Mongolian Beef

  • Author: The 4 Blades
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 with a side dish 1x


Mongolian beef is a staple for many when ordering Chinese. We love this combination of thinly sliced beef, deliciously sweet sauce and slightly crunchy spring onions. The sauce is so good you will almost want to lick your bowls clean.
