Mongolian Barbecue

Mongolian Barbeque

What is better than getting takeout from your favorite Chinese Restaurant?!?

Everyone is very particular when it comes to some of the basic “fast foods” such as pizza, Chinese food, sushi, subs, breakfast sandwiches, bagel/donut shops, etc. But…have you ever had the pleasure of going to a Mongolian Barbeque?  If not and you know where to find one YOU MUST GO!!!!!  And if you don’t know of any….research and get on that internet! It is something anyone and everyone should experience at least once in their life.

Fresh produce, shredded raw chicken, pork or beef, tofu, lo mein noodles, brown or white rice….you name it, you can make it.  The process is super simple and really quick.  This isn't anything fancy people, it's just food done right.

Starting with your bowl you first choose your protein and then move down the cold buffet with assorted vegetables; broccoli, bok choy, carrots, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, onion, zucchini (you get the idea).  Then you are to choose your sauces that when cooked together are going to glaze your meal to perfection.  Wine, sweet and spicy sauces, soy, sesame, garlic & ginger; you are the creator to make this your own. 

The cooking process: the chef takes your bowl of goodness and places it on a large Mongolian Grill that is a huge, flat, round griddle.  Everything is placed on this sizzling flattop and is rotated until cooked through, being worked by the chef with very long chop sticks.  Your meal is finally magically placed in a new bowl and presented to you piping hot and ready to warm your soul.  Finishing toppings include sesame seeds, pineapple, spicy chili sauce, peanut sauce & toasted peanuts. You can also take a side of their local honey to drizzle on for some sweetness.

Inexpensive, quick and easy, fresh and healthy…what more could you ask for?  When your belly is full and your wallet isn’t empty, that makes me happy.

Try it, you’ll like it!
