We heart PF Changs. A lot. But given that it's downtown and not exactly cheap, we can't eat there all the time (I wish).Then I came across this awesome Take-out Fake-out recipe from Confections of a Foodie Bride. Worth a shot, right?
It doesn't look like much. I think both Hans and I were a little skeptical. Then we tasted it. So. Good. Seriously? So. Good. Make it now. Did I mention it's super easy, too?
1 lb. flank steak
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil + 2 Tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup of low-sodium soy sauce (make sure it's low-sodium, or it'll be too salty)
1/4 cup brown sugar (measured, not packed)
3/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 large green onion, sliced thinly
Slice the steak against the grain, thinly. With paper towels, dry off the meat.
Add the remaining 2 T. to the skillet. Add in the coated meat and cook until well-browned. Add back in the sauce. Stir frequently, or the meat WILL stick to the bottom!
