Forget the takeout and make this delicious 20-minute meal that everyone will enjoy!

Jason and I have been trying to reduce the amount of food we order out, so I’ve tried to make many takeout dishes at home. Whether it’s Chinese Orange Chicken or Honey Walnut Shrimp, this 20-minute Thai peanut beef is my favorite.

This dish is ready in 20 minutes, with a 10-minute preparation or even less. This is a simple sauce of peanut butter that you mix into the flank steak. That’s it! It’s delicious! It is absolutely delicious! The sweet, subtle peanut sauce goes so well with the crispy beef slices.

Next time you order takeout, I urge you to try this recipe – it is so easy, quick, and sure to become a family favorite!
