RR: This was really good! One of my dh's favorite meals is Mongolian Beef so I decided to try this recipe for him on Father's Day. I made the recipe as is and I really feel that 2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper is way too much! Dh loves hot stuff and he was having a really hard time eating it. So, if you decide to make you might want to cut back on that ingredient. Overall the sauce had a really good flavor and dh asked me to make it again with a lot less crushed red pepper. I served with 1/2 cup white rice and some mixed veggies.
