For our date nights, we very often go to PF Chang’s to enjoy a gluten-free dinner for two. One of my favorite dishes is their Mongolian Beef, although I don’t like how few vegetables come with it. This stir-fry offers the best of both worlds–delicious, spicy beef and healthy vegetables. This goes great on top of the Cauliflower Rice I posted last time! If you don’t have molasses, use 1/4 cup honey instead.
