This Mongolian Beef is one of the first dishes that I modified to fit Trim Healthy Mamain an S Meal setting. It is a favorite of mine and Rick’s.
You can serve this like I did here with sauteed cabbage or with Not so Naughty Noodles (Konjack noodles) either of these would be amazing. Just remember to rinse the noodles really well and dry fry them before serving.
I really like using fried cabbage with this Mongolian Beef recipe because it adds trace minerals that aren’t in the Not So Naughty Noodles (Konjack Noodles). However using the Not so Naughty Noodles does lower the calories in this dish.
- Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- ½ teaspoon minced fresh ginger or ¼ tsp powder/ground
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- ½ cup braggs liquid aminos

- Place the sauté pan back over medium heat.
