Umami Mongolian Beef & Broccoli
Umami – a taste sensation. In Japanese, Umami literally means “deliciousness” and “savoriness”. Delicious savoriness. That is exactly how I want this Umami Mongolian Beef dish described.My husband said, “Wow, this is actually really good. I was expecting it to be bad” (true story – thanks Boo). I don’t know if he trusts the Instant Pot yet. But, man, I am telling ya… read through the rest of the recipe blogs on here, because I am starting to trust it along with my favorite Instant Pot Accessories with my life!My husband loves Chinese food. However, my husband doesn’t necessarily trust me to cook any kind of “umami” Chinese. Truthfully, I have had some epic Chinese food fails in the past, so I can’t blame him. We usually opt for takeout or dining out when it comes to Chinese.
Well, mark it on your calendar Boo (my hubby), I got this one today!!
This is my version of Mongolian Beef – I have seen a ton of recipes, but in order to get that deep, delicious Umami, I created my own with some of the BEST ingredients when it comes to developing that “deliciousness” umami flavor has to live up to.
