Lately, chinese food has definitely been on my mind. When I came across this recipe I knew I had to see if it compared to the chinese food that I love. I made a couple of changes by using low sodium soy sauce and took the brown sugar from 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup. The low sodium soy sauce made it not quite the same as what you would get with regular take out but it still tasted really good.
I placed ours on lettuce wraps but you could definitely serve over rice or noodles. The crock pot is generally thought of as a fall or winter kitchen appliance but it works out so well when it is hot out as it doesn’t generate so much heat and makes a delicious meal while you are busy with your day.
Lastly, this recipe can also be made ahead and frozen. I have been researching freezer meals and once a month cooking to try out before the baby is born. Stay tuned to see how these recipes work out…I will be sure to share.
Have you ever tried once a month cooking or freezer meals??? Let me know your thoughts!
All 4 of us have known Carmen, well, forever – as long as I can remember, we went to Sunday School and then Youth Group together and eventually she and I (Becca) were roommates at Bible College. We live many miles away from each other now, so we depend on Facebook to stay in touch. Carmen and her husband spend their days raising three wonderful children. She loves a good deal and shares about how to make the most of every dollar on her blog, Budgetista.
