PF Chang's Gluten Free...At Home!Tuesday, March 27, 2012
How wonderful is PF Chang's restaurant? Seriously.
I just love that they've adopted an extensive gluten free menu. Not only that, they prepare their food separatly and bring the dishes out on plates that look distinctly different than their "normal" plates. I've eaten there many times (we even had our wedding rehearsal dinner there) and have never gotten sick! So awesome!
Well, while PF Chang's has a wonderful menu, we all know they are a bit pricy...special occasions only right! :)
But...check this out. They've posted two different recipes on their website that we can all make at home!
First, an appetizer...
Gluten Free Shanghai Cucumbers
recipe found here, on their site...just scroll down to the bottom.
Look how short the ingredient list is!
- 12 oz. Peeled and Seeded Cucumbers, cut into 1” pieces
- 1.5 oz. Gluten Free Soy Sauce
- 1 tsp. White Vinegar
- ¼ tsp. Sesame Oil
- ½ tsp. Toasted Sesame Seeds
Then, a main dish...
Gluten Free Mongolian Beef
recipe also found here, on their site.
- 12 oz. Sliced Beef Tenderloin
- 1 tbsp. Soy Bean Oil
- ½ tsp. Garlic
- 2 fl oz. GLUTEN FREE soy sauce
- 2 tbsp. Sugar
- 1 tsp. Rice Wine
- 2 oz. Green Onion Sticks- 3" long green only!
- ½ tsp. Sesame Oil
That was more of a call to action for me! Seriously, I can't believe I've never attempted to recreate their dishes at home. So far this is what they have on their site. If you know of other homemade remakes of PF Chang's please share!
