! I have the big daddy of all rice cookers, it makes 20 cups of rice. Can you say PAR-TAY? Honestly, it simplifies meal time so much. I don’t have to watch the stove and love using the timer to have it ready when the rest of the meal is ready. Our lives are hectic these days…tutoring, piano, scouts, you name it, that I will take all the help I can get. If it’s a really crazy day, I use it to steam our veggies and cook the rice at the same time.
And did I mention, this bad boy can also be used as a slow cooker? Oh yeah…you do remember that I have an obsession with my slow cookers, right?
