A note about serious food allergies

Chinese takeout never tasted so good, in that it never tasted like home cooking you made yourself without having to calculate a tip for the delivery guy. This meal tosses steak strips in a mix of chili sauce, soy, and Sriracha, for just the right mixture of sweet, salty, and spicy. For additional uniqueness, the delicious, mysterious shishito peppers compliment the beef perfectly. Sprinkle some peanuts on top, and you've got yourself a yang-yang dinner for the ages.
