This Mongolian Beef is fast, delicious and will rival your favorite take-out! This delicious recipe uses elk meat instead of the traditional beef.
I strive to put great food on the table every night. In our busy household, this is often challenging. I need quick meals that I can pull together at the last minute and that everyone will love.
Mongolian Beef is a winner in our house. It’s fast, easy and delicious!
Full disclosure….this is Mongolian Beef, but I didn’t actually use beef! I used elk meat! Beef or Elk Meat, it doesn’t really matter. Either meat works perfectly in this dish.
We eat a lot of wild game. I often just substitute elk or venison in a recipe. When I first met Rod, I had no idea what to do with a freezer full of wild game meat. I’ve learned what cuts are tender and how to substitute different meats. More often than not, I use wild game in recipes like in these meatballs. Please use what works for you.
Another favorite take-out recipe to make at home is this Orange Chicken.
