Mongolian BBQ and Orange Veggie Stir Fry

Mongolian BBQ (at least that's what we like to call it) is one of my families favorite dishes.  And of course it's super Simple, super Healthy, and super Tasty!  It's not really a recipe so I will just tell you what we do.  Be sure to look below for a great Orange stir fry recipe!

Mongolian BBQ
First we cut up a whole bunch of raw veggies, etc. and set them out on plates.

Veggies we like are: 
Snow peas or Sugar snap
Bell Pepper
Water chestnuts
Bamboo shoots
Baby corns
Roasted Cashews and/or Peanuts

We cook some whole wheat spaghetti noodles and drain them. We do whatever kind of sauces and oils we want.  Usually some olive oil, we like the Orange sauce recipe below Shoyu, Teriyaki (READ INGREDIENTS I get mine through Azure) Pineapple or Lemon juice is also good for those who like spicy chili pastes, sauces or oils, garlic sauce, whatever you want.  We fill up our plates buffet style with the noodles and whatever veggies we want then we take it to the stove and put it in a preheated Wok or frying pan and stir fry it all up!  So easy and so good!

Prep time:  About 15 minutes
Cook time:  About 5 minutes

Orange Veggie Stir Fry
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
Favorite stir fry veggies cut up

Cooked Brown Rice

Sauce Ingredients:
2 Tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup water
2 Tablespoon Orange Juice Concentrate
2-4 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
(depending on how sour you want it start with 2)
3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar
4 Tablespoons Nama Shoyu 
1/2 cup Sucanat
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
(less or more depending on how spicy you want it)
4 teaspoons arrowroot powder
2 Tablespoons water
2-4 drops orange essential oil (optional, but I really like the added orange flavor)

Stir Fry Veggies in Olive oil until crisp tender.

In a small saucepan, saute garlic in olive oil. Add water, orange juice concentrate, lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce, Sucanat and pepper flakes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. In a small cup mix together arrowroot powder and water until thoroughly blended. Pour arrowroot mixture into sauce, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring over medium heat until sauce thickens to your liking. Remove from heat and combine with stir fried veggies.   Top the Cooked brown rice with the veggie and sauce mixture.
Prep Time: About 20 Minutes
Cook Time: About 45 Minutes (only because brown rice takes that long to cook you can be doing the other stuff while rice is cooking so the time overlaps.  It will only take 45 minutes total time if you do this.  And only about 20 Minutes of your time!)

I love Mongolian BBQ! We make it a lot at my house. Instead of using spaghetti noodles we use Soba noodles. Its so fast and healthy! A little more expensive, but to my worth it, besides you don't want too many noodles. Just lots of veggies

Since I am still learning, I didn't know you could eat essential oils?

Tammie said...

Maile: Only certain kinds and probably only brands you trust. I have a few good recipes from Be Young though that I am excited to try! Always remember though less is more with essential oils.

YorFavSis: Hey thanks it's amazing what a few simple pointers will do. Your the best!
