This recipe has been a long time coming and I am happy to share it with you finally! One of Roy’s favorite foods is Mongolian Beef and we have eaten a LOT of it from many different takeout and eat in places. Before the Instant Pot I had not been able to make a decent batch that was easy to replicate but this recipe is IT! Surprisingly it only took a few tries to get this one just right, the first few times the salt to sweet ratio was off for our liking. If you have tried our other recipes you may note that we are fans of big flavors, this recipe is no exception to that. Even though there are plenty of places these days that offer healthier versions of takeout foods, they are the minority and having a good recipe for something like Mongolian Beef is great! We got pretty used to a place near where we used to live but don’t have as many options where we are now. Personally anymore I just prefer our home-cooked meals to restaurants, especially with the kids having agendas aside from sitting at a table waiting. Living in the outer suburbs of Portland we are not always up for the long drive to get a dinner out if our local options aren’t open or if we aren’t feeling like eating them again. All in all, having easy recipes for things that we love like this, pizza and tacos is very handy!
