Dude. I am so bored sometimes with the same ‘ole meals.
But this Instant Pot Mongolian Beef?!
Freaking party in my mouth.
Makes me wish I’d named this site “inside my mouth party.”
And the meal itself was so fast–well, and it would have been faster if my husband hadn’t wanted to eat it on the back porch–and spent an hour power washing the furniture. Sigh.
Every time summer rolls around, it’s the same thing. LOL!
But, at least the Instant Pot Mongolian Beef was fast.
And I could have added veggies at the end, but I was sadly out of carrots and broccoli.
Yeah, both at once. Go figure.
Whatever, though, the Instant Pot Mongolian Beef is so fanfreakingtastic all by itself.
It doesn’t need any veggies.
It stands alone.
But, if you don’t have beef, you can’t make Instant Pot Mongolian Beef.
So, go ahead and pin this, that way you have it when you finally get your beef.
