GROUND MONGOLIAN BEEF
How to Make Ground Mongolian Beef
- Brown the beef really well and keep the crumbles on the larger side.
- Add the sesame seeds while cooking to get more of a toasted flavor from them.
- If you want even more of a classic Mongolian beef flavor add more green onions cooked down in addition to garnishing with them.
- Top with spicy mayo or make it into a Mongolian Beef Burrito.
Why make them with ground meat? Well for one it takes a third of the time. Secondly, if you brown the beef/chicken really well it still tastes crispy. No deep frying is needed and it makes a great easy meal served over rice with some vegetables.

Tools used in the making of this Ground Mongolian Beef:
Sesame Oil: The flavor of sesame oil in this dish is unmistakeable and not really able to be substituted. Some Asian grocery stores will try and sell less expensive options that aren’t actually sesame oil, so just be sure the one you’re buying is authentic sesame oil.
Mirin: A sweetened Asian wine, if you don’t use this use white wine with a ½ teaspoon of sugar.
