If you love Chinese Mongolian takeout, I bet you’ll enjoy this Mongolian Ground Beef. It is an incredibly easy dish that you can make in a snap. Feel free to add your favourite vegetables to the mix such as broccoli, peas, peppers, etc. Serve this over rice for a very satisfying Chinese takeout meal that everyone will love!

This Mongolian ground beef quickly climbed up the ladder to our favourite meal rotation. Unlike Chinese Mongolian, this uses ground beef and not thinly sliced strips of beef. Apart from that everything is pretty much the same. While cooking this Mongolian ground beef, I ready the rice or noodles. Before I knew it, everything is ready to serve. I seldom order Chinese takeout anymore because I know that I can easily make them at home. Give this a try very soon. I know you’ll love this Mongolian ground beef as much as we do!

How to make Mongolian Ground Beef

Step 1: In a large pan, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat, breaking the meat as it cooks. When done, drain the excess grease.
