Mongolian Ground Beef – 15 minutes and dinner is done!

Mongolian Ground Beef

This is what I call an emergency dinner. Not because it precedes or follows an emergency but because it is a dinner I turn to when dinner absolutely feels like an emergency. (And we’ve all had those nights, right?) When time is short, when I’m out of ideas, when I have nearly nothing in the fridge, this fifteen-minute Mongolian Ground Beef is something I turn to time and time again.
