i love my wok...
Asheville is a great town as far a food goes. If you want great Japanese, Thai, Indian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Ethiopian, French, Cuban, El Salvadorian, Jamaican, Fusion, Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Organic, or Local food, you will have some serious options. However, if you want good Chinese food, you are seriously at a loss. Well, not entirely, as there are one or two places in town that are mostly OK. (Please let me in on any little-known secrets!!!) But they don't deliver or really even make take-away easy. And they are way over on the other side of town. Not quite conducive to our lifestyle. And for the most part, that's fine. I don't need to eat Crispy Scallion Chicken, or Sezchuan Shrimp every day. And I do make a mean lo mein in my electric wok. But every once in a while you just need more of a fix.

Fear no more...after much experimentation with sauce packets and stir-fries, I've finally come up with a simple recipe for Mongolian Beef worth staying in for. Part of me wants to plant a huge crop of spring onions, just to have the fixin's on hand in a few months. (hmmm...add this to the list of what to plant once I get space for a real garden.) We've made this recipe twice in the past week. So far...
