So actually I used bison in this Mongolian Beef recipe, but of course beef or elk would be great too. We love the grass-fed quality red meat we get from Northstar Bison. In addition, I used “Zero Pasta”. You can find this scientific gift to pasta lovers in the Vegan cold section of your grocery store – where they also keep the tofu for those of you not familiar with this section of the store! The texture on this pasta is awesome and its a great vessel to soak up some yummy sauces. See also my cold peanut noodle salad recipe featuring this awesome pasta nearly free of carbs and calories!!
- 2 packages of “Zero Pasta” found in cold vegan section of your grocery store
- 1 lb grass-fed beef, bison or elk (I like to slice it really thin when its still frozen)
- 2 TBSP vegetable stock
- 2-3 cloves of chopped garlic
- 2 tsp fresh minced ginger (or ground ginger if you don’t have fresh)
- 1/3 cup of low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 TBSP calorie free sweetener (like Stevia or Truvia)
- 1 TBSP sugar free maple syrup
- 2 TBSP Hoisin Sauce
- 1/2 – 1 tsp of chili garlic sauce (depends how spicy you want it)
- 4 green onions diced
So while your bison is still frozen, slice it really thin with a sharp knife. It should almost look like beef shavings. Let it rest on the cutting board, defrosting as you prepare the other ingredients.
In a bowl, combine the ginger through chili garlic sauce with a whisk. Drain your “Zero Pasta” in a colander over the sink.
In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable stock over high heat with the chopped garlic. When they stock starts to boil, add in the bison (or beef) and cook until nearly done. It will take just a minute or two since it’s sliced so thin. Then add in the prepared sauce and finish cooking the bison. Remove from heat. Use tongs to toss the “Zero Pasta” and diced green onions into the beef.
Based on the amount of ingredients the Mongolian Beef (bison) dish should make 2 portions if divided in half. I’m not usually so lackadaisical about measurements but this is one of those recipes where the sauce is so much better when added to the meat and finished on the stove! So your portion will be a bit eye-balled here but the ingredients are healthy and meal plan approved. You’ll be close!
