Here’s the thing – Ryan and I are huge Chinese food fans. And, I’m pretty much constantly trying recipes to try to recreate the yum-factor.
But, I have to be honest – I have yet to find something that’s as delicious as our favorite Chinese food joint.
With that said – this is a recipe we tried this week that tasted pretty great.
Is it as good as Golden Garden? No. But, it’s a nice option when you want to avoid take-out. And the fact that it’s easy to make in the slow cooker means that it can be a weeknight winner.
