​5-Ingredient One-Pan Mongolian Beef Recipe With Broccoli Cooks in 10 Minutes

Rich flavorful recipes don't always have a bunch of ingredients and take all day to make. This easy, healthy Mongolian beef recipe with cauliflower rice has just five ingredients and cooks in one pan. Perfect!

The five-ingredient one-pan Mongolia beef is so easy to make! Marinate the sliced flank steak in soy sauce for about 15 minutes (longer if you have the time). The steak is cooked first, followed by the broccoli which cooks in water and a packet of Splenda for a little sweetness. Serve the Mongolian beef over riced cauliflower for a healthy meal. Don't like riced cauliflower? Try brown rice or quinoa. 

This beef stir-fry recipe is a complete meal, but you could add a side salad or another fresh vegetable. It's a quick, delicious lunch or dinner.
