  1. I know… I was shocked to learn this couple of years back…
    We have this joint that sell mangolian style recipes… They have this huge skillet and they do some good stir-fry…
    Anyways I have to say yours look MUCH AWESOME.

  2. Thanks for telling it like it is!! Which still makes it a nice dish to enjoy: remember when it was regarded as SO exotic way back when :) !

  3. Wow! You take such a great shot of Mongolian Beef! Hmm I need to make this one of these days. I rarely have it at a restaurant (because we always have other foods we want to eat) but now with this recipe I can make it at home!

  4. Hey Raymund, I made this last night and we loved it! My husband commented that he has never had mongolian beef that he liked until now. I added broccoli and doubled the sauce — it was delicious. Thanks for another great recipe. :)
