Mongolian Beef Recipe – 5 Smart Points

Mongolian Beef

Forget the fast food! This healthier and lighter Mongolian Beef Recipe delivers all the flavor but with a lot less fat, calories, and sodium. Instead of picking up dinner from my local Chinese restaurant, I just whip up this easy dish instead! It’s simple and requires just a handful of ingredients that I most likely already have on hand. And it is DELICIOUS! When I’m making it for just myself, I often add in extra scallions or red peppers to kick up the spice level a bit. But when I’m serving it to the whole family, I make the recipe as is. And at just 5 Smart Points per serving, this dish is the perfect way to satisfy that Chinese fast food craving.

    What is a mild red chili pepper. I bought both red bell peppers and red Anaheim chilies. I love your recipes and I am the moderator for the Weight Watchers Over 60 Facebook Page and I refer to your website every week. Thanks for providing such flavorful and low point creations!

  2. Does the 5 points a cont for the rice as pictured or is that just the beef? Thx

  3. Yvette Thomson says:

    Does the garlic and ginger get added in with the beef? When does one add the extra 1/2 tbsp. of olive oil? Is the second portion of olive oil to sauté the chili peppers and scallions? Thank you.

    Why can’t I print out any of the your recipes? The ‘Print Friendly’ button only prints out the picture, not the recipe.
