Mongolian Ground Beef Noodles

Sharing is caring!

This recipe for Mongolian Ground Beef Noodles came about as an effort to clean out the pantry after the holidays. Little did I know it would quickly become a family favorite!

Serve this delicious dish in this gorgeous white serving bowl I found on Amazon

Every January, I refuse to go to the grocery store until my fridge and pantry are depleted to the point I can no longer put together a meal.

In fact, I have not been to the grocery store but once since December 15th. We have been eating on everything we have — and because of that, I was able to create this delicious new dish for my family.

I did adapt the Mongolian Ground Beef part from I Wash You Dry. I took her recipe and tweaked it a bit for my family's preference and made it my own.

This meal reminds me of a lot of my One Pan Cheeseburger Pasta meal that takes about 20 minutes to make. It also has the flavor of my homemade Eel Sauce — which I think comes from the Hoisin flavor.

So — because of how easy this is to make, let me walk you through this!

How to Make Mongolian Ground Beef Noodles

To make this, you really only need a few simple ingredients — and if you are like me and keep a stocked and organized pantry, you can totally make this on the fly at your house too!

Of course, if you like having your ground beef delivered to the home, the ground beef from Butcher Box is amazing, and it gets delivered straight to your home.

While you are cooking your ground beef, you can let your noodles cook as well in a pasta pot making this a quick 15-minute dinner recipe.

For the ingredients list you need for doubling the sauce–

The original recipe calls for cornstarch and water and smaller amounts in the ingredients, but because I am serving this with pasta — I did not need the cornstarch.

The reason for this is because the pasta itself is starch and will provide everything we need to thicken the sauce.

I doubled the sauce as well because I knew the noodles would soak it up and wanted to make sure there was plenty.

Cook the ground beef in the skillet with the ginger and garlic. Drain off the fat.

Add in the other ingredients (minus the green onions and toasted sesame seeds).

Remove the noodles from the pasta pot and add into the skillet with the ground beef.

Now, let it keep cooking for a bit until the sauce is thick and coats all the noodles and the meat.

Serve alongside with a delicious salad and a loaf of my Copycat Cheesecake Factory Honey Wheat Bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef

    2. While the ground beef is cooking, get a pot of water started for your pasta noodles. Be sure to salt the water well so that your noodles soak up that flavor.

    4. Let them saute in the pan for about 3 minutes to allow the ground beef to absorb the flavors.
    5. Once your pasta is done cooking, transfer the noodles to the ground beef mixture. Mix thoroughly and allow to cook for a couple of more minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
    6. Top with green onions and toasted sesame seeds for the perfect noodle dish!

I have made this 2 times now and I liked it best the first time I made it. I think that a whole box of linguine is too much. Your photo of the dish doesn't have nearly as many noodles as I had. We could hardly see the ground beef. And I don't know what I did, but the second time wasn't spicy enough or the sauce thick at all. Anyway, we still liked it. Also, your time to complete the meal seems way off too. There's no way you can make the sauce, mince the garlic, and mince the ginger in 5 minutes. The whole process took me about 45 minutes.

I am sorry that the process took you 45 minutes. You must have done something different because everyone else who has made this as well as myself can do it in 20 minutes or less. Sorry that you were not satisifed. Try again and see if you can figure out where you are off.

I’ve made this recipe many times,it’s a family favorite. Not too salty for our tastes but I guess that’s a taste preference. As a matter of fact I’m making it again tonight 😋

I know. We think it tastes great as is but I like my food to have lots of flavor -- SALT! :)

Absolutely delicious, I will be making this again, not too salty like some of the comments, I used 1 lb of dry linguine, no pasta water as I salt the pasta when cooking. The sauce got sucked up beautifully. Taking leftovers for the Boss tomorrow for lunch. :)
