Where Are the Good Takeout Places?

We moved across town almost five years ago and we still have not been able to find a good Chinese takeout restaurant in the area. That, my friends, is a travesty. It just is. We’re not looking for anything fancy, just good basic Chinese takeout.

When we lived across town, we had a go-to Chinese place and it was the best. It wasn’t fancy by any means, but it was just the kind of Chinese we were after.  

Our order was very simple, pork fried rice, subgum chowmein and sesame chicken. Every.Single.Time. It was always delicious and just what we were looking for.

We have tried several places on this side of town, some of them even deliver, but nothing even comes close to our favorite place. It’s ranged from totally flavorless to totally rubbery chicken…..not good.  

I finally had to take matters into my own hands and create something I could make at home that would make us feel like we were eating Chinese takeout.

Making Our Own Takeout

What I came up with is a healthy version of beef and broccoli stir fry. It’s also quick and easy to make. I think it may actually take more time to call in the order and go pick it up and it’s certainly quicker than the 45 minutes we waited for delivery of our mediocre food.

But what about the flavor? Well, I think this one is pretty darn good. I added a little spice to give it a kick and then balanced that out with a little honey to sweeten it up just bit.  

It’s every bit as tasty as takeout and it’s a lot healthier. You definitely won’t find as much sodium or fat in this recipe, so help yourself to seconds.
