I first had Mongolian Beef at PF Chang when we lived in San Diego. I instantly fell in love with the flavor. The beef and scallions are a perfect match with the ginger and garlic.
This is my version of Mongolian and is a lighter version compared to PF Chang’s famous dish. Although the calories have been cut, you will not miss the flavor! This dish has about 300 calories per serving compared to 720.
I mean look at it, it’s mouth watering.
This is a huge calorie savings when you are paying close attention to your calorie intake. As many of us look to improve health while we decrease our waistline, this dish fits right in.
I often have to double the recipe because my husband loves this dish so much. Just the other day he nearly walked away with my plate thinking I was finished and he could snag the last.

I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
