30 Minute Spicy Mongolian beef

Mongolian beef takes almost no time at all to cook. There’s no reason this shouldn’t be a regular meal for your family.

Here’s a few tips. Use high quality steak. Anything cheap will probably be too tough. I’ve used different cuts of meat, but was impressed with a tri-tip steak.

Another tip would be not to overcook the green onions. Add them at the end while the pan is still hot for the best results.
