One of the Hubby and I's guilty pleasures has always been Chinese Buffets. Mmm... we especially love the ones that serve Mongolian BBQ. I've tried numerous times to make something at home that even resembles the delicious goodness but I've failed horribly every time. Gross! I found a recipe for Sesame Noodles and did not have much hope for it-- I tried it anyway and am pleased to say it blew me away. Hubby asked that I make it once a week. It wasn't Mongolian BBQ by any means but this stuff is packed with flavor, absolutely delicious and healthy. You can't go wrong with that!
