Mongolian beef is a Chinese-American dish that has all of the best Asian flavors. This keto Mongolian beef takes minutes to make and tastes amazing!
Before you say it, I already know what you are thinking… ANOTHER Asian-inspired recipe. But, it’s ok. I still love it and love sharing Asian-inspired recipes with everyone, so more to come! Even though Mongolian beef is not a true Mongolian dish, it’s still a delicious one. Believe it or not, it was originally conceived in Taiwan where “Mongolian” restaurants first appeared.
This keto Mongolian beef is absolutely no exception.
The first time I ever had it was many years ago on one of my first trips to P.F. Changs. My mother and I were on a trip and decided to give the restaurant a try. In case you are wondering what I thought of it, it was delectable. There are copycat recipes galore that recreate the experience, but unfortunately, almost all include sugar.
And it’s easy to make… Hopefully, by now at least most of the ingredients listed are in your pantry. If not, a quick trip to your local Asian market or specialty store can easily fix that. If you don’t have either of those, a few minutes on Amazon yields the same results.
I’ve had several variations of the recipe over the years. Some try too hard, while some add too many ingredients trying to “make it new and different.” Our version keeps it simple and easy, perfect for those who have limited time to cook after a long day.
Pair this with a batch of our Keto Cauliflower White Rice, and you have a perfectly keto lunch or dinner in about ten minutes. Add that to the fact you are eating real, non-processed food, and this recipe is what I’d consider a win!
- Cut the flank steak into bite-sized slices (remember to cut against the grain!)
- In a wok over medium-high heat, add a splash of olive oil and cook the ginger and garlic until fragrant (about 1 minute)
- Add the rest of the ingredients to the wok (except the steak) and reduce to medium heat
- In a non-stick skillet, coat the bottom with olive oil and sear the steak pieces
- Cook until steak chunks are still lightly pink in the middle (or your preferred level of doneness)
- As the steak is finishing, turn the wok to high heat and bring the mixture to a rolling boil
- Add the steak to the sauce and stir constantly until the sauce thickens and the steak is well coated
- Remove from heat and ladle steak and sauce over some of our Super Easy Keto Cauliflower White Rice
