Today my mind is going a million miles a minute! I’m excited, nervous, and stressed all at the same time.

The way I tend to get that “nervous energy” out is by biting my nails. I know, I know! My mom has been telling me since I was a kid to stop. My husband tells me to stop … because I told him to tell me to stop! I hate that I do it, but I do it none the less and its because my stomach is a bundle of nerves right now.

There are a couple of large decisions that I need to make within the next week and I just want to make sure that I am making the right one. I don’t want to look back and miss a blessing that God was intending to give me.

I am an over-analyzer by nature, so I could look at something once and be convinced one way and then find another article online and be convinced of the complete opposite. I guess it’s good that I’m married to a smart business guy who can look at two options, see the pros and cons and move forward with ONE decision and be okay with it. OH how I wish I had that!

So, as we head into the weekend. If you think of me or pull up my page to make a recipe, say a little prayer for clarity of thought and wisdom. I appreciate it and give you many virtual hugs and kisses!

Enough about me, let’s talk about food shall we?

One of my favorite foods to eat besides Tex-mex food is Asian food. The only draw back with Asian food is I’m still trying to figure out all the flavors! I rarely make it at home. We usually just order take out from P.F. Changs or Pei Wei, plus it gives me a night off.

But this week I was feeling adventurous, and when that happens it means either a huge success or fail in the kitchen.

Lucky for you it was a huge success! Mike is a big fan of Mongolian Beef so I decided to try that out first. The sauce for this recipe is pretty simple, you just throw 5 ingredients into a pot, let it simmer, then toss it with the beef and viola Honey Sriracha Mongolia Beef!Β  It is sweet spicy and all kinds of yummy!

This recipe calls for arrowroot. I use this in most of my recipes in place of flour or cornstarch to thicken things up. It can be found in the spice aisle along with all the other spices. πŸ™‚

I made whole wheat rice noodles to go along with this dish and then added some raw carrots and cucumbers for a little crunch and nutrition! Plus, eating vegetables along with pasta and saucy Mongolian Beef is a great way to eat them! πŸ™‚

So the next time you are thinking about ordering take out, like me, just make your own take out. The flavors are perfection and your tummy AND your wallet will be thanking you! Bon Appetite!

  1. I’ll be thinking of you this weekend and hoping that your decisions come easily. You can weigh your pros and cons until the cows come home (and believe me, I do that), but at the end of the day, be sure to listen to your gut. And now, this stir-fry….I need to make this immediately!

    1. Thank you girl! So so true Dara! What I am really looking for is peace this weekend, if I have it then I know its the right decision. πŸ™‚

      And heck yes you need to make this recipe! De-lish!

    1. haha… oh my goodness! I totally forgot to type that in! Thank you thank you thank you! I told you I was stressed and clearly it’s effecting other things as well. I just added it in. Sorry about that. Blonde moment!

  2. I am THE biggest over analyzer. I can’t help it, it has always been in my nature. We are struggling with a few big decisions too and it can be really hard to know what to do. Sometimes I feel “lead” in one direction and others not so much, so I totally understand! I hope things work out the way you hope they will! This delicious dish looks like the perfect meal to help you figure it out! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh… I’ll be praying for your decisions too Annie! Thanks! πŸ™‚

      And I agree, hopefully the Mongolian Beef will bring some clarity! That and wine! hehe

  3. Mariah @ Mariah's Pleasing Plates

    Praying for you pretty girl! I know God will lead you and guide you to make the right decision. This exact subject was just talked about at church a couple weeks ago and our pastor talked about how God has given him clarity in knowing that so long as you love him with all your heart and put him first then you CAN’T go wrong because he will use you no matter where you go or what you do. Sending love and hugs your way!

    1. thank you very much Shelby! Glad I’m not the only over analyzer out there, now we both just need to calm down and de-stress together! Deal? πŸ™‚ hehe

      Thanks for the pin sweet lady! Have a great weekend!

  4. Sending up a prayer for you for sure, Krista! I was in your shoes a couple of weeks ago with a tough decision, and after plenty of prayers I got the answer I needed. Thinking of you! And THIS just makes me drool! Perfect way to satisfy at take-out craving!

  5. Definitely just said a prayer that God would give you the wisdom to make the right decision, as well as peace in knowing you have made the right decision! πŸ™‚ I know these times can be so stressful! This meal looks amazing, by the way!

  6. This looks delicious! We eat a ton of Tex-Mex at home because it’s usually easy and quick (and tasty), and Asian food is something I would love to cook more of–that way the urge to hit the Chinese buffet wouldn’t be so bad!

    I’ll try this soon, I just have to pick up some arrowroot.

    Do you think this would be good served over zucchini noodles instead of rice noodles? We’ve been eating a lot of “zoodles” lately, to keep our meals low-calorie. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hurray laura, you’ll love it. And yes this would totally be good with zoodles, in fact I almost made this with them but then decided last minute to do rice noodles because I’d never made them before. πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy girl!

      Hi Krista, I found your recipe for Honey Sriracha Mongolian Beef while looking for something to make that was a little different and I choose the Mongolian Beef. I am so happy that I tried it, it came out wonderfully and quite easy to boot. I love looking through you recipe file and I can alway find something that is outstanding. Thank you Krista !!!!!!

  7. Kali

    What on earth are “whole wheat rice noodles”? Are they wheat or are they rice? Are they both? Even google doesn’t seem to have an answer…

    1. that was definitely a typo… my bad. it should have said brown rice noodles and they are found in the asian/international food aisle. πŸ™‚ sorry about that Kali!
