Busy weeknights are a regular occurrence in my home. Between weekly community group meetings and school events, cooking for my family has become a competitive sport, ha! I’ve learned that having some quick and easy recipes on hand helps to keep me a little less frazzled about dinnertime and my family’s bellies full. I’m not one to sacrifice flavor, so I’m known for being picky about which recipes make the cut. Fast and easy doesn’t always mean delicious, but I know when I use the new P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu sauces, I’m practically guaranteed a mouthwateringly tasty meal. My recipe for these Quick Mongolian Beef Lettuce Wraps delivers all the bold Asian flavor I love in an easy recipe.

In a skillet, I add some ground beef and finely diced onion along with some salt and pepper and cook it all together until the beef is no longer pink and the onions are translucent.

Then I add in some garlic and ginger.

And here’s where the flavor makes it’s appearance with a hefty drizzling of P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Mongolian sauce. They make a variety of sauces in flavors like the newest addition, Soy, along with Sesame, Kung Pao, and Teriyaki, any of which would work beautifully in this recipe.

Next I add in some green onion and water chestnuts and let everything come to a simmer, allowing that delicious sauce to penetrate the meat and veggies.

Once it’s done, I serve the beef inside a fresh piece of romaine lettuce for a fresh crunch.

These versatile Quick Mongolian Beef Lettuce Wraps are a delicious weeknight meal solution for moms like me who refuse to sacrifice flavor when pulling together a last minute meal. The new P.F. Chang’s Home Menu sauces, available at Walmart, are going to be a regular flavor saver in these parts and will be readily available in my pantry for when I want to add easy Asian flavor to not just my quick weeknight meals, but any of our dinners.
