One of my favorite Asian restaurants is PF Changs. PF Changs has an awesome atmosphere and the food is great. It’s not your average Asian sit down.

Every time I visit the restaurant I order the house-made egg rolls and sub the house sauce for Mongolian sauce.

 

So of course their sauce inspired me to make this recipe. Not to mention, I’m a fool for Asian food!

As a matter of fact, I visit a local Asian restaurant at least twice a week for lunch. Other than that, I cook most meals at home.

 

But let’s keep it real, I’m human, I still work a 9-5 and just need a break sometimes.

Maybe when I master cooking all of my favorite Asian recipes, I’ll go less often, but for now, that’s my splurge a few times a week.

I wanted to share a few tips with you to ensure this dish comes out perfect for you all:

 

  • The Mongolian sauce is meant to be pretty sweet, but if the sauce is too sweet for you, add more water and mix well.
  • 1/2 c of light brown sugar and 1/2 c of dark brown sugar was used for this recipe, but you can use all light brown sugar or all dark brown sugar. I just think the mixture of the two is a richer flavor, but the sauce is great either way.
  • I always season my chicken while it’s cooking. Although this sauce is very flavorful I think that meat lacks luster if it is not seasoned during the initial cooking process, so season it modestly with your favorite seasoning.

 

This sauce is also great with our Beef Egg Roll recipe! One of these days I will get around to making a blog post just for the Mongolia sauce.
