Combining two flavors into one dish – a hit of chipotle infused into this popular chinese cuisine. You’ll want this Chipotle Mongolian Beef over stir fry noodles for dinner!
CHIPOTLE MONGOLIAN BEEF OVERVIEW
Yes, you read that right! Chipotle and Beef are in the HOUSE!! Of course, I can cook beef too. It’s just been awhile. I want my recipes to have alot of variety. When you’re stuck in the house for a few weeks, you tend to experiment alot with food. I decided to experiment with beef, flank steaks to be exact!
CRAVING CHINESE FOOD?
Are you craving chinese food right now? You can make your own if you have some of these in your pantry, fridge, and freezer.
I actually used udon noodles (left overs from one of my blogger challenge) for this recipe as we didn’t have jazzy rice. If you dont have udon noodles, you can use ramen noodles or cup of noodles. I have a feeling alot of you have those, right?!
WHY DID YOU USE CHIPOTLE IN ADOBO SAUCE?
I wanted to give this a smoky yet tangy flavor to this dish. Coming from the Los Angeles culture, we love creativity (and now living in Albuquerque, New Mexico) I began to create fusion types of dishes. Combining Latin/Hispanic ingredients sparked an idea and thus, I created this Latin-Influenced Chinese dish.
- Flank Steaks thinly cut
- Organic Mini Sweet Peppers
- Chipotle in Adobo Sauce
- 1 Udon Noodles + Save the seasoning packet
HOW TO MAKE THE CHIPOTLE STIR FRY SAUCE
In a small bowl, mix half of the noodle packet, cornstarch slurry, low sodium soy sauce, and maple syrup together. Then throw in the slurry over medium high heat. Then add the chopped chipotle peppers. Turn down the heat when sauce thickens.
