recipes Aug 05, 2022

While we don't follow any particular diet in our household, opting for a flexible attitude focusing on whole real foods, I would say our family's eating style is closest to a Mediterranean diet. Mostly plants, the occasional sweet treat and when we choose a meat dish, it is always good quality and needs to be super tasty, like this recipe! Mongolian Stir Fried Beef is a simple, delicious lunch or dinner dish. It won't take too much time, and you can cook it on the fly in under 20 minutes after work. Or, if you are prepping your meals in the morning, you may like to place the steak in the sauce and have it act like a marinade to infuse the flavours. Dinner leftovers are always tasty for lunch the next day.
