|Lutfisk... looks horrible, doesn't it? It is.|
There are 2 downsides to this. #1. It still all tastes like damned fish and potatoes. #2. Said carefully disguised fish and potatoes will cost you an arm and a leg. On average, $30-$40 per person for food that wouldn't make the cut in your average U.S. restaurant.
So I've gotten creative. I've learned how to cook everything under the sun.
I didn't get the job that I was hoping for and it was just one too many slaps in the face since I moved here. I was in serious need of comfort food so I retreated to the kitchen, the place where I feel powerful and successful (because I'm awesome at food) and I made Mongolian beef using this recipe from blogchef.net.
And it was brilliant!
Even if you have a great Chinese restaurant down the road, you still want to make this. The recipe made enough for about 4 people with the rice and broccoli, and the Man and I at it ALL.
Neither of us could sleep after because we were so stuffed but it was SO worth it.
And that is all I have to say about that.
