Sweet and slightly spicy Mongolian Beef with Noodles tastes better than take-out and you can make it in a fraction of the time required to pick up take-out!
This Mongolian Beef was a huge hit with my whole family. I saw the recipe over on my friend Kristen’s blog, Iowa Girl Eats, and immediately put the ingredients on my grocery list. (Well, technically, I bought the cabbage and pulled the flank steak out of the freezer, because yes, I do buy ridiculous amounts of most meat in order to always have it on hand!) Her noodle bowls looked so tasty, I couldn’t wait to try them.
I made the Mongolian Beef again the very next night, because I couldn’t resist playing with the recipe and spicing it up a bit. I served the beef without noodles the second time and it scored a huge thumbs up once again from my crew. We all preferred it just a little bit more spicy.
Don’t be scared of the chili paste, or if you are hesitant to try it, reduce it to half the listed amount. The amount of sugar in the sauce balances it nicely, it isn’t at all a “spicy” dish, even with the chili paste.
