Jason and I are trying to cut down on ordering out so I’ve been trying to make a lot of take-out dishes right at home, whether it’s Chinese orange chicken, honey walnut shrimp, or PF Chang’s Mongolian beef. But my new favorite has to be this unbelievably easy 20 minute Thai peanut beef.

Seriously, I kid you not – this dish really comes together in just 20 minutes with 10 minute prep, maybe even less. It’s a simple peanut butter sauce that you stir in to the cooked flank steak. That’s it! Not to mention how tasty it is too! The subtle sweet peanut sauce blends in so well with the crisp beef slices, and when you drizzle on that Sriracha, it is absolute perfection.
