Mongolian Ground Beef is one of my top favorite Chinese takeout dishes. But that is the thing of the pasta now because I get to make it at home with this easy recipe. It is incredibly easy to throw together and I can get it ready in no time! This savory Mongolian Ground Beef is a classic. This is made with just basic pantry ingredients. I serve this over white rice with veggies like broccoli on the side for a simple, yet filling, delicious meal.
I love the combination of the sweet and slightly spicy flavor of this Mongolian Ground Beef. This tastes better than takeout and I can adjust the spice level according to my preference. Downright delicious and fantastic to serve over a bed of hot rice!

1 pound of ground beef
1/4 c. beef broth
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp rice vinegar

How to make Mongolian Ground Beef
Step 1: Place the soy sauce, broth, rice vinegar, brown sugar, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Mix well until combined and set aside.
Step 2: Place the ground beef in a large skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook the meat over medium heat until browned.
Step 3: Adjust the heat to medium-low. To the pan, add the garlic and ginger. Continue to cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until aromatic.
Step 4: Add the sauce, stir, and let it simmer for about 1 to 2 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
Step 5: Stir well until the ground beef is coated in sauce. Then, add the green onions and briefly cook until wilted. This takes another 2 minutes.
Step 6: When done, serve the Mongolian Ground Beef right away over white rice with steamed veggies on the side. Enjoy!
