Low Carb and Delicious: Mongolian Flank Steak

IMG_2385

I used to love Mongolian Beef when I was kid when my parents used to take me to our favorite Chinese restaurant. I haven’t had it in a while, so I tried to replicate the dish with flank steak and make it as low-carb and low-fat as possible. I served mine with broccoli and had some rice for the kids, and everyone was happy. I hope you like this recipe for Mongolian Flank Steak that I developed for Laura’s Lean Beef.┬áSee their website for more great recipes.
