A delicious side-dish or garnish for Mongolian Beef and Broccoli are roasted Shishito Peppers. Recipe: Preheat the broiler, and adjust oven rack to set about 4 inches from heat source. Toss( 8-oz) shishito peppers with 1 tablespoon of preferred cooking oil. Spread the Shishito Peppers in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil the peppers until lightly blistered and slightly soften, 3-5 minutes. Be sure to occasionally turn the peppers with spatula or shake the baking sheet to allow peppers to blister on all sides.
