RECIPE // Superfast Mongolian Beef with Udon Noodles

Happy Thursday, friends! We are so close to the long Labor Day weekend I can taste it! I am looking forward to a weekend of relaxing, hanging out with friends, and spending as many hours as possible poolside.

I also love how long weekends afford you the opportunity to do some thoughtful grocery shopping and fun meal planning. Today’s recipe is an easy but *insanely delicious* Cooking Light entrée and is sure to please even the most discerning of taste buds! I made this dish last Sunday evening and it was a huge hit in my house. Best part? It’s healthy. Can’t beat healthy and yummy!

A big thank you to my friend Talley for introducing this recipe to me a few years ago!
