We love Chinese takeout or a good asian stir fry. Did you realize you could throw together a healthy and delicious mongolian beef dish in about 25 minutes? We are grateful to ChihYu of I Heart Umami for sharing her tasty recipe with us below. ChihYu hails from Taiwan and her speciality is transforming all her favorite asian meals into paleo, Whole30, and keto friendly dishes. If you crave asian food, she’s your girl. We recently interviewed her on our podcast (listen here) and truly enjoyed hearing her story. She shares about the transition of life as a concert pianist to full-time food blogger and what motivates her positivity. Listen in and enjoy.
As ChihYu explains in her video, the key to good Mongolian beef is the heat of the pan and duration of the cook. It’s important to work with a very hot pan in order to get a crispy sear without overcooking the meat. This stir fry is simple and super quick to throw together on the fly. Make sure to have all the veggies and aromatics julienned and ready to cook. This way, you’re not scrambling at the last minute and over cooking anything. It will all be ready within minutes and best served pipping hot. If you’re looking for a way of tastefully adding more veggies to your life, a stir fry like this one is perfect. Add carrots, broccoli, or red peppers to mix it up. ChihYu has kept the ingredients in this recipe completely paleo so no refined sugars or corn products.
