Honey sesame beef with rice on a black plate.

Hey hey it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb and I’m SO excited to share one of my very favorite go-to weeknight meals with you. We don’t have spectacular Asian restaurants near us but I get a takeout craving at least once a week so I am always making Asian inspired dishes at home. This honey sesame beef and snow peas has the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors and is such a breeze to whip up in about 20 minutes – you just can’t beat that when it comes to easy weeknight dinners!
